A sappy vegetable cake which Herbivores find delicious, which will be automatically eaten when needed for healing. Alas, humans and carnivores tend to find its taste repugnant.

Sweet Vegetable Cake is a dish in Ark Survival Evolved. It can be created at a  Cooking Pot or  Industrial Cooker.

When force fed to a tamed herbivore, it restores 10% of the creature's maximum  Health over the next 30 seconds, with a minimum of 500 HP and up to a maximum of 2100 HP restored. There is a 30-second delay before another one can be used. Creatures will consume it automatically as long as their health is below 85% - however, only herbivores receive the effects.

Since patch 252.8  Carbonemys and  Doedicurus no longer gain health from eating this dish.

It is also used to tame the  Ovis and the  Achatina. It is also the only food the Achatina will eat and will recover 500  Food upon consumption.

Sweet Vegetable Cake requires  Water to cook. Be sure to include a  Waterskin,  Water Jar,  Canteen or  Tek Canteen with at least 25% water in the  Cooking Pot. The  Industrial Cooker can use water from irrigation pipes instead of the water containers.
