Cake is a bad yellow drug.


In 1996, Cake emerged in Prague, Czechslovakia.

A year later, it appeared as a legal drug in the UK. 

Cake is a 'made-up' drug, being composed of artificial chemicals. Its yellow colour is achieved through use of an industrial dye.


A young user of Cake is known to have cried all the water from his body, and another vomited out her own pelvis bone.

The use of an industrial dye in the drug causes a phenomenon known as 'Czech Neck,' whereby the user's neck swells up until the face is completely enveloped.

Cake also contains a psychoactive compound, dimesmeric andersonphosphate. This ingredient stimulates Shatner's Bassoon, and so drastically alters an individual's perception of time.

In experiments, ingesting Cake caused rats to swell massively. 

F.U.K.D. and B.O.M.B.D.[]

In 1997, anti-drug organisation F.U.K.D. and B.O.M.B.D. teamed up with Brass Eye to raise awareness of the dangers of Cake.

The shared campaign was successful, with figures including Bernard Ingham, Bernard Manning, Noel Edmonds, Bruno Brookes, Rolf Harris, and David Amess MP warning viewers about 'the nightmare of Cake.'
