Cake -- the ultimate reward. Seriously, it seems like in games one of the standard rewards you can give someone, other than gold, XP or power stars, is cake. It's sweet, it's lovely, it's something you normally only get at birthdays and weddings [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and it]] TastesLikeDiabetes. The perfect way to shrug off the stresses and worries of saving the world -- cake.
