* Played with in the WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon ''WesternAnimation/BigHouseBunny''. Prison guard Yosemite Sam is mistakenly locked inside a jail cell and Bugs, disguised as a crooked guard, hands him what appears to be a loaf of bread. It turns out to be a bread-shaped "Ajax Escape Kit", which zips open and contains digging tools and a map.

* In an odd case of the cake itself being a tool, during WorldWarTwo the OSS developed a type of plastique that could be disguised as cake. It was even edible. Particularly devious LaResistance operatives would bake the wiring into the bread and leave it on a target's doorstep, [[ParanoiaFuel so that it would be set off when a metal knife cut into it.]] But really, [[Webcomic/PennyArcade why would you eat a found cake]]?

** One particularly amusing variation has the ''cake itself'' be the tool. By now, the guards have gotten GenreSavvy to the Beagles using the trope and have an X-Ray machine installed. Surprisingly, it contains nothing but actual cake. However, the cake gives Burger Beagle a case of the hiccups so bad his brothers are able to ''[[EquippableAlly use him as a jackhammer]]'' to dig out.

* Spoofed in a ''Lupo Alberto'' story, where the main character was arrested due [[CriminalDoppelganger him looking like a fearsome criminal]] and the criminal's accomplices, not knowing their boss is still out, send him a cake hidden inside a file and a cake hidden inside a bigger cake ([[StupidCrooks they're enormous idiots]]). They were about to send him a file hidden inside a bigger file when their boss tracked them down.
