The successful attempt took just 3 minutes 51 seconds, but contrary to what the title would suggest, it was no piece of cake!
Lots of forethought went into the attempt to ensure it went efficiently, resulting in a quick time. Stampy placed all the elements out methodically and used pits to spawn his skeletons and cow into to stop them moving during the attempt.
“Spawning them in so they're just roaming around the land would not be a very fast idea… because then I'll be trying to make 10 cakes while a skeleton is running around and shooting me!” he explained.
