Card description

4 eggs. 2 cups flour. 10 sticks TNT.



Cakesplosion is for the most part outclassed by instant-kill tricks from other classes such as Rocket Science and Locust Swarm, as it cannot guarantee a kill on the target most of the time. As instant-kill tricks are widely distributed among multiple classes, Cakesplosion will find trouble fitting into most decks.

This trick is very common in premium packs, so be aware before you buy such packs. It's a good idea to recycle this card, as it isn't very good and is easily outmatched by many other fighters. This trick should be used against plant fighters with high strength but low health.

If playing as Electric Boogaloo, it might probably be better to go with Locust Swarm instead, since it only costs 1 more brain, but can kill the target instantly, and doesn't activate any "when hurt" ability (like the damage ability of Mirror-Nut).

Don't use this on a plant with very low health, unless it really has become a threat and must be destroyed as quick as possible.


Just like all other tricks, there isn't a way to counter this the turn it's played. If you're playing as Citron or Grass Knuckles and you're afraid that the zombie hero could use this against a strong plant, use Root Wall on the plant you want to keep alive that turn. Citron can also use Peel Shield, which can protect multiple plants.

Any PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow hero can greatly boost their plants with Grow-Shroom, Fertilize, and other relevant plants, which allows them to survive one hit from Cakesplosion.




  • Its description is most likely the recipe on how to make a Cakesplosion.
    • However, there is one Imp in the Cakesplosion, but the recipe does not list it.
  • On the picture of Professor Brainstorm's Ally Pack and Early To The Party Pack, the Imp in the Cakesplosion is seen with hair. This hair doesn't appear in-game.
