Cake Baked in a Hat is a comedy routine in which the magician pours ingredients into a hat, usually borrowed, and produces a real cake.

It was a pet effect of Al Baker.[1]

This was a popular effect among magicians as early as 1749. A French magician, Delisle magically cooked an omelette in a hat.[2] A Hyman Saunders produced pancakes during his tour of Jamaica in 1775.[3] Secret Ways of Al Baker by Todd Karr (2003)</ref>
