Strawberry Shortcake (or just Shortcake) is a Food dish which can be seen in many games in the Kirby series. It is Kirby's favorite dessert item, and he will go to absurd lengths to get a slice if he is hungry for it.
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
Kirby: Squeak Squad
In this title, Kirby's entire motivation for adventuring is to get back his shortcake slice, which had been stolen from him by the Squeaks. He does not get it back until after he defeats Dark Nebula, and the Squeaks return it to him as an apology for the trouble they caused.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land
In the intro cut-scene, Kirby is seen running down a path with a shortcake slice over his head, being pursued hotly by King Dedede and Bandana Waddle Dee, presumably because Kirby had stolen it from them. When the Lor Starcutter crashes into Dream Land, Kirby drops the cake in surprise, but looks back toward it later.
