A Shortcake is a food item that recovers health in the Castlevania series. Its first appearance was as a food item for Maria in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and later in Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, and is a smaller portion of a Birthday Cake.
In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it gives you 11 HP, which is the smallest amount for any dessert, giving you one less point than a Tart. It gives you one more HP than a Chinese Bun, which gives the lowest food value for any Chinese bun. It is dropped by a Salem Witch.
The Shortcake is also found in Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (in the Anti-Soul Mysteries Lab) and in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (dropped by a Wyvern), and is the only kind of pastry found in these games.
