Minecraft shares many similarities with our real-life world. There are mountains, caves, oceans, deserts, and more. Players can also craft some common, everyday items like books, paper, and sugar.
Players can craft sugar using sugarcane in Minecraft by placing sugarcane in a crafting grid to make one sugar. Sugarcane is a common vegetation usually found near river biomes. Check out some of the best uses of sugar in Minecraft.
Many veteran players may already know about them, but beginners probably have no idea about the uses of sugar.

#1 - Cake
Players can make a cake using three buckets of milk, three wheat, two sugar, and one egg. This cake can be placed as a block and eaten by right-clicking on it. One cake has seven slices. Eating one piece will restore a single hunger point.
When a slice is eaten, the cake's size gets smaller. Using this mechanism, players can make tall, straight stairs in Minecraft. Even though it won't be eye-pleasing, players can still use the cake stairs to get to higher levels faster.
