Mint cake is a food item that, when eaten, will restore a player's run energy to 100%. Mint cakes restore more energy per consumption than any other item. However, although super energy potions only restore 40% energy per consumption, up to four doses of super energy potion can be fit into one vial, giving a super energy potion (4) 160% of run energy restoration versus the 100% of a mint cake. However, this requires several clicks, so the mint cake is more useful for instant run energy restoration.

A mint cake can be obtained as a possible reward from the Gnome Restaurant minigame and can also be obtained by exchanging Tangled Toad Legs with Longramble during or after The Path of Glouphrie quest. This exchange can only be made once.

Before 1 February 2010, mint cakes were very rare as they could be obtained from the Gnome Restaurant only very rarely. However, on 1 February 2010 the chance of getting a mint cake reward from the Gnome Restaurant minigame was increased considerably. Furthermore, from the Gnome Restaurant, they are now received in amounts ranging from 8-10 rather than individually.

For several months preceding this update on 1 February 2010, mint cakes had been bought out in the Grand Exchange. They began to be perceived as a very valuable item, and they were traded at a "street" price of several million coins. Mint cakes were used to buy other items with "street prices" much higher than the Grand Exchange price, such as Easter Eggs and Pumpkins, or to sell items with much lower "street" prices than the Grand Exchange prices. However, after 1 February 2010, mint cakes no longer were perceived as being as valuable, and they even started crashing in the Grand Exchange.
