- Powdercakes were added into the game as a joke; the developers used it as an inside joke around the office.
- The Powdercake is very similar to the Twinkie, which went temporarily out of production shortly before the update in which the Powdercake was introduced was released. There is a common urban legend claiming that Twinkies do not spoil, which actually is not true. They are stated to have a shelf life of 25 days. However, they will stay intact without rotting and losing too much flavor for over 30 years, but due to oxygen and water vapour diffusion through the plastic wrapper, they will grow more stale and less firm over time.
- Before the full cave release, Powdercakes were originally called Powcakes. This was a reference to Riptidepow, a popular Twitch user who sometimes plays Don't Starve and was mentioned by a developer in an interview during an exclusive first look at caves.
- There is a popular challenge in the Don't Starve community named the "Twinkie challenge" - the goal is to survive long enough to allow a Powdercake to fully rot.
