So can hamsters eat cake at all?
It is not the best food for hamsters to eat.
It is far too sweet for them and will make them sick if they eat too much of it.
Its sugary content is not good for them though and there are much better foods to feed to them.
However, if they were to nibble a little sponge then they would be fine but nothing too much.
