n., a dessert and party favor, typically a cake or a muffin, in which small trinkets have been baked. In one variation, the prizes are all small coins. In another, the prizes are various things, each with some attached meaning for divination. The trinket cake is common at birthdays and festivals.

My favorite trinket cake experience came at a party thrown by an ex. My trinket's fortune was that I would have many children. I told my ex that if I did, then as it was her trinket cake, it would be her fault. I made the trinket (a bead shaped like a small doll) into an earring and still have and wear it on occasion.
