    Whatever it is, it makes me hungry.

    There are thin spots and similar that allow for volcanoes and the like away from the very centre. I have also got one continent in particular that definitely falls under the category of "inhospitable chunk of lifeless land", but for another reason.

Over time, these small "Bore Worms" make there way down to the ends of the cake, in which they breed like there forfathers did while packing on the pounds. Hence, the young and tasty Bore Worms become the mighty Rim Wyrms, able to hunt both whale, men, and younger Rim Wyrms.
    I haven't thought about things like that, but I quite like that idea for something like that which uses the planet's cycles for their lifecycles. Whatever it is, it would have to be able to withstand very hot temperatures when young and very cold temperatures when mature, and their eggs would have to withstand first very cold and then very hot temperatures.
    Anyone fancy statting me up a Cakeworld Seaserpent?
