The Whole Cake Island is an island in the New World that is under the control of Big Mom, one of the Yonko, and appears to be her crew's base of operations. Whole Cake Island is the fourth island visited by the Straw Hat Pirates in the New World and the primary setting of the Whole Cake Island Arc.
The island owes its name to its resemblance to frosted cakes, and the buildings appear to be covered in what looks like icing. There are candle-like poles on the top the island that are lit on fire, making the island reminiscent of a birthday cake. The interiors of the buildings also look as if they are made of icing. The sky above the island is covered by unique purple and pink clouds. The island also has a special weather phenomenon of edible cotton candy snow.
Tartes, buildings in the shape of confectionery tarts that house smaller branches of the Big Mom Pirates, are stationed around the perimeter of her territory. These tarts, such as the #28 Tarte, serve as outposts.
As ships approach Whole Cake Island, it sends out warning signals to Den Den Mushi to let travelers know they are in the territory of Charlotte Linlin. The island is heavily protected, as any unauthorized ship that crosses into the territory is shot down.
