On the 360 Orange Box verison of portal, you can acces the cake room by following the instructions in this video:

I'm not entirely sure it works with the XBLA version, though.

It's a cheat. You can open up the console (if enabled in options) by pressing the ~ button, <----- next to number 1 key.
then type sv_cheats 1
then type no clip (or no clip 1)

This lets you fly around anywhere (you can still die though), and you just explore until you find the cake room!

To get it without cheats you can watch this video and if you follow the steps exactly you'll reach the cake room, but be warned it's pretty tricky.

1. Open up the console

2. type in "sv_cheats 1"  (to disable this, type in "sv_cheats 0")

3. type "noclip 1" (to disable, type "noclip 0")

4. Fly around until you find a long corridor w/ pipes that disappears in the distance. Fly down it until you seen a turn and take it. This should land you in the cake room.

Also, if you turn off noclip in the cake room and wander around, you can find a teleport thingy that takes you up to the top. At least, when I played portal a few years ago you could do this. I don't know whether or not they changed it when they edited the ending.

Use this video if you are on the xbox.


Or just turn on no-clip if you are on pc.

I think all the noclip answers are wrong, noclip doesn't work like 'noclip 1' and 'no clip'

Actually, you have to open up the console, either by pressing the tilde key or launching Portal with the launch option '-console' (set this in Steam), then when you are in game , type sv_cheats 1 and afterwards simply noclip

Also, it is probably not in all of the maps, so you might have to try this in different parts of the game. Your best bet is trying this right before the GLaDOS boss fight.

While you SHOULDN'T be able to get there by default - you can exploit some bugs in the game which let you get there, but they might have been patched. Another way to get there would probably be to use a cheat. You can open the console, type in SV_CHEATS 1 and press enter. After that, enter NOCLIP and you should be able to fly through the map. Enter NOCLIP again to walk normally. There :)

You can only do it with cheat codes.
