Kek literally translates to lol on World of Warcraft. When someone from the Horde side types lol in /say, members of the alliance side see kek instead. Not specific to Orcs.
Human Paladin: Dude, that Orc totally just pwned you.
Orc: Kek.
Human: Dude, now he's laughing at you. Kick his ass.

Turkish for simple, basic cake, just baked dough with nothing on it. For reasons unknown to me, Turkish for cake is pasta.
She promised a pasta but served us just a kek.

Refer to keke.
This did NOT originate in WoW, it is simply a shorter keke, similar to heh vs hehe.

It DOES translate from orcish to common as lol in WoW, this just doesn't happen to be the origin of the laugh. Whether or not this translation is intentional is beyond me.
Orc says kek
Ally sees lol
WoW players who are complete newbs to gaming think this is how kek started being used as a term to show laughing.
