From RFC[edit]

Fijian and French sections. H. (talk) 15:19, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

I put an explanation with the French. There is probably a better English word, but I don’t know what it would be. The Fijian seems fine, what sort of gloss are you looking for? —Stephen 06:24, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
I've heard the term "quick bread" (or "quickbread"?) used in English, so that should be a fine definition. I've even seen a local cooking show demonstrate how to make it in the past year. --EncycloPetey 20:38, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

I believe 'cake' is a mass noun in English.[edit]

The plural 'cakes' doesn't exist. Like one can't say 'two coffees', but 'two cups of coffee'.

I've always said 'Two pieces of cake', also 'I'd like some cake' hints at its status as a mass noun. 213.136.9.116 12:37, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

If you bake a chocolate cake and an angelfood cake, you’ll have two cakes. —Stephen 16:15, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
Furthermore you can pluralize coffee as well. --Mglovesfun (talk) 11:16, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
A cake can also be a small thing that you don't cut into slices. You can definitely have several of them. SemperBlotto 11:18, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

trivially easy task[edit]

Not heard of this one, only heard of a piece of cake. --Mglovesfun (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
