- 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 believe 'cake' is a mass noun in English.
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. 188.8.131.52 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)
- 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)
