I’m back after a short holiday. I went to Catalonia. It was lovely but I didn’t see that many cats though. Never mind. I am here to tell you about an idiom I learnt over there. A piece of cake. Yes, it is something that humans love to eat. Cake is quite nice but I still prefer fish. I wonder if they make fish cakes. I’ll try to find out. Anyway, a piece of cake has another meaning. It means something that is easy to do.
A piece of cake explained
This idiom started in the U.S.A. A human called Ogden Nash first used it in his poem Primrose Path.
“Her picture’s in the papers now, And life’s a piece of cake.”
Making a cake is not easy. You always get eggs and flour all over your fur and have to spend hours licking it off. Eating a cake is really easy and quite fun too. So, learning English is a piece of cake!
See you guys soon.
