I have always wondered about certain expressions people use, like “piece of cake”, and as usual I’m known to overanalyze.
The expression is used to describe something easy and I wonder why the choice of this particular expression. Don’t get me wrong, I love cake, it is delicious and I sometimes overindulge.
That aside, I don’t think having or eating a piece of cake is easy. First of all, you have to cut the cake, then you have to eat it and afterwards worry about all the calories it contains and how much fatter you will get.
So, is a piece of cake easy? I don’t think so but I do agree that it is a really delicious treat.
