A Piece of Cake

Table of Contents


Something that is very easy to do or accomplish.


  • “Don’t worry about that math test, it’s going to be a piece of cake. You’ve studied hard and know the material inside and out.”


The origin of the phrase “a piece of cake” is not entirely clear. One theory suggests that it may have originated from the practice of giving out cake as a prize for winning a competition. Another theory suggests that it may have come from the British Royal Air Force during World War II, where pilots who had completed their missions with ease would describe them as “a piece of cake.” Regardless of its origin, the phrase has been used since the early 20th century to describe something that is easy to do.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other idioms you’d like me to explain.
