    Damn you guys are smart. :p I couldn't figure it out, I had no idea there was such a thing as yellow cake and sponge cake is called something completely different in portuguese.

    Damn my scrolling down! I didn't get a chance to try.

    Although I didn't know there was such a thing as yellow cake either, so probably wouldn't have got it.

    Someone should start a riddle thread :p

    Okay, I've got one. You're trapped in a metal room with no windows. What do you want that you can't buy and need that you can only find in a woman?
    Put the two together and you'll figure out how to get out when you add the thing you never touch but always smell and the thing you can't touch but can see in the dark.

    Hint word: Cloud.

    The answer will surprise and shock you in ways unimaginable.

    LOL, assuming the riddle is more focused on food instead of uranium, yellow cake is just that, yellow and cake.

    When you think of plain old cake, you are usually thinking of yellow cake (or white cake, but they usually taste the same).

    Air?

    I mean, if you're in a metal room with no windows, it's sealed right?

    Therefore you'd die of lack of oxygen?

    Yellow. The rest are objects/nouns, cannot be used as an adjective. Yellow can be an adjective.

    The other end of the rope isn't tied to anything.

    Or it's tied in a small loop around the horizontal part of the paddock fence made from welded tubular steel.

    He's saying it's on a part of the fence that allows the tied end to slide along before it meets a joint, enabling him to eat.

    Yeah. Rice cakes aren't cake. They're more like fat crackers. And many cheese cakes are more like pies.

    cake |kāk|
    noun
    an item of soft, sweet food made from a mixture of flour, shortening, eggs, sugar, and other ingredients, baked and often decorated

    There's no flour in either of the above.

    Does it matter? They're still called "cake" and that's the whole point.
