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.

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?

Ive heard of yellow cake. How could you not of? Its in the cake section. :licklips:

I got one.

A horse it tied to a rope that is 4ft long and tied at his neck. However he can EAT some grass that is 8ft away. How is this possible?

His rear hooves are touching it. You never said which body part ;)

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.

Sponge cake. Rice cake. Cheese cake.
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.
