If you want to relax with a piece of cake and an English video, subscribe to our channel. Hungry yet? Number One – Piece of Cake It just means if something is very, very easy just like eating cake. And every task you undertake becomes a piece of cake Number Two – To Have Your Cake & Eat It Too This idiom means you cannot have it both ways. You can’t have your cake and still eat it. Because if you eat it, it’s gone. You don’t have it anymore. I have it, and I’m eating it. And now oops, it’s gone. And this relates to life by telling you that you cannot have everything that you want. Think of somebody who maybe is working all the time, making a lot of money to get a really nice house. But they can’t enjoy the house because they’re always at work. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Number Three – Icing on the Cake Icing on the cake means something that makes something good even better or something bad even worse. So it really amps up a situation. It felt so great. I just wanted to go in and hit four for four and qualify for World’s one last time. And winning was just icing on the cake. Number Four – To Sugarcoat (something) This means to make something seem better, more pleasant, or more acceptable than it is. To sugarcoat it. You don’t have to sugarcoat it. I get the drill Number Five – Easy as Apple Pie What this means is that something is really, really, really easy. Just like eating pie. So sometimes you see it as “easy as apple pie.” Or sometimes you just see it “easy as pie.” So sometimes it has the apple and sometimes it doesn’t. But it really just means that it’s as easy as eating the pie. Not making it because making it is a little difficult. Number Six – Flat as a Pancake I really like this one. I don’t know why. Probably one of my favorites. So you know pancake…it’s very, very flat. It doesn’t have any ridges or any bumps or anything. It just means that something is very, very flat. Flat as a pancake, huh? Number Seven – Nutty as a Fruitcake Now, I don’t have a fruit cake to show you because I couldn’t find one today. But you have to trust me. They’re very nutty. They have a lot of nuts. But when we say that someone is nutty, it also means that they’re a little crazy. So when someone is nutty as a fruitcake, it can mean anything from just being a little silly to completely crazy. Nutty as a fruitcake. Well, I can save you the trouble. You’re nutty as a fruitcake. Number Eight – That’s the Way the Cookie Crumbles Now this idiom really means “that’s how life works.” I’m Bruce Nolan. And that’s the way the cookie crumbles. Number Nine – To Sell Like Hotcakes This means that something sells very well or is very, very successful. Number Ten – To Have a Sweet Tooth A person has a sweet tooth love’s sweets. They love desserts. Okay. So, for example I have a huge sweet tooth. I love all kinds of desserts and sugar. And my favorite is chocolate. Here you go sonny.
