    do you have some more cake?

    I s it posiible to say
    "Do you have some more cake?" When I make an offer, meaning "would you like some more cake?" or it just means "I want some more cake, so if you have more, give me some."
    I found it in a korean english book and it said it's a way of making an offer.
    What do you think?

    IMO, it should be the latter .

    Correctly it should be "Do have some more cake." It is not a question, and is quite usual.

    The only contexts in which "Do you have some more cake?" would be used are if you are in a cake shop buying cake, or in an eating place and want more cake.
