    I don't think that I will ever forget the cake my friend had bought

    Hi all,

    is this sentence correct ?

    'I don't think that I will ever forget the cake my friend had bought' ?

    Yes, it's correct- the cake was bought at a time in the past- has bought would refer to a cake that is there now.
