    all vs the whole

    Hello,

    I did a little research before asking these questions. However it's still not clear for me the difference between the two sentences below:

    I ate all the cake.
    I ate the whole cake.

    Is there a difference between them?

    Thank you

    The first one could mean that you ate more or less than one whole cake. You ate all the available cake.
