    It's gym time for all the cakes I had.

    Why does it's make it a sentence? I don't understand. What's the difference?

    "It's" = "It is." "Is" is a verb. A sentence needs a verb.

    Now, in informal situations there may be times when your utterance would stand on its own.

    Q: What are you doing after work?
    A: Gym time for all the cakes I had.

    But it's not a sentence without a verb.
