    The phrase is "piece of cake."

    Literally, any time you mean a slice (or square or any shape) from a cake.

    As an idiom, it means something is very easy.

    A: "Can you help me change my tire?"
    B: "Sure! It's a piece of cake when you have the right tools."

    A: "How did you do on your test? Do you think you did okay?"
    B: "It was a piece of cake."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    A literal example: "I want a piece of cake".
