    Re: bake

    Casiopea - can you explain why you feel "I can bake cakes" is incorrect? To me, it is fine.

    "We need someone to contribute to the school fete. Any volunteers? "
    "I can bake cakes."

    Re: bake

    Correction
    I can bake cakes.

    My brain was still on the verb "like".

    Thank you.
