    Cool shortcake

    Hi,

    Can shortcake mean something more than a kind of cake?

    It's sometimes used as a nickname or term of endearment for a person that is young or not too tall. On Happy Days, Fonzie always lovingly referred to Joanie as "Shortcake."

    Thank you. There is no use of 'shortcake' as a verb, is there?

    None that I am familiar with. "Shortchange" is a verb, if that's any help (means to give a person less than he is entitled to).
