[STRIKE]excuse me[/STRIKE] When should I use "a peace of cake"?

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."
