I don't think we need worry about things that could have a different meaning to the translation given, as long as they _can_ have the meaning given. This is just one of four relevant (and 11 non-relevant) sentences for 'piece of cake'). It doesn't have to provide everything in one example.

I agree that more context would be nice, although not necessarily longer sentences. I'd like to have the question shown to which this is, presumably, the answer.

Hi Phar,

I added this variant translation as it relates to all the others, and adds a nuance of meaning (even if it exists somewhere else, as a standalone cloud).

PS. Actually, I simply owned it (didn't add it myself).

Yep yep it was just for noting the almost duplicate. I didn't read Paul's comment or the chronology ^^

Anyway, we should merge them I guess.

If you believe a merger would be appropriate, do whatever it takes! ;-)

Annotation:

This one could be considered ambiguous since we only have a pronoun to help us decide what the context might be.

It's a piece of cake.

These aren't ambiguous and "piece of cake" in these sentences has the idiomatic meaning of "easy."
http://tatoeba.org/sentences/show/1987953
It wasn't exactly a piece of cake.
http://tatoeba.org/sentences/show/1062311
Climbing that mountain was a piece of cake.

These aren't ambiguous and "piece of cake" in these sentences has the literal meaning.
http://tatoeba.org/sentences/show/62654
How about another piece of cake?

The last piece of cake was eaten by Tom.
