"And there's any amount of cake for a pudding." - PM CH6

Having just moved into their new quarters, "the Dogs' Home", Dorothea is considering what to do for their first meal on their own.

I am unaware of a PUDDING needing, as one of its ingredients, a CAKE. Now maybe "CAKE" means something other than what one puts icing on, and some candles, then dance around it singing "Happy Birthday". If she has some "CAKE" why not enjoy the cake rather than glop it all up in some sort of a pudding?

Or is this a language problem, where "CAKE" and "PUDDING" mean something different, depending on which side of the Great Pond one resides.

Perhaps here we are frustrated with the faulty translation of one language to another (British into American) leading to misunderstandings.
