Duo does not accept my translation : "Ask mummy to make this cake!" Mummy or Mum are British English. Can someone explain or tell Duo that my translation is correct and he should accept it.

When this happens go to the report problem button (if you're using the website) and select "my answer should be accepted."

Why "di"? Is "di fare" =to make. I would have put "a fare" which I'm sure is wrong, but don't know why.

I use mom. Mum is English and I would never use that word. So either all will be accepted or only the Italian version, "mama." Also one should keep in mind that this is Italian thinking, not English or American thinking and sometimes, no oftentimes, things are expressed a bit differently, so cut duolingo a bit of slack please. We could all just say "mother."
