I know this is the Korean course but fyi: in German it is called: Nachtisch literally after table

German is nice that way. They are very creative word makers.

Why cant "I want cake for dessert" be accepted :,(

Is there a reason that "For dessert, I want to eat cake." doesn't work here?

No reason. Flag it.

Why is "I would like to eat cake for desert" wrong? Other translations use "I would like" for ~싶어요.

As long as you put dessert instead of desert, then its just another correct answer that hasnt been added
