Two things. 1) I wouldn't say this in English this way, it is awkward. Even if the big cake was only in one of three known locations and I wanted to know "which place" it was, I would feel more comfortable saying "Where is the big cake?" The exception would be if the cake was inside of one of several smaller containers, then I would say, "In which box/bag/stomach is the big cake? 2) I try not to end my sentences in English with a preposition. Therefore a more grammatically correct sentence (notwithstanding my first point) would be: "In which place is the big cake?" Cheers! -Michael

the problem with that is 어느 is which, not where.
who needs those silly little words like who, what, how, when, why, where, and WHICH in their vocabulary anyways, right?

here ,here, and here are some actual explanations

I don't think the English translation is very natural at all.

If one was at a cake baking contest, one might ask,"In which place is the big cake".

I submitted "Which place is the big cake" as my answer and I got it right. I hope I dont get it marked wrong later. But I do hope I remeber how it should be written.

I put "In which place is the big cake at?" and I got it wrong :(

Never mind, I forgot to add the word "big". That's why I got it wrong.

I can imagine saying this sentence naturally. It certainly wouldn't be commonly used, but I'd say it and English is my native language. I'm from New Zealand.
