I think "They are in the kitchen making cake." should be accepted. Duolingo insists that I add the article "a" in front of "cake".

my sentiments exactly. who says that 做蛋糕 is only referring to one cake being made? for all we know it's talking about cake in general.

This is the exact same answer I gave as well :( still marked wrong.
I put "They make a cake in the kitchen." I guess this should be correct.
Making a cake should require the Chinese to include 一个蛋糕
I translated it as "They are baking a cake in the kitchen."
Could cake be plural here? Wondering if "They are in the kutchen making cakes" could be correct or not
Shouldn't they be 'baking' a cake. Although I guess 'making' a cake is fine too
I agree. Cakes are baked, not made, unless it is a no-bake cake, which is the exception not the norm.
The listening exercise should also accept 她们. Please upvote https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/29456371 for visibility if you agree.
Couldn't this also be "They make cakes in the kitchen"? I suggested it already.
Making cake should be accepted.. ❤❤❤❤❤❤!
I said "They are in the kitchen making cake".
