"Mince or cake?"
Translation:Mions no cèic?
I have a notion quite a lot of the phrases and sentences in this don't make a lot of sense, possibly actually to make them easier to remember. A "that's silly" reaction may trigger that effect. :) Anyway, mince is indeed ground meat - but we also have "mincemeat", which started life way back in the past as a ground meat product with spices and dried fruits, and over the years has lost the meat content, and is now an entirely sweet concoction of dried fruits, suet, spices, all slow cooked and used in traditional Christmas "mince pies" - so the old name retained while the filling has become sweet. Happy Christmas. :)
