Yeah, kakku, täytekakku, kuivakakku, piirakka, leivos, even keksi (småkage).

If it is sweet and baked, it is en kage på dansk.

This might be a stupid question but why is the "the cake" instead of just "cake"?

Is the -en sound at the end of drengen and kagen meant to be almost completely inaudible at the end of the word? Could a more experienced Danish speaker please explain.

Thank you this helped clear up a lot. the -en at the end of words such as drengen and kagen are meant to be audible. Duolingo should get this fixed.
