When someone says something is a "piece of cake", that usually means it was very easy. Here, black I imagine had an easy time winning this game.

However, today is <cg>'s 14th anniversary, and playing black is one of the co-founders of this site, Alberto A Artidiello. Usually, for a special celebration such as an anniversary (or like birthday, wedding, etc.), it's common to have a cake.

Thanks. I didn't know that this was cg's "Birthday". Happy BDay, cg.com!

Thanks for the explanation. I was thinking that maybe <Artidiello> means "cake" in Portuguese or something.
