Easy as Pie

A popular colloquial idiom, “as easy as pie” is used to describe an experience or task as simple and pleasurable even. Often confused, the idiom refers to the act of consuming a pie (“as easy as eating a pie”) rather than making a pie. It is often interchaged with a piece of a cake, which has the same connotation. Other comparisons include the Chinese idiom, “yi ru fan zhang,” which means “very easy,” and translates literally to “as easy as turning one’s hand over.
