Hi,

Hi Mister Micawber,

Thank you so much for your help.

Supposing that there are many cakes on the table. They come in three types. In the last sentence, I mean there is another kind of cake (or cakes) , they are these mooncakes (I point at two mooncakes on the corner of the table). So how should I say in this case?

Another kind of cake. Keep singular (kind) with singular Emotion: cake.
