cake as an uncountable noun

    Is it possible to use 'cake' as an uncountable noun without a quantifier?

    E.g. Will you have chocolate cake or apple pie?

    Is the phrase correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can indeed. There is no need for "some".
    To make them countable, you can say "a piece of XXX cake/pie".
