If that's what Losty has to do, none of you are getting equal portions of cake. Apologies Losty.

Mathing is a sin anyway so I'm not offended. I figured we'd find something more fun to do than cutting a cake

Dress up and go out tonight ??
That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens . . . The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. . . . it is wrong and ultimately self defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years and we must do more to stop it.

Mathematically this is a easy and clear solution, but I rejected it because I missed the part about the cake being a square, and thought the original question indicated the dimension, and presumably the aspect ratio, of the cake didn't matter.  This implies the solution had to be elegant enough to not require careful measurements of the aspect ratio of the cake to come up with angles of the cuts.

That's an optical illusion, wtf!
