cake is tarku (revisited)

tarku = cake (noun) (some things Google found for "tarku": an uncommon term; user names; a rare last name; a rare usually masculine first name; name of a Hittite pagan God; gaming character names; means spindle in Sanskrit (transliterated); name of places in Nepal, India and Iran)

Word derivation for "cake"
Basque = tarta, Finnish = kakku
Miresua = tarku

My previous Miresua conlang word for cake was kartu. I changed this word because kartu would have been too similar to my next word.

In Chapter 1 of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice finds "very small cake, on which the words 'EAT ME' were beautifully marked in currants".
