I think that "I Ate" is past tense of the verb to eat.

Hi, can you explain why "I ate all the cakes" is not a correct translation of 

"Elle a mangé tout le gâteau!"Merci

Bonjour Patricia,

"I ate all the cakes" would translate as j'ai mangé tous les gâteaux whereas elle a mangé tout le gâteau would translate as "she ate all the cake" or "she has eaten all the cake".

Bonne journée!
