A mixture of the expressions "a piece of cake" and "a walk in the park". Used to describe a task that is extremely, ridiculously friggin easy.
"Compared to the math class I had last semester, psych seminar should be a cakewalk."

Situation when no toilet paper (or suitable substitute) is left in or close to the bathroom, resulting in having to walk elsewhere where a wiping material is available. Said walk is known as a "cake walk", as material becomes caked between the butt cheeks.
Oh, dude.. I hid all the toilet paper downstairs, forcing Pete to do a cake walk!

Something easily accomplished or won.
From this bit of slang, "piece of cake" evolved.
Originated in the South, from an elaborate walk performed by African-Americans as part of a contest to win a prize cake.
A modern strutting dance goes by this name.

Happy St. Patties Day!
A traditional game played mostly in the southern United States at fairs and church socials, similar to musical chairs. There are numbers in a circle on the floor and contestants walk along the numbers until the music stops playing. At that time, a number is drawn and the person standing on that number wins a cake and leaves the game.

Used to indicate that something is extremely easy.
Is there going to be a cakewalk at the fair?

That test was a cakewalk.

A cakewalk is a traditional African American form of music and dance which originated among slaves in the US South. A cake, or slices of cake, were offered as prizes for the best dancers — a rare treat during slavery — giving the dance its name.

Cakewalk music is generally more animated than a march, but contains less syncopation than a true rag. The format was designed to accompany a popular high-stepping dance of the day. An evening of cakewalk dance was typically a great social gathering, at which all in attendance wore their finest and brought their canes or umbrellas, which were used as an accessory of the dance. The winner of the dance contest literally was awarded a cake as a prize.
Alabama Dream(1899) by George D. Barnard is a cakewalk.
