« Quand le gâteau sera cuit, tu le sortiras », ça veut dire :

  1. au moment où (as/when) le gâteau cuit


  1. une fois que (once) le gâteau cuira ?

Je ne pense pas que ça soit 1. car le temps n’est pas le même.

    "Quand le gateau sera cuit, tu le sortiras" = "Une fois que le gateau sera cuit, tu le sortiras".

1 Answer 1


Both suggestions are wrong.

1 means "While the cake is being cooked" (While the cake cooks)

2 means "Once the cake starts being cooked", which is not very different.

The actual meaning would be something like:

When the cake is cooked (i.e. once the cooking is completed).
