In brief: Hard to say
There are a few possible things that might cause cake to give you abdominal discomfort.
It could be that you have some lactose intolerance and you're reacting to the milk in the cake. It could also be celiac sprue, in which case you're reacting to the gluten in the cake. If this continues to be a problem, it's worth getting it checked out with your doctor as it could be also due to something else.

Cake is high in fat and that can irritate your stomach, gall bladder and pancreas.
If the pain persists or you develop vomiting, fevers or bloody stools, seek medical advice.
