Well, like.. "The cakeĀ was eaten" for instance. Is there a specific form or do I simply use od and a past participle?

Hm...I can't think of any verb form that wouldn't make it sound like the cake was doing the eating, so I'm going to have to say yes on the od and participle.

Passive forms are done by participle, like most languages. Keep in mind that there are only three tenses for participles - past, present, and future!

Easiest way to tell what's a passive form: add "by zombies" to the end of the sentence. If it makes sense, it's passive!
