    What is a 'cake address'? It isn't clear to me what your question is, or what you're trying to do.

    Does the wallet currently show a balance? It is strange behaviour to have the coins forwarded to another address. Are you sure it is a legitimate wallet? I haven’t heard of cake wallet before.

  • How did you determine "the coins were sent to another address"? Do you mean that the initial transaction got replaced by another transaction? Which address were you trying to get paid to? Is cf547159… the transaction that paid you or the transaction that paid the other address that it went to eventually?

It looks like your money was stolen. Either the app is fake or broken or someone had access to your wallet at sometime (maybe they helped you set it up).

A blockchain explorer shows (most recent at top)

So money was sent in and a second transaction immediately removed it.

Just because both addresses start bc1 doesn't mean they are both Cakewallet addresses. Thats not how addresses work. Apart from the bc1 or 3 prefix, they are visually random.
