Below is an excerpt from the Grammar Book that i won
Quote:
Other / Another
Often, correctly using the word other can be confusing. The word another and other are not
specific, while the other is specific. If the subject is understood then other can be used as a
pronoun. If the understood noun is a plural count noun then other becomes others. (Note:
other CANNOT be plural if followed by a noun.) Look at the following examples.
This knife is dull. Please give me another.
(an + other + singular noun = any other knife – not specific)
This knife is dull. Please give me the other.
(the other + singular noun = the only other option – specific)
This cake is delicious. Other cakes are delicious also.

Isnt Other in "Other cakes " used as an adjective rather than a pronoun
