Creo que estaba ausente cuando enseñó esto. Cómo se traduzca

If I had known you were coming, I would have baked a cake.

Gracias en adelante.

Strictly speaking, they are two different ways to form the past subjunctive of the verb haber. You can see more here (or use the Search Forum box):

In a Spanish class, another alternative you may have learned:

. . . habría preparado una torta

Si hubiera/hubiese sabido que venías, hubiese preparado una torta.
