Approximately speaking, Cake should give the Best Effort traffic priority over Bulk, until the latter is squashed down to its tin's capacity.  So you may see 5-10Mbps of Bulk and 65-70Mbps of Best Effort, depending on some short-term effects.

This assumes that the Diffserv marking actually reaches Cake, of course.
