I just had some pie, in fact.

There is, however, only one pie, and that is cherry pie.  Ya'll weirdos and your soft, foamy interior pies can go hang.

Wait, the "other" category is going to screw up the results between cake and pie!

Cake is much better than pie.
But there are better things than cake (those things are, of course, also much better than pie).

I figured it was only fair to include an option for those heathens who refuse to acknowledge pie and cake as mutual kings of the dessert realm.

It's a hard question to decide - I think I prefer most pies to most cakes. But the best cakes are better than the best pies...

Such a hard question when you come right down to it! On the one hand, I prefer most cakes over most pies. On the other hand, there are the Best Pies. Now I'm really sad that I no longer live in an area that has Baker's Square. Tongue

Cake, hands down. I can't find it on the intranet, but I recall some comedian laying it out thusly: "When you eat cake frosting straight from the can, you feel decadent and indulgent. If you find yourself eating pie filling straight from the can, it's probably because you're trying to survive after a natural disaster."

Now here's a question: cheesecake -- is that cake or actually pie?

I would say cheesecake is actually a pie... cake-cake doesn't involve crusts.

Not so fast, Talia! I suspect you're just saying that because you like pie more, and feel guilty that a cake might surpass it. But it's cheeseCAKE, so I argue it's REALLY CAKE!

Disclosure: I voted for Option 3, because I was swayed by Ann's pie in a cake picture. It would probably kill me, but I'd die happy...

Well, but... isn't that the person eating the pie? Would the pie make those sounds? I mean, it might... perhaps by being eaten it is fulfilling its destiny...

My unholy love for New York style cheesecake (which can only be described in clicks, grunts, rude gestures and pictograms of Velociraptors tearing apart sad faced people made of spongecake) drives me not only to vote for Cake, but to take arms against my filthy pie-loving foes.

Fear my wrath o' people of the pie, for it is terrible and.... wait... is that a cheesecake over there?!

Give me cake!
Pies ultimately are a crust with some sort of filling. Tasty, yes, but not really much you can do with that.

Cake, on the other hand lends itself to so many varieties. A cake is typically a set of sweet baked goods layered on top of each other with various fillings (pie filling, ice cream, etc.) and topped with a frosting of some sort. There are litterally thousands of combinations and kinds. OR, you can just eat the cake batter strait. No need to cook it.

Aged. Scotch? Oh my sweet boozy goodness. If I were to grovel on my knees and beg profusely, do you think I could get that recipe? Because...well...scotch.

I'm late to this conversation, but the subject matter is important enough that I feel the need to weigh in. The thing is, there are pros and cons to both. Pies have fruit, which can be very tasty, but cakes typically have frosting, which is sugar heaven. Then there's cheesecake, which I think someone mentioned already is technically pie.

Really, when it comes to dessert, I prefer anything smothered in caramel, which is more likely with a pie than a cake. Caramel Apple Pie is divine. I nearly went for "Other" because I could eat a bowl full of caramel covered ice cream any day. Which would be a pro for cake since cake is most commonly served with ice cream.

In the end, I voted for pie because Cheesecake and Caramel Apple. I couldn't vote for "other" because the poll is which is better. Even if you don't like either one, you have to have a preference of one over the other. So pie it is.

Wait...

Is cheesecake a pie or a cake?!

I mean...technically, it's a pie, right? You've got a crust, you pour in a filling, you bake (or not)...

BUT...it's called cheeseCAKE

I leave the question to better minds than my own.

I like Cheesecake.
