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?!

You get some weird images when you type "velociraptor sponge cake" into Google Images.

just came across episode 105 of the Drabblecast and thought it was wonderfully appropriate to this thread. Besides, how can you go wrong with Norm + Mur + Pie + Cake??  ;D

Cake. I have a dark cocoa cake cooling downstairs right now, waiting for me to apply the whipped caramel milk chocolate frosting.

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.

Cake, pie...doesn't really matter to me. Just as long as it's stuffed with charred Smurfs.

there is no yes please.  I don't like pumpkin pie, and don't like the texture of coconut flakes, otherwise i like pretty much all desserts.

Yeah, cheesecake is pie. The cake is a lie!


Doesn't matter, cookies are better than both.

My uncle's black walnut pie made with aged scotch begs to differ.

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, too, would like to bake with scotch in the manner you suggest.

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.

Also because:

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.

Ice Cream!!
Because there is always room for ice cream!!

Pie, because as much as I love Ice Cream (and I do) you never say Ice Cream and Cake, or Ice Cream and Pie.  Ice cream is always the side, Cake and Ice Cream, Pie topped with a scoop of Ice Cream (the best Apple Pie, with a scoop of Cinammon Ice Cream)
