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. :P

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...

I voted pie, because cake leads to unnecessary and not-at-all funny portal references that need to be put to bed.

pies have their false idols as well, see Boston Creme Pie, clearly a cake. 

Doesn't matter, cookies are better than both.

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