Food Cake or pie?

Recommended Posts

Another tough one. I think pie's the go-to snack for me. I love a good cake, but it's something I'd only pick up if I'm celebrating something. Plus, I'm just a bigger fan of pie filling and crust overall.

My favorites to order at the diner: Pumpkin, cheesecake, apple (plain or dutch), banana cream, lemon cream, and chocolate cream.

And just in case anybody asks, NO, cheesecake is not cake. It should be obvious, but I actually know people who refuse to try it because they really believe it's just cheese added to a cake. WTF?

Have to go with Cake. I have yet to have a pie that's beaten some of my birthday cakes!

I'll concede to this however there needs to be a clear distinction between pies then. Savory and Sweet, with another division in Sweet to address the huge differences between fruit and custard based pies. cheesecake falling into the latter.

Among pies, apple is my favorite. We have our own recipe. However I can't shake off the attachment I have to Devil's Food Cake. Sometimes it doesn't turn out right, but when it does it's better than anything else so cake wins out here.

Pie. My favorite is coconut cream. Or raisin cream. Not a big fan of lemon, but I will eat it because it's pie.

Pie is... *deep breath* I love pie. Usually if I eat any cake I kinda regret it, it's too rich for me

Gonna go with pie. There are so many kinds I like.

I like some cakes, but not so much on the icing.

Pie is better for an "old man" like myself.  Cake is too sweet for me these days, at some point in my life cake became way too much sugar for me in one sitting and I'm the guy that'll eat a whole pack of oreos in one day!!  I think if people didn't put so much frosting on it, it would be fine...  I got a birthday cake for myself this year and I kinda regret it, it was too much for me, the lady that made it put at least a half-inch worth of frosting on there to "make it look even".  Tried scraping as much frosting off as I could but it was still too much!!

Cake wins for me. There really is no contest here. Cake with whipped frosting is heavenly. My stomach doesn't agree with it, so I don't eat it much, but when I do it is a delight! The only pie I really like is custard pie and I haven't been able to have that since I was a child. I generally don't care for pie. It's just 'okay' in taste and I don't care for the crust at all.

It's a close call, but I'm going to go with pie. I like a nice chocolate silk pie or a New York cheesecake with raspberries and whipped cream.

I like both, but I'll have to go for pie. Mainly because cake can have that hard sugary frosting that is just gross. I like the more whippy cream frosting that's softer and less sweet. But pie, oh man, pie has all the best flavours of cake, and more. The fruit in pie is a lot fresher and juicier. It's a whole lot more satisfying to bite into an actual strawberry pie, than to have strawberry cake flavoured cake. Plus, pie has more range. Pumpkin and Pecan are two of my favourite types of pie.

This is a hard one... I like both. I'll choose pie because I really like fruit.

I prefer pie. Cake is too sweet. Also this question reminds me of the Eddie Izzard tea and cake or death bit.

I would say that pie is better, I can't handle sweet foods, so pie is the winner for me.
