Only if you think that The Fly had a happy ending.
Can't we all just get along?
The correct answer is pies inside cakes.
The correct answer is le piecake:
Edit: Also, having been there for a few hours, I can confirm that, in France, they do indeed call it le piecake.
I really like cake.
A lot more than pie.
With cake, you get this light, airy feeling the whole time you're eating it, and almost anything can be a cake flavor. Even pie can be a cake flavor.
But pie is...it's not as airy.
I like my calories to not FEEL like I'm eating them.
So, you like cake because it feels like eating nothing. Once again, pie wins.
Because it was clogging up the other threads.
Er didn't we have one of these already, once upon a time?
ETA: Oh here it is. Thank fuck, for a moment there I was seriously concerned I'd have to alter my decision for this particular life again. That was tense, whew. By which I mean, nearly had an existential crisis there because I doubted my memories a bit.
I am neutral on both the traditional forms of cake and pie, so my vote depends entirely on whether cheesecake is a cake or a pie.
ETA: The other thread said pie, so pie I shall vote for, because cheesecake is a sacred food.
Well, whoop de shit.
Cheesecake is gross, there I said it.
That was 6 months ago, before the election. Things change, ya know.
THIS DOES NOT CHANGE.
(fuckin' cake eaters)
PIE IS WINNING THIS IS HOW THINGS SHOULD BE
It depends on which one I made. Because I am just that fucking good.
THIS IMITATOR DOES NOT IMPRESS ME. I DEMAND A SACRIFICE OF DELICIOUS PIE AS RECOMPENSE.
The tart is unimpressed by the competition.
And the best pie is either chicken and mushroom or steak and steak.
Apple pie is the only pie I like, and it's not enough to compete with all the cakes I enjoy even more. So cake wins.
I present to you the turducken of pastries. This is a cheesecake, sandwiched between two apple pies, enveloped by spice cake, and glazed. Yes, I ate a slice, and yes, it was fucking delicious.
That picture is goddamn terrifying.
I see your Frankenstein monstrosity and raise it by...
(Three pies, three cakes, one frosting to bridge them all.)
One Frosting to bring them all and in the Darkness bind them.
Once upon a time, I might have said pie was the best.
There's pumpkin, sweet potato, apple, blueberry, cherry, chocolate mousse, cheesecake, etc pies. All of them so unbelievable delicious with the only downside was at times an unappealing crust.
Cake didn't have a lot going for it. If I was looking for chocolately goodness I could get a chocolate bar or some brownies. I dislike most store bought cakes and as for frosting...fuck that noise.
But then...whilst taking a casual stroll through odd gourmand alleyways of the Internet, I made the discovery of a lifetime.
I found something that gave my life meaning.
That something was called Mexican Chocolate Cake.
I was dubious at first. What kind of cake recipe doesn't have eggs? I also see Balsamic vinegar. Was that some kind of grievous typo or-
What the hell?
I was curious though. Several midnights dreary I pondered until I felt weak and weary over this quaint and curious recipe of forgotten lore. But, instead of napping, I suddenly took to baking. Baking something I had never baked before. Tis some cake, I thought, and nothing more. And then I opened wide the oven door.
Quoth the mushroom, 'Hey this cake smells pretty good!'
But smells do not tell the whole story, my dears. No. It all boils down to taste and texture. How does this cake with it's strange ingredients stand up to the wonders of pie? The texture was perfectly moist. The chocolate meltingly bittersweet...
After a moment, the cake burned.
My senses alighted, as if that cayenne fire was absorbed into my veins. I felt alive and I there was a certain satisfaction in biting into a dessert that could bite back.
And that was how Rot became addicted to cayenne pepper.
Or you could have a pepper pie. 5 inches across, golden flaky pastry, cubed steak and gravy inside, topped with pepper.
Damn it I'm hungry now.
It sounds crazy to fill a pie with tofu, I know, I but it's goddamn delicious. I mean just look at it. Alton wouldn't lie to you.
We should have a separate forum for cake-lovers because seriously what is wrong with you people. GO BACK TO CAKEISTAN
Man, if Cakeistan existed I would move there and become the head cleric.
I used to just flat out say cake, but I've since evolved on the issue and now feel it's just a dumb question. The majority of cakes are desserts, but there are lots of pies that aren't desserts. I'm not interested in fruit pies at all, but I like a nice shepherd's pie, a chicken pot pie, a meat pie. There's nothing equivalent for cake. This isn't even comparing apples and oranges. It's comparing apples and vegetables.
So unless there is a specification that the question only applies to dessert options, I declare it null and call for a vote of no confidence in the asker.
We're at war, pick a side.
Anyway, https://www.google.com/search?q=savoury cake
Every one of those looks like either something my grandmother would have made when she realized early in the baking process that she had no sugar or chocolate but boy oh boy did she have a lot of parsnips and turnips or else something that a homeless teenager on a busy Portland street would try to shove into your hand while begging for some weed money. I'm certain that there is an audience for ginger prune date cake. That audience is monsters.
NO BLOOD FOR PIES! XPAV LIED, CAKES DIED!
Look, you cakeholes, you can make as many threads as you want, but pie is always gonna win. You guys are like Quebec separatists.
You're going to have to point me to some of these threads started by 'cakeholes'.
Man. You pie people. Like Fox News. Ranting and raving about a problem you just made up.
I had to transport this reply here so it was in its proper home.
So far so good. I always liked you,
What the fuck? How can you start out so right and then end up so goddamn wrong?
There are absolutely no rules about pie needing sides. Many of my favorite key lime pies use graham cracker crusts with no sides. Requiring sides on a crust is ludicrous.
Additioanlly, custard pie is a subset of the larger pie set. To wit:
So are you positing that because cheesecake is a custard pie, it is not a pie? Then you would also be ruling out pumpkin, sweet potato, CHESS PIE, are you some sort of heathen, man???
これでもくらえ、in your pipe and smoke it!
TART IS A PIE. JESUS, WE'VE ALREADY BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD.
Cake is worse than herpes.
Hey, man, don't get mad at me because you're into faith-based polling. The numbers are on the side of God, America, the baby Jesus and pie.
I could feel my arteries hardening just looking at it. I felt them!
