    My teacher asked me if there were 2 pies and 15 people then what should each person get. I said it was an easy problem and she said yeah, it's a piece of cake. Now I'm confused.

    The only reason for eating cake is the icing. Pie has no icing.

    ==> Cake is superior. QED.

    Cake is also multifunctional: If you are on a diet, just scrape the icing off the cake and eat it that way.

    Of course, you can't do math with cake.

    When you gorge yourself on cake, "You have a problem".

    When you gorge yourself on pie, "Why didn't you save me a piece!"

    BUT; if you scrape the icing off a cake, you're left with something not so cakey or piey or good.


    Yes: I said "Piey".

    OP should have made a poll.

    Cake is better than Pi.

    cake is spongy and bready.

    Pie is super tasty.

    Pie is definitely better! I have half a pie left over and I think I am going to eat all of it by myself! :biggrin: :biggrin: I feel nothing for cake. The cake in itself is uneventful to eat, so that's probably why they cover it in the overly sugary icing :yuck:

    Bah, the cakey bit is full of cakey goodness, and the icing is just icing on the cake!

    My wife makes pies to die for. No cake can compare. Fall and winter get-togethers mean she's making raspberry/rhubarb or strawberry/rhubarb pie, pumpkin pie (using only REAL pumpkins), apple pie, peach pie... There's no frosting on the pies, but serve them warm with French vanilla ice cream - Heaven!!

    BTW, the berries and fruit are all fresh-frozen and come from our property or our neighbor's place, so the fillings are very flavorful - not like the stuff from the store. Our two chest freezers are wonderful!
