I agree, but neither pie nor cake need be overly sweet.

That is true but I find this to often be the case. For some reason, as an example, many folks are fine with a sugar concentration in icing big enough to cause cellular lysis but freak out at the thought of adding some butter to it.

Mmmmmmm. Butter.

So that we might return to our true subject, I have taken the liberty of establishing a plebiscite on this tangential distraction: http://www.styleforum.net/t/348908/pie-or-cake-a-poll/0_50

Cake is winning...

Cake is for plebes.

Thanks! Now the next question: WTF is wrong with you?

You no like custard pies? Cream pies?
post #1827 of 7385
A pie is a substandard delivery device for delicious custard.

Also, shouldn't the cronut be a croinut? What kind of uncultured swine is coming up with these portmanteaux?

What's with all this crazy crazy.gif talk? confused.gif Pie over cake, yes. And the pies I was talking about are not on the 'overly sweet dessert' menu. Apples and oranges, folks. They are masterly renditions that are not comparable to regular pies. People taste these and eagerly renounce their pie-hating ways. Those suffering from pie ambivalence knock themselves over in a desperate rush to go over to the pie-side.

The cronut looks interesting. I can tell you that Dominique Ansel' stuff is the real deal

* edit: he is a reason that New York doesn't suck
