    I mean, frosting is delicious. I love frosting. The problem is the cake pales in comparison. I just want it to get out of the way and deliver the frosting to my mouth. Which means, to me, that it is inferior--I don't like it except as a transport mechanism. Pie, I like the whole thing. Ergo, pie is better.

    clearly, you have never had a cook cake in your lief. i feel for you, bro.

    as well, you know who else loves only the frosting? 5 year old children. when your palate matures, you will being to see the truth.

    "cheesey cream pie" just has a nasty ring to it. Hence cheesecake.

    in reality, a cheesecake is more of a custard but made with cream cheese. The inclusion of a crust lends itself more to pie than cake (kind of like why pumpkin pie is not called pumpkin cake)

    Pie is more reliable -- have you ever had a bad pie? -- but is not capable of transcendant greatness like cake. So my answer depends on how good the cake is.

    Pie is only more reliable if you grade on the most generous curve ever conceived. Most pie is crappy. Soggy, tasteless crust. Overly sweet filling. Ugh, that shit is foul.

    And most cake is what? Tasteless and dry cake from a box recipe and disgusting sweet duncan hines icing from a plastic container. Plus everybody is putting shitty things on top of the cake, like outdated sprinkles and pictures of whichever asshole is having the birthday.

    No thanks.



    Pie, on the other hand, still has it's dignity.

    1. some here would very much like that name. LIKE YOU! no hate

    2. truly awesome cheesecake is made with more than just cream cheese and might have awesome nuts or berries (maybe cheesy cream pie is a good name after all) in it too.

    3. the crust should be only on the bottom, so not pie-like at all. unlike pumpkin pie that has crust on the sides too.

    basically, i think cheesecake is its own thing, and is far superior to either cake or pie. thus i must conclude poal phail, and this poal is invalid.

    i would say to start a new thread, but that is not necessary. cheesecake is the winner.


    re: potential for cake or pie fail - there are tons of horrible pies and cakes out there. both need to be done properly or they are tuuurrrrrble.

    I can't reason with you, Stitchy. You're too far gone.

    Also: Cheesecake is neither cake nor good.

    Its non-cakeness is self-evident, but my assessment of its desirability does, indeed, reflect my taste in food.
