March Madness: Cake vs. Pie

Jezebel is doing a different kind of March Madness… a bracket pitting cake against cake, pie against pie, for an Ultimate Cake vs. Pie-off!

I like March Madness, but I’d much rather pit cake vs. pie.   You can vote daily at — today’s choice?  Red Velvet vs. Coconut in the Cake Conference, and Sweet Potato vs. Key Lime in the Pie Conference  (Apparently, this is the SEC day for cakes and pies).

So, I ask you: cake vs. pie ? And which variety?

  • In the semifinals, I’d take really good birthday cake by a hair over really good wedding cake. On the other side of the bracket, Dutch Apple Crumb over Key Lime by a millimicron. The national championship? I’d totally eat the loser.

  • Every day, Channel 12 hosts a poll on its website. It’s something the newscasts promote, and the poll traditionally relates to content of the day. Sometimes it’s more serious (Who will you vote for: Obama or McCain), other times it’s a bit silly (What’s better weather – really hot or really cold).

    The poll has to happen. every. single. day., and sometimes, the producers struggle to come up with something we can all agree upon.

    The news director always had this favorite, throw away suggestion “What’s better – cake or pie?” He’d mention that at least once a month (though I don’t think they ever have aired it). Someone countered with a “Cheesecake – is it cake or pie?”

    Love it (and I say cheesecake is a pie because it has a crust, and it doesn’t rise like a cake).

  • I don’t think I’ve ever had a good wedding cake, and therefore protest that Pineapple Upside Down Cake was robbed. They usually taste like the spongy monstrosities you get from hospital cafeterias at 4am or out of a plastic wrapper at the gas station after a few too cosmos.
