From the people who brought you March Madness: Pie Vs. Cake (quick update: Apple Pie is getting ready to go up against Pumpkin Pie. For the love of God, vote for Apple!), comes some great scientific proof that pie is superior to cake.
This infographic is really all you need:
But there are so, so many more instances of proof. I think pie is far superior because it lacks frosting. I know this puts me in the minority, but I’m not typically a frosting fan. I usually find it waaaay too sickeningly sweet. I love me some Magnolia Bakery cupcakes, but I usually have to knock half the frosting off before I can eat it. I love cake, I’m not crazy about frosting and sadly, the two are usually found stuck to one another.
Someone at work was passing around a bracket today for the NCAA stuff, which I know nothing about. I played the football pool once and got in on the Superbowl pool, but lost both times. I generally dislike throwing my money away on stuff of which I have no knowledge (I was picking my football teams based on which mascot would be triumphant in a battle. Steelers Vs. Bears? The bear’s gonna win.)
But a bracket based on baked goods? Now that I can get behind! This is an amazing idea. The Cake Conference vs. the Pie Conference. Readers vote every day to determine the winner.
My final four are Birthday Cake, Red Velvet Cake, Apple Pie and Cheesecake, with #1 Seeded Apple Pie to take the crown!
