    In the kitchen
    Good morning! :wave3: And Happy Friday! :cloud9:

    I'm making a lemon meringue pie for our Easter dessert and, while I was looking through my cookbooks for dessert ideas, I came out with our QoTD for today:

    Do you prefer cake or pie? Both? Neither? What kind of cake? What kind of pie? What's your choice?

    With me, it's cake. A white coconut cake, to be specific. The only pie that I really, really like is a good lemon meringue. I'm definitely on Team Cake!

    You could be like my BIL. When my sister and BIL come for dinner, sometimes I'll have both cake and pie. I'll ask my BIL: Do you want a slice of cake or would you prefer pie? His answer is always: YES! :)

    How about you?

    I'm not a big fan of either really. If I had to choose I guess I'd pick Key lime pie. No meringue.

    Definitely cake. I'm not a fruit pie person so I lean more towards chocolate cream, etc if I do have pie.

    Pie - cake is fine but I like more types of pies than cakes.

    Tough choice....would have to say cake but pies run a close second. Love
    French silk pie.

    I used to prefer cake. Now that I eat gluten free, I don't do very much of either.
    I did recently have a craving for pie though. I made a gluten free pie crust and filled it with chocolate, whipped cream on top. That was good. But if I could have something now, gluten free style, it would be icebox fruitcake.

    Pie for me—apple, raspberry, blueberry or rhubarb—with one exception: I might have to pass up a piece of pie for Costco’s tuxedo cake!

    I've really picky about desserts. For pie I like the ones covered in those delicious crumbs. For cake I like crumb cake, pound cake, and wedding cake with the fancy frosting flowers and decorations.

    I rarely eat either, but like both, especially devil's food cake and strawberry rhubarb pie.

    For me, it's pie- especially rhubarb pie, although a tart cherry pie is a close second.

    Team cake! My two favorites are a buttery yellow cake with homemade cream cheese frosting (store bought cream cheese frosting is just GROSS), and strawberry shortcake (but not with the sponge cake most people eat. I like the crumbly cake that has a biscuit-like texture. It soaks up the strawberry juice really well and isn't too sweet).

    OMG, that cake is positively divine! :yummy:

    Definitely cake for me, anything with dark chocolate preferably and, of course, low calories. :wink:

    It's an ungoing discussion (on the internet); some say it's a (cheese)cake, some consider it to be a pie, others call it a tart...
    Cheesecake: Cake, pie or tart? (Editorial)

    Cake, pie or tart… I really don't care; as long as it tastes delicious.

    I don't like pie. I'm not too fussy about cake as long as it's not cheesecake or chiffon type :barf:

    I'm at Costco all the time and I've never seen that tuxedo cake. . .but I'm definitely looking for it next time!

    I suppose I probably like most cakes more than most pies. Most pie crusts aren't so great and I don't like meringue. But I'm not picky, I'll eat them anyway :D (OK, I do scrape off most of the meringue and don't eat bad crust).

    One thing I do that most people think is weird is that I pour some milk on my pie, and dip forkfuls of cake in a glass of milk (because cake falls apart if I pour milk on it). I don't like it dry, what can I say? :lol:

    I like both. Cherry pie with cream or ice cream mmmm, a cream sponge cake mmm, cheesecake mmm. There are lots of yummy stuff of both types.

    However, what I call a real pie is the savoury type such as meat, meat and potato etc. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I like both. For cakes, I like chocolate fudge (my recipe) and carrot cake. For pies, I like French Silk and Key Lime. Whatever it is, it has to have lots of flavor.
