Asking that question reminds me of Hamlet – To be, or not to be, that is the question. Cake, or pie, that is the question.
Cake is the clever baker’s creation that can be enjoyed in numerous settings. From a farewell morning tea at work, to birthday celebrations, a picnic in the park, or just gossiping over coffee with friends – a good slice of cake works every time.
But a pie? Well they fall into a category all of their own. I associate pies with family gatherings and dinner parties around the dining room table. If its dessert, the pie will usually come with icecream, custard or cream. And unlike cake, your slice of pie will need at least a fork or spoon.
But my answer… can I have both?
