Weekend Assignment #331: Cake v Pie ( Scalzi Flashback)

Weekend Assignment #331: Cake V. Pie (A Scalzi Flashback) NOW CLOSED!

Which is better -- cake or pie? Explain your reasoning. Will you choose the moist sponginess and frosting-topped goodness of cake? Or will you side with those flaky crust-adoring, fruit-filling fanatics of the pie nation? You must choose one -- and only one! No trying to suggest that Boston Creme Pie is really kind of like a cake, or how cheesecake is actually not unlike a pie. Take a stand! Be true to your pastry orientation!

Extra Credit: Having chosen cake or pie, now admit your favorite variety of the dessert you did not choose. So if you chose cake, tell us your favorite pie. Prefer pie? Tell us your favorite cake. - J.S.

  6. OH!! I just discovered this blog! I love this assignment but it appears I am late! Can I participate with a late slip that excuses my tardiness? The teacher's in high school would let me participate only after getting a slip....LOL!

    Can't wait to see the next assignment!
