I'm not sure why, but voting is still open...until 2 pm today, April 6th, to decide the winningest dessert in the land.
Jezebel's Cake versus Pie March Madness match-up contains many irregularities in my opinion, including the two finalists - Red Velvet Cake in the Cake category and Cheesecake in the Pie category.
I understand WHY they have Cheesecake as a pie (it has a crust), but they're just wrong. Cheesecake is neither a pie, nor a cake. It is a dessert. Having said that, I can't allow Red Velvet Cake to win.
If it were just a matter of the icing, then fine, Red Velvet could take the prize, but please don't tell me that a cake with more red food coloring in one cupcake than we were ever meant to consume in a year AND minuscule amounts of cocoa should beat a "pie" with the creaminess of heaven and the taste of paradise.
So reluctantly, I cast my vote(s) for Cheesecake and I hope you will too.
Vote here, early and often.
