Cake vs. Pie

The epic battle is in full swing…

Cake vs. Pie!

Cake vs. Pie

While the guys at my work are into March Madness, the girls of our office (plus two guys) have filled out brackets for the epic Cake vs. Pie competition, as seen on


I have ICE CREAM CAKE going all the way!

My Bracket

Who doesn’t love creamy ice cream and cake in one? It’s the best of both worlds.

Which do you prefer? Cake or pie?

I’m a cake girl, without a doubt (unless French Silk pie is in the running, in which case I may be swayed).


With all this cake and pie talk, I was grateful for a super-sweet breakfast.

Three cheers for brownie batter hot cereal!

Pre-Cooked Brownie Batter Hot Cereal

Mmm, Chocolate!

Friday's Breakfast

I also munched on a handful of Emerald cocoa roast almonds.

Cocoa Roast Almonds

Chocolate for breakfast = A very good thing.


Today’s workout was good! I took a BodyPump class and followed it up with 10 minutes of incline walking and 10 minutes on the elliptical.

Sadie enjoyed a nice, long walk afterward too.

I snapped a picture of my lil’ girl this morning and laughed because she looks like she’s a little tripod dog with three legs. 🙂

My Little Tripod

I have a soft spot in my heart for three-legged dogs. I think they’re adorable, though I would never wish that on any dog. I love how even with three legs, dogs are still the happiest creatures in the world!

  1. LOL love that bracket! I have never heard of doing that. I’d vote for cheesecae!

  2. I’d vote for pumpkin or pecan pie. I’m not a huge cake fan.

    As for tripods, we have one named Tucker and he is the best. So cute and so happy! He actually keeps up with our other four-legged pup no problem.

  3. Ice cream cake is my favorite kind of cake, hands down,.

  4. I HATE ice cream cake. So weird, I know. Everyone else I know loves it. But I LOVE me some chocolate mud pie…mmm…fudge.

  5. I usually go with cake…although I love pie too 🙂

  6. Hmm thats a tough one. I love both cakes and pies that have fruit/jam in them. So carrot cake > chocolate cream pie, but apple pie > angel food cake. That would be a difficult bracket for me to fill!

    • it took A LOT longer than it should have! 🙂 it was hard to abandon your favorites & pick what you think the “masses” will like!

  7. Pie all the way! A warm piece of apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream…perfection!

  8. I’m a total pie girl!

  9. ice cream all the way! i can leave the cake or pie!

  10. Cake – all the way!! Especially homeade peanut butter sheet cake…’s delicious!

    • excuuuuuse me!? what is this little deliciousness i’ve never heard of!?!?

        melt: 1 stick butter or margarine
        1 cup water
        4 tablespoons peanut butter
        bring to a boil

        in large bowl: 2 c flour
        2 c sugar
        add melted ingredients & beat
        add: 2 eggs
        1 tsp baking soda
        1/3 c milk
        bake in greased & floured sheet cake pan (I use the large foil throw away ones) 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.

        melt: 1 stick butter or margarine
        6 tablespoons milk
        4 tablespoons peanut butter
        bring to a boil – then add:
        1 pound powdered sugar
        1 tsp vanilla
        mix until blended – frost cake while still warm. Cool before devouring!!! I can’t say its healthy but it sure is delicious……

  11. I LOVE cake…and emerald nuts cocoa almonds, great choice! Have a great day!

  12. OMG, I want to do that bracket!!! It depends on what cakes/pies are battling it out…I’m not a fan of plain cake, but throw some delish filling/mousse/frosting in there and it’s a tough call. Happy Friday!!

  13. I might have to go with cheesecake! Of course you had to post this didn’t you!! Now I feel like I neeeeed some delicious baked goods!

  14. CAKE all the way!!! If I’m going to consume the calories, I’d choose cake over pie any day!

    Now, the tough part is which kind of cake. It’s a close tie between birthday cake and angel food cake. YUMMM! 🙂

  15. Ice cream cake all the way!!! I love how you havea bracket, hahahaha…awesome 😀

    That is an adorable picture of Sadie!
