WOW! this is a very tough choice to make. There are so many great cakes by so many great bakers. For example the Red Velvet, Carrot, Cheese cake, or could that be considered a pie? The list could go on and on. What about the pie. I wrote a poem about pies, and I have to tell you that I believe if given a choice I am taking the pie almost every time. A nice golden flaky crust filled with berries, peaches, apples, cherries, strawberry rhubarb, …….. Thanks Plinky there goes my diet (ha ha). Let us not forget the cream pies…..chocolate, lemon meringue, banana…listing these you can see why I would put cheese cake in the same classification. maybe I can explain it with the following:
Pies, Pies, Pies
Apple, berry, pumpkin, would be oh so nice,
peach, cherry, or strawberry rhubarb I’ll have a slice.
Eat it cold or eat it hot, either way is sure to please,
How about alamode, with the ice cream do not tease.
Let us not forget the cream ones surely to entice,
Banana, chocolate, lemon, will more than suffice.
Oh yes there is also, key lime, and cream cheese,
Meringue or whipped cream? Gosh, golly, geez!
Cookies are yummy and cakes oh so nice,
However, nothing beats pie whole or by the slice!
