So, here’s an identity-defining question to explore the next time you’re standing around at a cocktail party, staring intently into a campfire, or trying to decide whether you’re compatible with that guy from Match: Are you a cake person or a pie person? Actually, that’s not quite precise enough because, as we all know, not all cakes and not all pies are created equal. So:
If you had to choose between a lousy, 10th percentile quality pie or a lousy, 10th percentile quality cake, which would you eat?
Likewise: If you had to choose between a decent, 50th percentile quality pie, or a decent, 50th percentile quality cake, which would you take?
Finally, if you had to pick between a slice of the best pie in the world or a slice of the world’s best cake, which way would you go?
Let’s say you chose “cake,” “pie,” and “cake.” Congratulations, you are a cake-pie-cake person!
And as long as we’ve got you here, how about telling us where you stand on this issue? And, just as importantly, where — including perhaps your own kitchen — would you say you can find those 10th, 50th, and top percentile pies and cakes? Share in the comments.
