Oh yeah, frozen yogurt can't hold a candle to ice cream! There's a frozen yogurt place opening up on the same block as two of our city's five best ice cream shops (they'll have to start naming it the frozen treat district, or something). I'll be casting daggers with my eyes at the frozen yogurt eaters. :x

Cupcakes are the blandest cakes out there.

Stollen -now there's a proper cake.

But "cupcake" can encompass any flavor of cake; the term "cupcake" just describes the size of the actual cake. Granted, I'm not sure Stollen would work in cupcake form, but still - a "cupcake" is not, in and of itself, bland.

It is good to know a man can not live on BBQ and deep fried turkey alone,

God Bless the cupcake

I don't think I like the sound of deep-frying anything with the word turd in it ... :?

A turducken is a dish consisting of a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which itself is stuffed into a de-boned turkey. The word turducken is a portmanteau of turkey, duck, and chicken or hen.

The thoracic cavity of the chicken/game hen and the rest of the gaps are stuffed, sometimes with a highly seasoned breadcrumb mixture or sausage meat, although some versions have a different stuffing for each bird. The result is a fairly solid layered poultry dish, suitable for cooking by braising, roasting, grilling, or barbecuing.


Ideally, the gaps should be stuffed with crawfish dressing. mmmmm.....

Those are definitely cupcakes! Muffins are generally less sweet than cupcakes, and don't have frosting.

So I was just out for a walk to get a sandwich and lo-and-behold there's a cupcake shop opening up right around the corner from me!

I fairness, I believe the designer cupcake shop began in NYC, migrating out here. We aren't blameless, though: Pinkberry started in West Hollywood.

As for the original question: given the choice between cakey and pieish, I'll go for pie pretty much every time. Cheesecake (which is really at least as much a pie -- i.e., not crumby) is an exception.
