The most important question you'll ever have to ponder...

Cake or pie? Watch Betty White, Tina, Steve Carell, and other funny folk tackle the question...

Watch the full episode. See more Mark Twain Prize.

I love me some desserts. Cake or pie is not an easy choice...That's why I usually make sure that my dinner mates are all choosing different things so that we can all share without having to choose. I enjoy eating both equally.

However, when it comes to making either one, cake is usually the winner. I always have the ingredients for cake, but may not always have the fruit/pudding mix/flavoring/cream/etc. needed for a pie. Also, I've made some simple but pretty cakes in the past...Pies are usually more challenging for me to make. The crust has to be just perfectly flaky and golden, and the bottom crust shouldn't get soggy during baking, and you can't just stick frosting all over it to cover any mistakes! That being said, I do enjoy making pies, and they do usually come out quite tasty...It's just that they never come out looking as pretty as a well frosted cake.

Which do you prefer? Cake or pie?

Most success I ever had with an apple pie. It just looks like poop.

Oh, I prefer pie. Apple pie. I've skipped caked on a number of birthdays in favor of pie.

Really, my whole dislike of cake is because I don't like frosting and everybody else won't eat cake without it. So I'll just take pie.
