Which is better: the icing or the cake?

Cake is such a happy thing, is it not? No one passes by a bakery window and gets sad seeing the colorful, many-tiered masterpieces that typically symbolize the celebration of birthdays and good tidings. There is a divide in the cake-eating community, however: some argue that the icing is the best part of any cake, and may be, in fact, the only reason to eat cake in the first place. Others state the only reason to eat cake is for the cake itself, dummy. Which side are you on?

If you say icing or frosting isn’t the best part of cake, you’re straight-up kidding yourself. Icing is without a doubt the best part of cake, period. Buttercream; whipped cream; even fondant—the delightful wrapping to the whole package. How could the phrase “It was the icing on the cake” even exist if the general consensus (truth) was that icing is the only reason to eat cake, really?

Much like shoes to an outfit, icing it what brings the cake all together; it’s defining quality, if you will. For if a cake has no icing, is it actually a cake at all? We’ll let you mull that one over. Try not to lose too much sleep.

Why, in all that is holy, would one not eat cake for the cake itself? It’s like picking the chocolate chips out of the cookie and tossing the rest into the trash bin. It makes no logical sense and, additionally, has an almost offensive nature to it. How can someone with a soul look at fondant (yuck) and honestly claim that, yes, that’s the only reason to take a slice of that? They can’t, is the answer to that.

There’s so much more to cake than just what tops it, anyhow. So quit being so shallow, and eat cake for cake’s sake.
