Cake for me!

My choice is a nice freshly baked cake, can not be beat, with a tall glass of nice and cold milk!


My choice is cobblers. Fresh fruit cobblers can not be beaten.


I'd choose cake any day even if the fruit is better for you

cobblers win all day ..noting like a nice juicy sweet cobbler to comfort the soul.

Cobbler nom nom

There's no competition. Cake trumps cobblers any day.

For me it would be cobbler

I love Cobbler!

Cakes for me all the time

Cobbler of Course

cobbler, it's the best comfort food!

Cake, at the moment.

Cobbler. It's less work intensive and always so gooey good!

My favorite is Cake....love all kinds! But my husbands is cobbler, so I make more cobbler than cake )

Cobbler. Love all the fruit.

Ohhh Cobbler with any fruit, but this Pecan Dump Ohh My ...


Dump cake because it is like cake cobbler combined.

I really love cake, especially with lots of icing! )

Cobbler is my favorite with a side of vanilla ice cream!

I prefer cobblers over cakes.
