You know when people ask you what camp you sit in: cake or frosting? Growing up, I had always considered myself a cake girl. I had always been the girl who scraped 90% of the frosting off cakes before eating. Turns out it was because I had only ever eaten grocery store cakes where the frosting was overly sweet, made with powdered sugar, butter, way too much food coloring...and nothing else.
Now that I'm older and know what good frosting tastes like, my answer would be "neither." I sit in neither camp. Because one without the other is incomplete. One without the other is nothing by itself.
