Cake and Cookies. From the dawn of time these two titans of the dessert world have been battling it out, and for good reason. Both are delicious. Both get our taste buds in a frenzy. And yet, we’re always thrown in the middle of choosing one or the other. Think about it, any time we have to bring a dessert to a party or gathering, we find ourselves asking which would be better, cake or cookies. Any time we need to satisfy our sweet tooth, we have to decide between cake and cookies.
