Which is better: cheesecake or cake?

Cake is the language of celebration. Although a slice of New York cheesecake and a gleaming birthday cake each offer its own appeal, many argue one is superior to the other. Some prefer the velvety, luxurious feel of a cheesecake, saying the dessert is just sweet enough and provides better contrast in textures. Others argue cake is the star of the show. It's moist, layered, and intricate. Which do you think is better?

Cheesecake is like a cake's elegant older cousin. It is cake when it decides to put a tuxedo on; cheesecake is what cake wishes it could be. 

Cheesecake is light, airy and creamy and offers the perfect balance in flavor. A basic cheesecake offers a graham cracker crust, a baked cream cheese filling, and—if you're really lucky—a cascade of fruit or chocolate for an added burst of flavor. The contrast in the creamy filling pairs perfectly with the golden crust at the bottom. The result is a dessert that puts on no airs; it is decadent, delicious and simple, and it is the clear winner.

First of all, cheesecake isn't even cake; it's pie.

Second, cake is infinitely better than cheesecake. Cake offers layers of moist goodness, sandwiched between your choice of buttercream, mousse, ganache or fruit fillings. Cheesecakes offer no icing to speak of, and there's a reason the phrase is not the "fruit glaze on the cheesecake." 

Cake trumps cheesecake's simplicity by offering infinite styles and varieties. You can have molten chocolate cake, microwaved cake in a mug, or even cake cooked in a flower pot. Cake is creative where cheesecake is boring; it has layers.
