A cupcake chain called Crumbs has just gone public on Wall Street in a $66 million deal - but food critics say cupcakes have jumped the shark and that pie is the new cupcake. The Pie Vs. Cupcake battle heats up, and pro-pie blogger Beth Howard makes an impassioned plea for tolerance. Confused? So is Day 6 producer Chris Trowbridge.
Visit Beth Howard's excellent blog "The World Needs More Pie" here - to read her original essay, "Pie, Cupcakes, Can't We All Just Get Along?" - an excerpted version of which Beth delivered in the Day 6 story. You can also hear Beth celebrate the virtues of pie on NPR here.
