This round looks like a heavyweight division, no pun intended.

Baklava vs. Chocolate Cake

A cruel matchup between two great contenders. Both are excellent. At this time I'll pick chocolate cake, but with apologies to my friends the Greeks.

Pecan pie vs. Lemon Squares

Nuts? And what's the jelly-like stuff? No, thanks. Lemon squares are awesome and get my vote.

Peach Pie vs. Cream Cheese Mints

I had to look up cream cheese mints and still don't understand them. Pass the pie, please.

Devil's Food Cake vs. Apple Fritter

DF cake sounds great, but are we talking apple fritters like the doughnuts? Those things are killer. Gimme a fritter.

Raspberry gelato vs. Strawberry shortcake

I like shortcake. I like raspberry gelato. I'd probably usually go for gelato, but today I'm in the mood for shortcake. Let's go with that.

There is nothing more bland and boring than a piece of chocolate cake.

Chocolate cake is some overrated shit.It is. I love chocolate cake, but if I have several desserts to choose from, its low on the list.

Pecan pie voters should expect neg rep.

Granted, there are several things I might pick above it depending on my mood, it's....well....chocolate.

Chocolate Cake - Baklava is good too, but I'll stick with a standard chocolate cake.

Pecan pie - Neither of these appeal to me at all. If this was my choice on the menu, I'd probably skip dessert. I'll throw a bone to pecan pie though because my mother likes it.

Peach pie - I'm not a big fan of mint. There are much better pies than peach, but I'll take peach pie over these mints.

Devil's Food cake - Can someone explain the difference between Devil's Food cake and chocolate cake to me?

Strawberry Shortcake - Strawberry might be my favorite fruit. The shortcake is optional as far as I'm concerned.

Okay, baklava, cream cheese mints, devil's food cake, and raspberry gelato all take a loss.

Pecan pie and lemon squares each take half a loss. (Note, pecan pie advocates, that pecan pie is already teetering.)
