Cupcakes may be the trend that won't die, but in this contest they couldn't hold a candle to the ooey-gooey-flaky-chewy goodness of homemade pies. What put PETSI PIES over the top? It could've been that their pies are available in three sizes (five, eight, and 10 inches), their tasty variations on apple pie (classic, crumb top, and apple-pear-cranberry), or even their inclusion of savory treats like a potato tart with shiitake, portobello, and crimini mushrooms. But their ace in the hole may just have been that Petsi makes cupcakes too, rendering our "versus" deliciously moot.
