The Lady's ChoiceLong, long ago in a forgotten kingdom
On the Barbary Coast,
Two chieftains came together, upon the field of honor.
Theirs was a great debate, for they both desired the hand,
Of the fiercely beautiful princess; sole daughter of the king.
"Let us make dessert, not war. For why should I slay my comrade?" exclaimed Aranac. "Instead one shall win her hand Via her truest desires: cake or pie."
"Fair enough." agreed Bocephus. "Let us begin at once. We shall present our creations
At the same time. And whichsoever she shall choose, to him shall she be betrothed."
"Agreed."
And so they labored day and night. But to the scullery maid's great fright
Neither one could get it right.
Bocephus thought a pie was simply a matter
Of squashing together whatever he could find.
Birds and mud and bits of twine
Field corn and radishes and turpentine.
"What in gracious sakes is this?" demanded the cook.
"I'm glad you approve; here take a look." said the Chief with glee.
One small taste and the cook turned gree

The Fall of Fondant ValeLong, long ago (in sweeter times), the Kingdom of Cake and the Principality of Pie were fast friends. For more than a hundred generations, the monarchs of both nations had let their spearmint swords gather icing sugar dust, this legacy of peace far greater than any tribute that bitter war could win. So long had these noble lineages lived without the threat of battle that they had no need of cavalry, and their caramel coursers went shoeless, spending their days munching on the delicious grass of the surrounding fields. Fondant Vale, that place was called—so soft and nummy were the delightful things that grew there—and it was known across the civilised world for its beauty and tranquillity. With no need to grow such things as wheat or oats, the valley between the palaces of these great nations was like a garden, planted with pleasing hedges and winding paths, and this happy place, lamentably, is where our sad tale must begin.
“O ye gathered here,” began Prince Pec

The War of End LaneJane wiped her palms on her apron, and reached over to shake the woman’s hand.  The counter was between them, laden with meat pies, fish pies, vegetable pies and pies that might have contained anything.
‘This is Mademoiselle Yvette Le Tellier,’ said Charles.  ‘His Lordship and I brought her back from Paris.  Yvette, this is Jane Tyler, a very good friend of mine.’
Yvette was dressed like an aristocrat, and the lace flowing from her elbows brushed against the pie crusts.  Her skirts took up the space of three people.  Her face and hands were powdered white.  Her wig was powdered too, and fell in stiff ringlets around her face.
Enchanté, Mademoiselle Tyler,’ said Yvette.  ‘It is a very wonderful friend you have in Charles.  Why, he all but whisked me from under the blade of la guillotine herself!  Such a brave and clever man!’
‘Yeah, I suppose,’ said Jane.  ‘What kind of pie would you like?

The Eclair KingThe Éclair King
21-6-13
There was once a time, long ago, when ancient Gods ruled the earth under the leadership of the mighty Zeus. However, the untold story is how Zeus gained his lofty throne through the split of what could have been an eternal friendship; Cake and Pie.
Before Zeus was even heard of, Cake and Pie created the world. They worked in harmony – each being equally tasty and delicious – and the many different minion varieties worked hard to populate the world with desert fit for a king...only there were no people. In the excitement of creating tasty noms, the thought of who was going to nibble the noms had not crossed paths with any other thoughts.
“There is too much chocolate over by Greece.”
Pie looked up from his book, “1001 Ways to Annoy Thorny Coconuts”.
“There is too much chocolate over by Greece.”
“So send in some lemon peel to even things out.” Pie went back to his book, frantically making not

That was my idea behind having judges that have varying tastes.  Each piece was read by three different judges to make it fair.
