ok, me and my twin brother think that a pastry isnt a cake.. and my mum and dad think a pastry is a cake. my side of the argument is... that a pie is made of pastry (eg a cherry pie, not a meat n potato pie) but you wouldnt call a pie a cake! a cake is a cake, you wouldnt expect a danish pastry when you ask for a cake would you?! im going to leave my mum to defend her side of the argument, as she is registered on here (drummergurl's mummy, i think that's what her username is anyway) this has all come about from mum buying some danish pastries and calling them cakes.. and me not knowing what she was on about, which then caused an argument in the car on the way home from band... so, which is it?! is a pastry a cake? or as i think, is it just plainly a pastry?!
