When it comes to cakes, it's only Fudgy the Whale for me:
In any case, I'm totally in agreement here. I think the only thing that belongs in cakes is chocolate; that said, the only thing that belongs in cookies is chocolate chips. I mean, I know there are a lot of cookies out there, but nothing is better than chocolate chip, or some variation thereof. Additionally, adding things to chocolate chip cookies on detracts from their appeal; chocolate chip cookies are great... chocolate chip cookies with walnuts, while good, aren't great. Why add nuts, the chips are all you need? Oatmeal? This is dessert we're talking about, not breakfast. And I can't think of any horror more boring than the sugar cookie, or more pretentious and stupid than the snickerdoodle.
