Monday Manglish--Pie Cake
Happy Thanksgiving--hope everyone ate their fill of Pumpkin Pie Especially Making! Was yours mild and delicious? Did it give you fresh and natural flavor :-))? One can only hope so, though we should all be so fortunate as to have our pie, and eat cake, too. As usual, it seems, recent American inventions like the Pake appear to be recently immigrated ideas from Japan. I recall seeing both Cake Pie and Pie Cake in convenience stores back in 1999--both of which were naturally much smaller than their American counterparts, and therefore much less hazardous to your health :-)) Although to be completely fair, neither pie nor cake is of Japanese origin (obviously). And given the amount of Manglish I see, you could certainly say that the borrowing goes both ways...
