Pie vs. Cupcake: Which Trendy Dessert Is Healthier?

The cupcake craze seems to be reaching its peak, but there's a new trendy dessert poised to take its place — pie. The most traditional of baked goods has been enjoying a resurgence lately, with 12 million more slices sold last year than the year before.

With pie's popularity on the rise, chances are you'll be seeing the new bakeries pop up with over-the-top latticed creations ready to compete with those ubiquitous cupcakes. If you need a sugar fix, which baked good is better for you — a slice of pie (typically 1/8 of a nine-inch pie, or about three ounces) or a cupcake with frosting?

Check out the nutritional breakdown of what you're craving after the break.
