Okay, I was being a bit dramatic with the title. My Darling Husband and I have an ongoing joking disagreement about using forks or spoons when eating cake and ice cream. One of use will sarcastically say, “I can’t believe I married someone eats cake and ice cream with an *fork*” or “If you only used a spoon the world would be a better place”.
So we thought we’d turn to the hive—when eating cake and ice cream, do you use a fork or spoon?
Do you and your SO/FI/DH have silly little faux fights about anything?

I think I use a fork, but heck its been so long since I had icecream and cake.

If its just cake then I would use a fork, but with ice cream I would use a spoon, I’m not sure how to eat icecream with a fork, all the yummy goodness would be left behind on the plate.. unless you lick the plate afterwards? just kidding

I use both. If it is just cake- fork. If it is just ice cream- spoon. If I don’t have an option, I make due with what I have.

@bells: I solve this problem by eating the icecream as quickly as possible.

I use a fork and Darling Husband also uses a fork. However, it didn’t register DH’s fork vote in the poll. I texted him this question for you LOL

I eat cake with a fork, and ice cream with a spoon. I don’t like them together but when I have had them together, I used a spoon. Ice cream with a fork is pure madness!

I too use fork for cake and spoon for ice cream. If there ice cream were on top of cake I could see a fork working for both. This is the most thought I’ve put into something all day…

Okay, I think it is so weird that people use spoons. Cakes are fork food! maybe I’ll start using a spork

I didn’t want to say what I used, for fear of swaying the poll–but I’m glad so many bees use spoons!! Seriously, lots of yuumy goodness is lost when using a fork with ice cream. But I also use a spoon to eat cake. Heck I use a spoon for anyththing that doesn’t involve spearing or cutting.

We both use a fork for cake + ice cream. We’ve had this same argument about mac and cheese.

Yeah, we have this argument with mac and cheese every time we eat it 🙂
I use a spoon for cake & ice cream (which I don’t eat together very often) and sometimes for just cake, too.

I use a fork for cake… b/c I like to “pick up” the crumbs by smooshing them with the back side of the fork..
and I use a spoon for ice cream.
Like others said though if it’s cake or ice cream together then I use a spoon

@LGenz: I think the mac and cheese utensil depends. If it’s with a meal-fork. But if it is the meal itself, it depends on the the type of mac and cheese. The custard type- fork; the gooey cheesy type- spoon.
Life is so difficult sometimes… 🙂
