idiom: falls under the same concept as The Cake Is A Lie.

"The Cake Is A Pie" implies that a promised reward is sought after and is found, much to one's chagrin, a plain, stripped-down, bland or otherwise unappealing alternative; always unbeknownst to the person who made the promise, as they assume the expected reward and the reward, the "cake" and the "pie", are mutually interchangeable-- when in fact cake is multilayered, iced, cream-filled, and decked the fuck out, and pie is, bread.
A: ...I ran errands for months on end, and two years in, all that toiling in the sun, pulling twice her fucking weight.. for a fucking Sony Walkman.

B: ...

C: *studies MP3* What happened to i5?

C: T-T crusty old doof bitch T-T

A: I know right wtf is this shit this is not iPod T^T thats why shes dying T^T.

B: ...

...e_e...

...You never specified...

...e_e...

Here, because her intent wasn't to lie, the problem is not that the cake is a lie.

The problem is that the cake is a pie.
