Or, more specifically, web pages are cake. Here’s why.
Think about a cake. Here’s a good one, for example. Your standard birthday cake is made up of three key layers: the cake itself, the frosting, and the extra decorations (sprinkles/jimmies/shots/whatever, frosted roses, etc.) on top.
A good cake incorporates these components in a particular proportion. The foundation of the cake (and the bulk of its volume) is the moist, spongy layer. Above that, a thick—but not too thick—helping of frosting (buttercream, whipped, lard-based… you name it). And finally, skillfully-applied decorations complete the cake.
Now who’s for cake?
