Wrigley Field 100th Anniversary Cake Found Tossed In Dumpster Uneaten

This is what’s called ‘irony’.

The 5 foot tall, 400 pound mega-cake made to commemorate the 100th birthday of Wrigley Field is now resting in a dumpster at the park uneaten.

The cake was made at the famed Carlos Bakery, where the show Cake Boss is filmed and was tossed in the trash for reasons I’m still not clear on. The Cubs issued this statement:

“The Chicago Cubs are disappointed in how our Wrigley Field display cake was disposed by the Field Museum following our successful charity event.  The team made a decision not to serve the edible portion after the cake was on display outside Wrigley Field for most of the day.  Though the cake was mostly made up of non-edible material, it certainly does not excuse how a celebratory cake artfully created by Buddy Valastro and Carlo’s Bakery was handled.”

So basically because the cake was outside for a long time it was considered inedible…right…
