Photo: Cubs trash 400-pound celebratory cake without eating any of it


The Cubs did the most Cubs thing ever with their 400-pound cake.

On Tuesday, the Cubs celebrated the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field in part by putting a giant replica cake of the historic stadium on display. It was a grand gesture and certainly one that deserved eating.

Unfortunately, this photo taken by a Reddit user charged with disposing of the cake shows what was left of it after the celebration was over. Apparently, the Cubs decided to trash it without giving much effort at all at consumption. What a shame.

The team issued the following statement regarding the cake shortly thereafter:

“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.”

Cubs gonna Cub.

  5. all companies throw away any leftovers and usuable damaged goods, because everyone now a days is sue happy. you give something away that isn't brand new and not used in any way and someone will find a way to sue you over something about it

  6. The article mentions most the cake was non-edible. As much as most of you think it's a great idea to donate what is edible to shelters and other organizations. The sad truth is that most shelters and organizations will refuse it. Most places have strict guidelines on what food donations they will accept.
