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.
