Unfortunately the Chicago Cubs couldn’t have their cake and eat it too.

The 400-pound Wrigley replica cake was disposed by a Field Museum dumpster.

After Wednesday’s game, the centennial cake was sent to the museum for a charity event.

The museum decided not to serve the cake since it had been out all day.

The following statement was released by the team: “The Chicago Cubs are disappointed in how our Wrigley Field display cake was disposed of 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.”

The museum apologized saying they will make sure something like this doesn’t happen again.

  • Lets waste some more money

    So regardless on who financed the cake. That cake would have fed a good amount of the homless people who occupy that area. Even though it is just cake, for someone that hasn’t eaten in days it helps. However you have certain people who have 50-150,000$ jobs at the museum who just dont care.That cake was 400 pounds, shame in the museum for their descision as they eat their meals. I will never go back to the museum, lets face it they charge all of

    us to go view the exhibs in the museums even though I pay taxes.
