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.
