OK, here's something that literally "takes the cake" when it comes to our discussion of air travel hazards and the TSA.
I am sure most of you have read by now about the woman who had her frosted cupcake in a jar confiscated from her at the Las Vegas airport because the TSA said the frosting on it was a gel and exceeded the 3 ounce limit.
Here's more on THAT story,
but if you don't have time to read all of it, just enjoy the punchline: the bakery which produces those tasty cakes has renamed that the red velvet delight which caused the uproar: It's now called "National (Security) Velvet."
And, there's more: the LA Times
reports there's now a bakery in Rhode Island which has capitalized on the story by creating a cupcake that meets TSA standards...
Love that this story has apparently become known as "Cupcakegate."
