Wrigley Field Cake Finds Fitting End In A Dumpster

It wasn’t supposed to go like this. The Chicago Cubs had big plans for their massive, 400-pound Wrigley Field replica cake.

“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.

But, like every Cubs season for the past 105 years, the big guy ended up in the dumpster – a mass of shattered dreams and wasted potential.
