Apparently cupcakes can be a security threat. Rebecca Hains had her cupcake confiscated this holiday weekend by the TSA in Las Vegas. She went through Logan Airport with two cupcakes, ate one, and then at McCarran International Airport the second one was taken from her. The cupcake shop, Wicked Good Cupcakes of Cohasset, is going to send Hains a new batch. Luckily, during my trip back from New York, I was able to carry my cupcake. The TSA agent only wanted it if it were Banana Pudding from Magnolia Bakery for her to eat! Because it is the best.
