Wrigley Field celebrates its 100th birthday with a 400-pound cake

One cake, 400 pounds. Not 400 pound cakes, that would be silly.

Happy Birthday Wrigley Field! You're looking pretty great good okay for a 100-year-old.

There's something beautiful and pure about baking a cake for an inanimate object. It's like celebrating a cat's birthday and forcing it to wear a party hat while it glares at you, wanting to kill you.

It would have been nice to include the ivy on the outfield walls, but it's an understandable omission (Update: It's there after all. Good job!). What we can't overlook is how disappointed we are that there's no tiny Ferris Bueller in the stands. A tiny leopard-print vested figure would have made this cake legendary.
