A couple more shots of the Wrigley cake. 4x5 feet, took 4 people 6 days to make: pic.twitter.com/NSGJ1oW86s— Danny Ecker (@DannyEcker) April 23, 2014
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.
