Could a cupcake be dangerous?  It could be according to the TSA.  A Massachusetts woman was trying to board a plane in Las Vegas and she had a cupcake in a jar filled with icing and the TSA took it away and stated that it exceeded the amount of gel allowed in a carry-on.

I understand that the TSA does what they do to make flying safer. But seriously? A cupcake is a threat to national security.

TSA has a tendency of taking things too far sometimes.

I'd be willing to be there are some unhappy children in Massachusetts that didn't get a cupcake.

I guess the lesson learned here is if you are going to buy a cupcake in Las Vegas and they try to fly home, put it in your checked baggage or get ready to eat it at the security check point.
