The cupcake world has been all aflutter with the news about TSA confiscating a woman’s cupcake before they would allow her to get on the plane. TSA has now coined the event Cupcakegate. Well, Wicked Good Cupcakes, the creator of the criminal cupcake, is not the only cupcakery capitalizing off the event. The Silver Spoon Bakery of Providence, RI is now offering the TSA Compliant Cupcake. The $4 cupcake comes with a (fake) boarding pass, and is topped with exactly 3 ounces of frosting and sold in a TSA-mandated clear, quart-size plastic blag. The accompanying photo of Richard Nixon saying “I am not a gel” is optional. The cupcake has already been tested, by a fan of The Silver Spoon Bakery, and it did make it through security!
