BOSTON -- A Peabody woman says a cupcake she tried to take on a flight with her sparked a potential security threat this week. Rebecca Hains says she was going through security at the airport in Las Vegas when a TSA agent pulled her aside and said the cupcake frosting was gel-like enough to constitute a security risk.
She said she was able to pass through Logan International Airport security with two cupcakes, but she was stopped on the way back when she tried to return with one of them.

He was hungry
And an idiot wrapped in a moron.
Where oh where does TSA get all these bloomin’ IDIOTS they hire??? Is that part of the job description???
Some cupcakes do have plastique filling. Like DingDongs.
Who’s kidding who. The fat slob wanted a cupcake to eat so he stole hers. End of story.
The terrorists won
You have to fail your IQ test to be hired by the TSA (Thoroughly Stupid Agency). They wouldn’t hire anyone that was smarter then their leaders!
British intelligence agency MI6 recently hacked an Al-Qaeda online magazine, replacing bomb-making instructions with a recipe for cupcakes.
Originally, the magazine had instructions on how to make pipe bombs, as well as articles by Osama bin Laden and deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri.
She pulled aside the TSA agent and said the agent’s brain was gel-like enough to constitute a security risk.
There. Now they’re even.
I feel safe already, don't you?
DingDongs are the bomb!
Gives a new meaning to cupcake wars.
Gel-like icing? That’s all? I thought maybe it was decorated with a miniature hard-sugar AK 47, or something really scary like a gummy worm in the shape of a samurai sword ....
I just returned from Hong Kong, where they did do a manual check of all carryon luggage. I don’t remember that from my last trip to China. Didn’t have to take off our shoes until San Francisco, however. So we got off an international flight where we had already been screened, walked through immigration and customs, and then had to clear security again to reboard. Go figure.
Say, maybe that's what happened! Maybe someone asked her about the cupcake, and she said "These are from Wicked Good cupcakes, and they are! They are sooooo good, they are just the bomb!"
And someone from the TSA overheard her, had to confiscate the cupcake, and then of course had to "test" the cupcake...
When airport security was nationalized way back in ole’ 2001, this is what they were talking about.
