In what can only be explained as an act of hypoglycemic lunacy a TSA security agent at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas confiscated a cupcake from a passenger at security.

According to Rebecca Hains, the TSA agent told her that her cupcake’s frosting was enough like a gel to violate TSA restrictions on allowing liquids and gels onto flights to prevent them from being used as explosives.
