TSA confiscates cupcake over “dangerous” icing

Wow, who doesn’t feel safer when we have TSA agents who rough up elderly women and confiscates cupcakes? What an expensive joke the TSA has become.

A Massachusetts woman who flew home from Las Vegas this week says an airport security officer took her frosted cupcake because he thought its vanilla-bourbon icing could be a “security risk.” Rebecca Hains told ABCNews.com today that a Transportation Security Administration agent at Las Vegas- McCarran International Airport confiscated her cupcake, saying the frosting sitting atop the red velvet cake was gel-like enough to violate regulations.
