America's Transport Security Administration (TSA) is defending its decision to confiscate a woman's cupcake at a Las Vegas check-in last month.
Rebecca Hains, from Massachusetts, had her cake taken away from her because she was carrying it in a jar of icing - a substance considered a form of gel, which falls under the agency's guidelines on liquids, reports the Metro.
It is believed that plastic or liquid explosives could be held in a gel-like substance, and Reecca was reportedly carrying an amount that exceeded the allowed limit of the law that was put in place to prevent risk of terror attacks.
A member of the TSA blog team took to the internet this week to defend and explain the decision.
According to USA Today, he wrote: "I wanted to make it clear that this wasn't your everyday, run-of-the-mill cupcake. If you're not familiar with it, we have a policy directly related to the UK liquid bomb plot of 2006 called 3-1-1 that limits the amount of liquids, gels and aerosols you can bring in your carry-on luggage.
"Icing falls under the 'gel' category... unlike a thin layer of icing that resides on the top of most cupcakes, this cupcake had a thick layer of icing inside a jar."
What do you think... Was it a big cake mistake to make? Or a justifiable measure taken in the name of safety?
After all, as Mr Burns points out: "When you think about it, do you think an explosive would be concealed in an ominous item that would draw attention, or something as simple as a cute cupcake jar?"
