If a cake is made mostly of inedible parts, can it really be called a cake?

Hey, whatever works.On second thought...

I thought most of those artsy cakes weren't meant to be eaten anyway.

They are generally edible, but they are not designed to taste good. They basically taste like water and flour paste

Has anybody reported on how the cake boss' cakes taste? They look amazing usually, but I always wondered if they are better than a grocery store box cake?

The sad thing is that the Cubs felt the need to post an indignant remark about the cake being tossed unceremoniously. The same Cubs who tossed a bunch of Ron Santo memorabilia unceremoniously and got called out for it. The cake was pretty much inedible anyway so who cares?

/would you eat a cake that's been sitting outside all day?

Fark yes I would!  So it might be a tiny bit stale, I don't care.  As long as it isn't rotten I'll nomnomnom that thing like no tomorrow

Cake is the only food where if you refuse it people won't back down and will continue shoving a piece in your hands until you give in and eat the damn thing.  I wish people would do that with chicken wings.

What I pull from the headline: The Cubs have a strong tendency to destroy things, such as their fans' hopes and dreams.

I'd say that maybe trashing the cake could be what helps the Cubs trash their curse, but knowing what their team is like this year ... no.

/Really hoping the Crew can sweep them this weekend.

If only they'd allowed a goat to eat it...

And then the goat would choke and die, which would lead to the Cubs being cursed by PETA.

It was 40 degrees at game time on Wednesday, and the cake was under glass while it was on display. I think it would have been ok to eat.

I have friends who only go to Carlo's for their kids birthday cakes. I should preface this by saying I have never had one of their mega design cakes, so I can't tell you about that, but I will say their regular cakes are good. Not amazing, better than store bought, and about on the same level as your local bakery. I think the one complaint I will say about them is that they are too sweet at times. It can overtake the flavor of rest of the cake.

That's what I've heard.  There are display cakes, and there are better, more edible cakes.  If someone gets a super-fancy cake for their wedding, for example, the cake designer will generally include another cake meant for eating.

I've eaten a piece of a designed cake.  Its certainly not going to kill you, but its not very good.

Usually the fancier looking a cake the crappier it is going to actually taste. The plain looking cakes from old fashioned mom and pop bakeries that don't go nuts on the presentation (unless its a cake that involves actual nuts) are always way better than the fancier looking cakes.

Yeah.  I think its the fondant* used to sculpt all sorts of wild shapes and things.  It works well for a reason- because its pretty much glue.  And glue doesn't taste good to anyone over the age of 5.

*I could be talking out my ass, I have zero baking skills.

the cake had pieces of styrofoam as part of its structure, along with fondant and frosting, etc.  It was not ever meant for consumption.  very little of it is "edible", and has been mentioned, none of it is tasty.  Separate sheet cakes were made, cut, and served to guests.

by the time the cake made it to the dumpster, most of the little fondant people in the stands had melted down to goo.  it was inside at room temp in the Field Museum for hours.

the argument has been made by some that it should have been donated to a homeless shelter.

no.  bad idea. homeless shelters will not accept donations of perishable foods that have been sitting out at room temp for hours. they will turn it away. the last thing they want is a shelter full of homeless people with food borne illness.
