It's all fun and games until someone overdoes on cake. A cake eating contest in Birmingham, England has claimed the life of a man who was participating in the event to raise funds for an art exhibit. The cake that killed the man were fairy cakes, which are commonly known in America as cupcakes.
Yes you read that all right. Death by cupcakes. Yea, that is just not a dignified way to go there. Bloated from the ever expanding cake in the stomach, face covered in icing, your teeth and tongue stained from the coloring used to make the delicious treats look pretty, a glass of milk gets warm as your body gets colder...not the way I want to go at all. Truly tragic. Lets hope he won, although you can't have your cake and eat it too.
