The Army's birthday and the sweetest tank ever
Published: June 14, 2012
The United States Army is 237 years old today. What, you might wonder, is an appropriate gift for a 237-year-old fighting force?
For the owners of Washington-based Georgetown Cupcake, that was a no-brainer. Katherine Kallinis and Sophie LaMontagne visited the Pentagon on Thursday with a 2,500-pound “tank,” covered with 5,000 cupcakes and fully capable of launching a barrage of frosting-topped goodness at anything that gets in its way.
Pentagon reporter Jennifer Hlad, a woman who knows a thing or two about baking cupcakes, was on the scene to snap some photos and, perhaps, eat a bit of the tank. She reports that the cupcakes were chocolate, with mocha buttercream and camo-painted fondant.
