TSA officials are defending the decision to confiscate a cupcake from a woman boarding a plane in Las Vegas.
Last month, Rebecca Hains of Peabody, Massachusetts, was trying to return home with what is being called a "cupcake in a jar." Agents say the the cupcake's frosting, which is considered a gel, exceeding the 3 ounce limit.
Bob Burns with the TSA Blog Team writes:
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. As you can see from the picture, 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.
