(CBS) No party’s complete without a cake, and so on the 100-year anniversary of Wrigley Field opening, they went big for the historic ballpark.
A 400-pound birthday cake commemorating Wrigley Field is on display outside the park this morning as the Cubs ready to play the Diamondbacks at 1:20 p.m.
The four-by-five-foot cake was made by Carlo’s Bakery. It will later be moved across town for the team’s Bricks and Ivy Charity Ball.
Here’s a few photos from Danny Ecker of Crain’s Chicago Business on Twitter. He reported that it took four people six days to make.
