CHICAGO -- A lot of Cubs' fans may find this hard to swallow. The 400-pound cake created for Wednesday's 100th celebration ended up in a dumpster.

The Cubs issued this statement:

        The Chicago Cubs are disappointed in how our Wrigley Field display cake was
        disposed following a charity event. The team made a decision not to serve the
        edible portion after the cake was on display outside most of the day. Though
        the cake was mostly made up of non-edible material, it certainly doesn't
        excuse how it was handled.
