"Terrorist Cake Decorator" Stopped at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport

Saturday, April 11th, a man was caught at the security checkpoint and after having his backpack searched, found that they were going to confiscate what they needed to
and let him go on. Items that were collected and disposed of were: homemade fondant, a tub of ready made chocolate frosting, and jello.

He had packed his bags ready to go and to take him and his daughters to the airport to fly to Salt Lake City where they would be met by his wife and drive to Provo to see their new grandson.

Being Easter weekend, he thought it would be good to take a few of his cake decorating supplies so that he could make an Easter cake while he was there.

He had not even thought about putting these supplies into the check-in luggage. He had put it in a small backpack and thought all was well. Well, it is well now knowing that it's over!

A flight that day was saved because of the great security network at Sky Harbor.

You know... there is probably an entire department of security that sit in their offices, day after day, searching blogs for *offending* or *threatening* words. I bet your blog just made their day!!!

Thank you Alison, Nicole, and Nilda for your comments. It was funny and frustrating. I had just made a great batch of gum paste(similar to fondant) and hated to see it thrown away all because it might be considered an ingredient for weapon of mass destruction, although I probably could have fashioned it into something like that! Oh well, it gave us something to chuckle about and that's definitely worth it. Thanks again
