The Army's Weapon of Mass Deliciousness

United States Army

This is a tank that will conquer all dessert environments.

On Friday, TLC’s "D.C. Cupcakes" show will reveal the details behind the construction of a fully functioning, 1-ton cupcake tank built by Washington-based Georgetown Cupcakes last year. 

The company’s owners, Katherine Kallinis Berman and her sister Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, baked last year's tank to commemorate the service's 237th birthday, and donated the $9,800 cost of the cupcakes, according to ABC NewsAs for the details, 5,000 cupcakes coated the outside of the tank, and 200 pounds of camouflage fondant were used, according to the Army Live blog.  

This year the company will be giving away free treats to all active duty military members, veterans and family at the store’s locations nationwide to celebrate the service’s 238th birthday on Friday.  

Sweet.
