The Chicago Cubs are having one heck of a birthday party Wednesday, celebrating 100 years of Wrigley Field. They enlisted character actors dressed like it's 1914, dressed both teams in throwback uniforms and handed out free cupcakes and replica jerseys to fans.

But as everybody knows, it's not a birthday party if there's not a birthday cake. The Cubs got a pretty memorable one. The team hired celebrity baker Buddy Valastro, best known from the "Cake Boss" reality show, and his team at Carlo's Bakery in New Jersey to make a 400-pound cake that resembled Wrigley.
