Secret Intelligence Service MI6 launched a cyber warfare attack against Al Qaeda’s websites that offer up bomb making recipes and other terrorist accoutrement. Now instead of finding a “How To” on making homemade explosives, Al Qaeda members can find recipes for delicious cupcakes.

The code, which had been inserted into the original magazine by the British intelligence hackers, was actually a web page of recipes for “The Best Cupcakes in America” published by the Ellen DeGeneres chat show.

Written by Dulcy Israel and produced by Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio, it said “the little cupcake is big again” adding: “Self-contained and satisfying, it summons memories of childhood even as it’s updated for today’s sweet-toothed hipsters.”

It included a recipe for the Mojito Cupcake – “made of white rum cake and draped in vanilla buttercream”- and the Rocky Road Cupcake – “warning: sugar rush ahead!”

In all reality, if Al Qaeda wants to throw some cupcakes at me, i’ll welcome the gift with open arms, and mouth.
