Vegas Eats Cake - $95K Worth

An organizing committee is eating the $95,000 cost of a centennial birthday cake that officials billed as the world's largest and said they thought was a corporate donation.

"We were under the impression there was a contract that covered this, but there wasn't," Stacy Allsbrook, executive director of the Las Vegas Centennial Celebration Committee, told the Las Vegas Sun for a Tuesday report.

Michael Hyams, chief operating officer of Las Vegas-based New Century Entertainment Group, said he was to blame for miscommunication between the committee and Chicago-based Sara Lee Corp.

Sara Lee spokeswoman Dawn Mann Charles said the company never agreed to donate the basketball court-sized cake. But it delivered it at a discount.
