Northeast Ohio cupcake recipe used in British Intelligence operation

HUDSON, OH (WOIO) - British intelligence hacked into an Al-Qaeda website and swapped homemade bomb instructions with cupcake recipes.

The cupcake recipe from a Northeast Ohio bakery was used during "Operation Cupcake." Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio had their Mojito cupcake featured.

The cupcake shop was featured on an episode of Ellen Degeneres four years ago. The article on the show's website called "Best Cupcakes in America" was posted by British intelligence on an online Al-Qaeda magazine in place of the instructions on how to make a homemade bomb.

Workers at Main Street Cupcake were unavailable for comment Saturday. The MSC Mojito cupcake is a white rum cake with hints of mint and lime covered in vanilla buttercream with a Mojito buttercream garnish
