U.K. Counters Terrorists by Redirecting Them to U.S. Cupcake Recipes

After they were all prepped and ready to start making bombs in moms kitchen... I wonder How many Al Qaida Rejects have followed the directions and made cupcakes now, or better yet how many have bookmarked the cupcake website.

LONDON -- Would-be terrorists searching the Internet for tips on how to build bombs were instead taught how to bake the perfect cupcake after an intervention by British intelligence, London's The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

Intelligence agency MI6 launched the cyber operation against jihadi magazine, Inspire, in an attempt to hamper attempts by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular (AQAP) to attract "lone wolf" terrorists.

Surfers trying to download the English-language magazine's "Make a bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom" feature were instead redirected to a site boasting recipes for "The Best Cupcakes in America."

The baking site, which is published by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," promises treats for "today's sweet-toothed hipsters" including the mojito cupcake, made using white rum and vanilla buttercream.

The 67-page Inspire contains instructions on how to make rudimentary pipe bombs using sugar, match heads and a miniature lightbulb.
