What better way to celebrate the Army's 237th birthday than with a tank made of cupcakes?

We're talking 5,000 cupcakes and 200 pounds of camouflage frosting. The tank can even shoot out more cupcakes.

In all, the project ran about $10,000 dollars. A Washington D.C. bakery called Georgetown Cupcakes donated the tank for the birthday bash at the Pentagon.

The Army is the oldest branch of the U.S. military.
