How to celebrate total death and destruction

On 6th August 1945, a B29 bomber dropped an atom bomb on Hiroshima.

It has been estimated that over the years around 200,000 people have died as a result of this bomb being dropped.

Hmm, I wonder how we could celebrate this amazing use of military might? Wait, I know! Cake!

U.S. Navy Vice Admiral William H. P. Blandy, his wife, and Rear Admiral Frank J. Lowry cut a cake made in the shape of a mushroom cloud at a reception for Operation Crossroads, November 6, 1946.
