Gather up 800 eggs, 200 pounds of flour and 200 pounds of sugar, bake for 12 hours and you too can break a world record. Ryan Abood, who owns Gourmetgiftbaskets.com, baked a 1,224-pound triple vanilla cupcake with pink frosting, which earned the distinction as world’s largest.
Abood’s cupcake made its debut at the Woodward Dream Cruise classic cars event in Royal Oak, Mich. A representative of Guinness World Records verified that it was more than eight times the size of the previous record holder.
The world’s largest cupcake packed an estimated 2 million calories. After confirming the record, the cupcake was sliced into pieces and served in exchange for donations to the Susan G. Komen breast cancer organization.
