1,224-pound Cupcake Sets New World Record For World's Largest Cupcake

World's Largest Cupcake Attempt Is a Sweet Success

Another one to add to the list of highly unconventional cupcakes: This 1,224-pound behemoth of a baked good, which just knocked out a recent record contender for the title of world's largest cupcake.

The prodigious pastry, which composed of triple vanilla cake batter and topped with pink frosting, was more than eight times the size of the previous record holder in girth. It stood 4 feet tall and spanned 11 feet around, and was created by Manchester, NH-based GourmetGiftBaskets.com. It required 800 eggs, 200 pounds each of sugar and flour, five days of preparation, and 12 hours of baking time.
Slices of the cupcake were served over the weekend at the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise Classic Car Show in Detroit, MI, in exchange for donations to breast cancer foundation Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Even though the cupcake contained an estimated 2 million calories, I wouldn't have been able to pass up this once-in-a-lifetime indulgence. Does the cupcake look appetizing to you?

Like I said last time...that's not a cupcake. It's just a cupcake <i>shaped</i> cake. They didn't bake it one large giant cup.Also, it doesn't look appetizing. Really, cupcakes are nice because of their frosting to cake ratio and layering. As in each bite has some frosting and some cake.

Any time people make gigantic versions of food (150 lb hamburgers, 1200 lb pizzas, 1224 lb cupcakes, etc.) it totally kills my appetite. It doesn't look appealing, I guess. I appreciate the art form of the huge food; just not to eat.
