A cupcake weighing in at 151 pounds has been certified as the world's largest by Guinness World Records. Fifteen pounds of fudge filling and 60 pounds of yellow icing decorate the 1-foot tall, 2-foot wide sugary sweet. Guinness World Records adjudicator Danny Girton Jr. called it a "fun and creative achievement." The cupcake was made by cakes.com, which is run by cake-decoration supplier and marketer DecoPac. Company spokeswoman Jamie Miller said the giant cupcake will go to a pig farm. The company decided against giving away pieces to mall patrons because most would not have had frosting. Instead, cakes.com gave away 4,000 smaller cupcakes.
A candle topped the creation, bringing the total height to 4 feet. The cupcake's final size yielded 1,500 servings. The world record cupcake was made as part of a celebration of the 10th anniversary of Nickelodeon character SpongeBob SquarePants held at Mall of America's Nickelodeon Universe.
