Record Set for World’s Largest King Cake

Record Setting King Cake

King Cakes are pastries that are associated with New Orleans and Mardi Gras. The cakes are actually sweet, yeast breads made with a dough that is similar to danish dough and are iced with bright colors and sprinkles. Many are also filled to make them even richer, and feature cream cheese-type fillings or almond paste, just to name a couple of options. I tend to ... Read More »

New record set for World’s Largest Cupcake

New record set for World's Largest Cupcake

I felt bad that I wasn’t impressed by the 150-lb cupcake that set the Guinness record for World’s Largest Cupcake. It may have been big for a cupcake, but it also didn’t look to be much bigger than some cakes I’ve seen (and smaller than others!). But the record has been broken with a cupcake that is a bit more impressive – nearly 10 times ... Read More »

Follow the quest to bake the World’s Largest Cupcake

Just last month, the Guinness World Record for Largest Cupcake was set in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a cupcake weighing 150-lbs. The cupcake, while large, was actually not as impressive as you might think. It stood just 12 inches tall and 24 inches wide. It also wasn’t eaten after the record was recorded, although that is usually traditional with record-setting foods, but was instead shipped out ... Read More »

Some of the easiest world records to set are food records, because even though it isn’t easy to build a giant food item, it is a heck of a lot easier than, say, being the fastest person up Mount Everest. In Minneapolis, Minnesota, the world’s largest cupcake was unveiled this past weekend. It measured 12 inches tall and 24 inches wide, which is much smaller ... Read More »

World’s Biggest Cheesecake Record Set

World's Biggest Cheesecake

I’ve seen some huge cheesecakes at various restaurants and bakeries, but not even the biggest Cheesecake Factory cheesecake comes close to the world record setting cheesecake baked in Mexico last week. The massive cheesecake weighed about 2 tons by the time it was finished! It used nearly a ton of cream cheese and yogurt – equal parts of each, along with 772 pounds of pastry ... Read More »

World’s Heaviest Fruit Cake

In Romania this week, a Guinness-approved record was set for the world’s heaviest cake. Normally, being “heavy” is not a real selling point for a cake. Cakes are expected to be light and tender. Even pound cakes, which are known for their tight, dense crumb, are still expected to on the light side. The one exception to this general rule is the fruit cake. These ... Read More »

A record setting birthday cake

Lots of candles!

At your last birthday, someone made a joke about the number of candles on the cake being a fire hazard. It doesn’t matter if there are two candles or eighty two – there’s just one at every party, isn’t there? But every once in a while, even the most hackneyed joke comes close to being true. A new Guinness World Record was just set for ... Read More »
