World's Largest Cupcake to Trounce Mizner Park at Think Pink Rocks
|Who you calling a cupcake, cupcake?|
So what does it take to make a 1500-pound brick o' cake? The ingredients are:
- 240 pounds of eggs
- 225 pounds of sugar
- 510 pounds of flour
- 225 pounds of baking powder, oil, vanilla, cocoa, salt, milk and water
- 350 pounds of icing
- 24 hours of baking time
- 5 bakers
- An oven 10 feet wide x 10 feet high
The cupcake, like the concert, will benefit a host of charities combating breast cancer, including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the American Cancer Society, the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, and the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. At 6 p.m., the cake will be sliced up and handed out for donations. Big Top founder Laurie Braden says creating the cupcake hits home for her, since a close friend of hers, Jeannie Doll, succumbed to breast cancer.
Tickets for the show are $30 and can be purchased here.
