Biggest Cupcake: Lamest Guinness Record Ever?
But the reason this is a lame record is that it's doomed to defeat. Consider that the previous recordholder was this one, presented at a car show in Royal Oak, Michigan, on August 16. The 1,224-pound cupcake spent just six weeks in the Guinness Book of World Records. (Video of that cupcake after the jump.)
Plus, this is a category that has seen an arms race of sorts. Consider that just 18 months ago, a 61-pound cupcake was awarded the Guinness record. And just three months ago, the record-holder was a mere 151 pounds. Sorry, Big Top -- at this rate, we'll have the world's first one-ton cupcake before the new year.
