From the Email Inbox - New World's Largest Cupcake

Record holder: Duff Goldman


Location: Mall of America, Minneapolis


March 30, 2008


The Food Network's Duff Goldman lives up to his Ace of Cakes title by baking the largest cupcake in history — now entered in the Guinness Book of World Records. The 61.4-pound creation is more than a foot tall and entirely edible. Reportedly 150 times the size of a regular cupcake, this record-breaker called for 16 pounds of butter, 10 pounds of sugar, and three ounces of food coloring. The mammoth confection supported the Great American Bake Sale, which raised $10,000 and awareness for Share Our Strength, a charity working to fight hunger across America.

Duff is the best! Who else combines pyrotechnics, power tools, cake and all of their friends to come up with a successful business. Glad to see him on your blog!

There were a few "That's not a Cup Cake!!" comments on the original posting, because they thought this was just too big and a cupcake should be a single serving... They have no appreciation for hutzpah!
