TWO DUDES, A BAKER AND AN OVEN MAKER = Guinness Record Cupcake And Raises Money For Susan G. Komen’s Passionately Pink For The Cure

On August 15th, 2009, GourmetGiftBaskets.com broke the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Cupcake. In doing so, GourmetGiftBaskets.com may have put a definitive end to the “Cupcake Wars” that have been raging in the gourmet food community for the last two years. The cupcake most recently crowned “The World’s Largest Cupcake” on July 20, 2009 for a cupcake weighed in at only 151 pounds, and stood just one foot tall by two feet wide. The GourmetGiftBaskets.com cupcake dealt a crushing blow to all previous record attempts, weighing in at 1,224 lbs (555-kilograms)! Will this Cupcake Record stand the test of time? Good luck to anyone trying to break it! It certainly was a whole lotta cupcake!...

Video update - "Cupcake for the Cure" going into the oven.

Into The Oven!

It’s been a ton of work!
(perhaps even a couple of tons)
The World Record Cupcake is going in the oven!

We are “can do” people...

We started off with a goal of a 7,000 pound cupcake but fate intervened on Friday morning when the baking was supposed to be complete. The huge 8 by 8 foot oven was opened and we found that the weight of the expanding batter crushed one of the main convection tubes blowing hot air into the heart of the cupcake causing the batter to separate, liquefy and crush the center of the cupcake from the inside out. With only 24 hours left until the official weigh-in, the brilliant baking crew went into overdrive creating a new, customized mold and fresh batch of batter using an estimated 200 pounds of flour, 200 pounds of sugar, 200 pounds of butter and oil and 1,000 eggs
