The Guinness Book of World Records just delivered the award for the world's largest baked cupcake here at the Woodward Dream Cruise. The confection tipped the scales at 1500lb and had to be carried by forklift.

As belligerently large as the cupcake is, it was originally planned as a 7 foot tall, 6 foot diameter, 7000lb monster, unfortunately the cake collapsed upon itself as it was baking, and a new one in much less ambitious dimensions had to be made overnight. Money went to Susan B. Komen breast cancer awareness funds.
