World's Largest Cupcake Revealed At Woodward Dream Cruise

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.

The prospect of an oversized cupcake was intriguing at first, but then I started to wonder... at what point does it cease to be a cupcake, and become just a cake? Would it still hold the record if it was considered a cake, or has there been a larger cake baked at some point?

I'm sorry, but I have to dispute this cake's credentials as a cupcake. They have, in fact made a large cake shaped like a cupcake.

It's still kinda neat. It's just not a cupcake.
