Birthday Cake -- Fun Facts
The largest birthday cake, according to the Guinness World Book of Records, was made at the Cashman Center in Las Vegas. In May 2005, a cake was made for Las Vegas' centennial (100th) birthday. The cake weighed approximately 130,000 pounds! This cake took over 1,000 volunteers 14 hours to assemble and decorate this cake. Over 30,000 individual slab cakes were used to make the whole cake. In order to qualify for the Guinness world record for the 'largest birthday cake made' one of the conditions is that the cake has to be completely frosted i.e. no joint or part of the cake can be visible. In order to accomplish this 40,000 pounds of icing was used to cover this huge cake. An additional qualifier for the world record was for the cake to be made 100% edible. The real question is what happened to all that cake?! All the volunteers took home pieces of the cake, which in reality was the size of a normal slab cake.
