MINNEAPOLIS (AP)A 151-pound cupcake in Minneapolis has been certified as the world’s largest. The 1-foot tall, 2-foot wide cupcake on display Saturday at the Minneapolis Mall of America had 15 pounds of fudge filling and 60 pounds of yellow icing. The cupcake was made by cakes.com, which is run by cake-decoration supplier and marketer DecoPac.

I gotta be honest here, I was looking for a more impressive story upon seeing the headline. If you are going to set a Guinness World Record, you should go big or go home. When I thought of the world’s largest cupcake I was thinking at least 6 feet tall. Though 151 pounds is noteworthy, I was looking for something more grandiose.

The truth of the matter is that this was nothing more than a publicity stunt for Cakes.com. Their “cupcake” was nothing more than a slightly oversized “cake.” You don’t see other companies making lame accomplishments from miniature versions of their products…The World’s largest M&M mini…roughly the size of a Peanut M&M!

How could I post this story without including the video from everyone’s favorite chubby cup cake kid…
