Duff Goldman, host of Ace of Cakes, puts the finishing touches on the world's largest cupcake.

Record holder: Duff Goldman
Location: Mall of America, Minneapolis

The Food Network's Duff Goldman lives up to his Ace of Cakes title by baking the largest cupcake in history — now entered in the Guinness Book of World Records. The 61.4-pound creation is more than a foot tall and entirely edible. Reportedly 150 times the size of a regular cupcake, this record-breaker called for 16 pounds of butter, 10 pounds of sugar, and three ounces of food coloring. The mammoth confection supported the Great American Bake Sale, which raised $10,000 and awareness for Share Our Strength, a charity working to fight hunger across America.

They took his title away. The cupcake was not baked correctly. It was made in sections instead of one whole piece.
