The Guinness World Records world record for the largest cupcake mosaic measures 138.56 m² (1,491.44 ft²) and was made by THE SPAR GROUP (PTY) LTD (South Africa), in Durban, South Africa, on 5 September 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest cupcake; it weighs 1,176.6 kg (2,594 lb) and was achieved by Georgetown Cupcake (USA) at Georgetown Cupcake’s national shipping headquarters in Sterling, Virginia, USA, on 2 November 2011.
Thousands of spectators came to see the cupcake tower and join in festivities, which continued into the evening. Cupcakes sold at a dozen for a dollar and raised about $2,000 for the American Cancer Society.
The project was run by Team Beep Beep, a participant in the Relay for Life of Escondido, which supports the American Cancer Society and brings together community members to encourage cancer survivors and honor those who have fought cancer.
On April 29, the Wafi Mall in Dubai became the most recent Guinness World Record holder for the tallest cupcake tower, which stood at 8 meters, or just over 26-feet, and contained about 8,000 cupcakes.
