I've always thought of a cupcake as a smaller version of a regular cake, and then a mini-cupcake is, well, even smaller. But if a "cupcake" is GIANT SIZED, can you still really call it a cupcake? What's the requirement for being a cupcake anyway? (And I mean the baked confection kind, not the endearing pet name kind.)
In any case, a gigantoid cupcake has been deemed the new world's record, coming in at a whopping 1,224 pounds. Vanilla cupcake seems kind of boring to me, but at least they turned it into a worthy fundraiser.
Can you imagine what the cupcake tin must have looked like???????? ;)
