MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A cupcake that weighs as much as a person has been certified as the world’s largest.

Guinness World Records certified the hefty pastry Saturday at the Minneapolis Mall of America.

The super-sized snack weighed in at nearly 151 pounds, including 15 pounds of fudge filling and 60 pounds of yellow icing. It was one foot tall and two feet wide.

Guinness adjudicator Danny Girton Jr. calls the heavyweight dessert a “fun and creative achievement.”

The cupcake was made by cakes.com, which is run by DecoPac. The Minneapolis-based parent company calls itself the world?s largest cake-decoration supplier and marketer.

Company spokeswoman Jamie Miller calls the record “a thrill and an honor.”
