Goliath Gets Married? It takes the Cake!

Well, I don’t know who’s wedding cake this actually belongs to, but my guess is that it had to be Goliath! Who else would need a 7-layer cake that’s 17 feet tall and weighs an astonishing 15,032 pounds? Yep, it’s for Goliath, alright. Surprisingly beautiful, the detail is amazing. Frosted with swirls and intricate “lace” patterns, I’d love to see the cake pan these layers were made in! This colossal cake gets the prize for size and holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest wedding cake.

The bakers at the Mohegan Sun casino had the pleasure of serving this one up for the New England Bridal Showcase. According to Wedding Wire, “the ingredients include: 10,000 pounds of pound cake batter and 4,810 pounds of creamy frosting with a taste of vanilla and almond. Comparatively speaking, the cake weighs more than five Volkswagen Beetles.” Pastry chef Lynn Mansel and his talented staff are definitely the Ace of Cakes in my book. Able to feed 59,000 guests, it must have been quite the shindig. I mean really, if you have to get on a cherry picker to put on the wedding cake topper, what would you use to cut it–a military sabre?! Good luck with that!

Although, we’ve got a super selection of wedding cake accessories and cake toppers, I don’t think we have anything that can quite top this super-sized cake. It’s definitely a custom job. But, if you’re having a non-mega-sized cake at your wedding, My Wedding Favors is the place where you can find some great cake knives, servers and toppers, like these:
