Stuff that Weighs More than Me: World's Biggest Cupcake

Normally we think of a cupcake as something sweet and diminutive.  Even cute.  But not THIS bad boy.  Introducing the World's largest cupcake recently unveiled in Detroit, Michigan.  (Thanks Kat for sharing it on FB--at least virtually.)  Just take a gander at this recipe:
serves a whole lot
200 lbs. sugar
200 lbs. flour
200 lbs. butter
800 eggs

Mix in a really, really big bowl and bake for over 12 hours or until giant toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool completely.  (This could take a while.)  Cover with a small mountain of custard and frosting.

Here's a few more stats:
Circumference: 11 ft.
Oven Door Size: 8ft. x 8ft.
Weight: 1,224 lbs.
Conclusion: The world's largest cupcake weighs more than me.  (It's probably a little sweeter than me, too!)
