Pastry chef JodiLee Knops celebrates setting the Guinness record for the world's largest cupcake at the Mall of America in Minneapolis on Saturday. It 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.

MINNEAPOLIS — A 151-pound cupcake in Minneapolis has been certified as the world's largest.

The cupcake, which measured 1 foot tall and 2 feet wide, was on display Saturday at the Mall of America in Minneapolis and had 15 pounds of fudge filling and 60 pounds of yellow icing.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Danny Girton Jr. called it a "fun and creative achievement."

The cupcake was made by cakes.com, which is run by cake-decoration supplier and marketer DecoPac.

Company spokeswoman Jamie Miller said the giant cupcake will go to a pig farm. The company decided against giving away pieces to mall patrons because most would not have had frosting.

Instead, cakes.com gave away 4,000 smaller cupcakes.
