Mammoth cupcake created, then consumed
Wilson Farm had a goal: Take more than 3,000 cupcakes, combine them, and serve the largest cupcake anyone in Lexington had ever seen.
Workers there spent Saturday concocting the confection, and by Sunday it was ready for all to enjoy at the farm’s strawberry celebration.
It followed last year’s event in which employees created the world’s largest strawberry shortcake. They held the record for about a month, until a larger one was created in Sweden.
“We weren’t shooting for a world record this year, we were just shooting to make a massive cupcake,” said Christopher Previte, Wilson Farm’s promotion manager.
Not even Sunday’s thunderstorms could deter dessert-seekers from visiting the farm. Previte said about 5,500 people attended the event.
