Celebrated on November 26th
The world’s largest wedding cake weighed 6.818 tonnes (15,032 lb) and was made by chefs at the Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA and displayed at their New England bridal showcase on 8 February 2004.
The people at Elly’s Sweet Shop of Austin spent time breaking down their regular-sized pupcake recipe and reworking it to make sure that they didn’t sacrifice taste for size. The cake was made with dog-safe ingredients, baked at their bakery, and taken to the event where it was assembled, decorated and weighed. Their cake tipped the scales at 304 lbs. – making the previous “biggest dog cake” look like a cupcake!
You’re guaranteed to hear a rendition of “Happy Birthday to You” whenever a birthday cake is brought out. This song was written by two sisters from Kentucky, U.S.A., in 1893, Mildred and Patty Hill. Their original song “Good Morning to All” was first sung in Patty’s kindergarten class. It had the same tune as the birthday song you know, just with different words. As time went on, the song began to be sung in schools throughout Kentucky. Around 1910, the words of the song were changed to focus on birthdays. Of course, the melody stayed the same. The song soon became popular across the country, and it began to appear in movies and on the radio. It eventually reached the point where just about everyone knew it. Today, “Happy Birthday to You” is the most frequently sung song in the English language.
