Prepare to be stunned by this gargantuan beauty

Guinness Book of World Records
Feast your eyes on the largest wedding cake on record.

Here at The Daily Meal, we love wedding cakes. From nerdy themed ones to gorgeous vintage ones,  we love the artistry and passion that goes into making these confectionary wonders. But never have we seen (and maybe never will again) a wedding cake of this proportion.

According to a representative from Guinness World Records, the world’s largest wedding cake ever displayed was baked by Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino’s chef Lynn Mansel and a team of 57 chefs and "pastry artisans" at a New England showcase in Uncasville, Conn. The cake itself weighed in at 6.818 tonnes (15.032 pounds) and had seven tiers — each of which took two forklift trucks to raise. If this cake were at a real wedding, it could have fed 59,000 people and evidently weighed more than a bull elephant. 

Its predecessors weighed in "only" at 5,334 pounds (made by Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla., on June 12, 2003) and 1,530 pounds (Serendipity 3 Restaurant and World of Chantilly at Serendipity Restaurant in New York on Feb.14, 2001).

No one has since broken chef Mansel and team’s 2004 record.
