Everything is bigger in Texas – and that includes dog cakes!
This weekend at the Mighty Texas Dog Walk in Austin, Texas a local bakery not only raised the bar for the Guinness World Record for Biggest Dog Cake, they SHATTERED the previous record!
Set by Petmania of Ireland just last year, the largest cake (before this) weighed 202 lbs. and served over 150 dogs. 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!
After they confirmed the weight, the cake was cut and served to the lucky pups in attendance. It made it into the Guinness Book of World Records, but did it pass the taste test?
Looks like the dogs approve!
