A pyramid-shaped collection of pastries assembled at a mall in India broke a Guinness World Record for the tallest tower of cupcakes.

Preethi Kitchen Appliances and Food Consulate Chennai teamed up to bake 18,818 cupcakes as assemble them into a tower measuring 41 feet, 8 inches tall at the Forum Vijya Mall in Chennai.



The cupcakes, which were all made on-site, took about 30 hours to cook and arrange on the pyramid structure.

A Guinness adjudicator was present during the attempt and a surveyor was brought in to use laser triangulation to verify the height of the structure.

The cupcakes were distributed to various charities after the record was certified.
