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 tons (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.
