Think it's easy to break a Guinness World Record?
No, it's definitely not a walk in the park. After all, they don't call them world records for nothing.
We're making this a party to remember. Our world record attempt? Only the biggest cupcake structure known to man, one that will be comprised of over 7,500 cupcakes.
We need help with putting this behemoth together, and that's where the stars of TLC's hit reality show "DC Cupcakes" come into the mix. Sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne will attempt to erect this giant pyramid of baked goods that will certainly send a person's sweet tooth into overdrive.
But there's lots of work to be done even before Saturday's attempt. First and foremost is getting the plans and specifications approved by the folks at Guinness.
And once those specs are in place, you've got to have the structure ready to go before the cupcakes are added. After all, this pyramid is going to stand over 19 feet tall, with 32 tiers.
Thankfully, we've got a great group of volunteers who have already begun work on this structure.
But what do they need?
Here's what was on the shopping list: 30 sheets of ¾- inch 4x8 OSB boards; 90 feet of 1 ½-inch round stock dowels; 88 6-feet long 4x4 posts; 20 8-feet long 6x6 posts; 88 square yards of 48 millimeter vinyl sheet linoleum; 700 feet of ¼-inch by 1 ½-inch pre-primed lattice; a four-gallon
bucket of sheet vinyl adhesive; six gallons of flat white paint; 1,200 ½-inch staples for a staple gun; 750 corrugated nails for the nail gun; and 1,300 2-inch drywall screws.
And this was just the first batch of supplies!
So, yes, this is a massive undertaking. And we want all of you to come out and see the completed product this Saturday. Information about the birthday party can be found by clicking here.
