Krispy Kreme Wedding Cake Record

POST #    1399

I thought the West Coast had healthy people. Apparently not. Out in Issaquah, WA, they made a 5'3" wedding cake (that's taller than some people!) out of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The doughnut mountain was made out of 1,818 doughnuts and was a whopping 363,600 calories of wedding cake. To see them topping off the cake, click here. The base of the cake was 170 doughnuts, but I'm curious how the light and fluffy Krispy Kreme doughnuts at the bottom but were not crushed by the weight of the doughnuts above.

As much as I love Krispy Kreme, I'm not sure I would do this for a wedding cake...although, it is cheaper.

Woaah. That's as tall as me. That cake is way cooler than anything I've ever made.

maybe, we should build one, but put both of you inside the "cake" and you can try to eat yourselves out! how much fun would that be. not necessarily for the people eating though.

Damn it'd be cool to dive head first into it and take a bite as you land. Hummmm donuts...

I'd hate to be the person who got the doughnuts from the bottom layer.

Holy Krispy Kreme! I think the definition of the word "cake" has officially been redefined. Did they have serve boxed dessert wine to go with it?

i am one inch taller than that cake? can i still try to get inside it?

Good plan, Tien. Then, when I'm eating my way out and have a heart attack and die, you'll have a 5'3" tall person, 300,000 calories left of donuts, and a big mess to deal with. It would probably make for good pictures though.

well, i think we can try to cram more people in by building an even bigger one!!

and youngna, we can just do bypass surgeries on the spot.

My wedding cake was so expensive that I can truly understand using the Krispy Kremes instead. One puts a hurting on your wallet, the other on your waistline.

Can you really call this a cake? It's a pile of donuts. Did they put a little bride and groom at the top?

Your mom will be upset when you request this as a wedding cake.
