AUSTIN — The Mighty Texas Dog Walk tackled a Guinness World Record for the World's Largest Cake for Dogs with a titanic treat.
A local team of professional bakers were the masters behind designing, baking and assembling the dog treat. Service Dogs, Inc. revealed the gargantuan cake at their 19th Annual Mighty Texas Dog Walk on March 24. Once the cake was weighed, it was served to hundreds of dogs in attendance.
In order to win this world record, the cake needed to weigh more than 200.38 pounds, which is the current Largest Cake for Dogs held by Petmania of Ireland.
The cake weighed in at 304.73 pounds. Local pastry chefs used 72 cans of dog food, 35 pounds of kibble, 17 dozen eggs and whipped up a special mashed potato frosting so Austin’s dogs could have their cake and eat it, too.
A taste testing took place on March 7 with a smaller prototype of the cake at Juliet's Italian Kitchen's dog-friendly deck. The chefs will pore over the results and adjust the recipe accordingly.
This is the seventh time Mighty Texas Dog Walk has broken a Gunniess World Record.
