Made by Karen Portaleo of Highland Bakery this is very, very impressive cake work indeed, and weighing in at over 200 pounds it is definitely the world’s largest octopus shaped food. But I have not made it number 1 because it is just too much, most of us could only dream of having cake making skills this good, but that still doesn’t stop it be jaw dropping good.
