New York, NY (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
Baked by Melissa, the New York City bakery famous for its bite-size cupcakes, successfully constructed the World’s Largest Cupcake Art Mosaic. The spread was constructed in Central Park in front of the iconic Bethesda Fountain and was made up of 40,000 cupcakes that formed a tie-dye peace sign. The cupcake display measured in at over 25 x 25 feet! Measurements were taken by independent professionals and will be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records. The record is currently held at 30,400 cupcakes.
This exciting venture was in collaboration with Yoko Ono and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus to commemorate John Lennon's 75th Birthday on Friday, October 9th. It was a historic day that celebrated a music icon and activist who has played such an important role in Baked by Melissa's DNA. Melissa Ben-Ishay said, "Coming together to build a giant 40,000 cupcake tie-dye peace sign, in honor of John Lennon's birthday made this one of Baked by Melissa's most magical days yet."
As part of Baked by Melissa's partnership with the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, Baked by Melissa is offering an exclusive Imagine Gift Box, which is currently being sold on bakedbymelissa.com for nationwide shipping until October 10th.
