Bakers In India Attempt Record For World's Longest Cake

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

And maybe you're regretting it now because bakers in the Indian city of Thrissur made the world's longest cake. A video shows it winding along festival grounds as rickshaws passed by. The previous record holder was a fruitcake in China nearly 2 miles long. Guinness World Records says this one in India was more than 3 miles. Even better, it had chocolate frosting. Yes.
