  Oldest Wedding Cake: 113-year-old wedding cake sets world record 

 Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK -- A wedding cake, baked in 1898 when Queen Victoria was
ruling from the British throne, is still complete and moist , setting the world record for the Oldest Wedding Cake.

  The World's Oldest Wedding Cake which was baked 113 years ago has now got brown icing because the sugars have seeped through to the surface.

  It also has a crack in its side due to vibrations from a bomb blast during the second world war.

  But tests with a syringe have shown the rich fruit cake inside the ornate icing is still moist - although not edible!

  The Guinness world record for the Largest crab cake weighed 114.75 kg (253 lb) and was made by Special Olympics Maryland in conjunction with Handy International and Graul's Market (all USA) in Hampden, Maryland, USA.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the largest truffle cake: it weighed 1,041 kg (2,295 lb), and was made by the Asociacion de pasteleros de Burgos to celebrate the centenary of CAJA CIRCULO in Plaza España, Burgos, Spain.

  The four-tier cake was orginally displayed in a family bakery until it closed in 1964, then kept in an attic before being donated to the Willis Museum in Basingstoke, where it has just gone on show.

  Curator Sue Tapliss told Sky News: "The baker's daughter, who was unmarried, donated the cake towards the end of her life because she feared someone might discover it in her attic and think she had been jilted at the alter."

   She added: "Pieces of Queen Victoria's wedding cake were auctioned off, but this is the world's oldest complete one."

  Mrs Tapliss added: 'We hope that the cake can be enjoyed for a further 113 years.'
