MEXICO CITY Mexico has long been known for tacos and tequila - but cheesecake?

Chef Miguel Angel Quezada says 55 cooks spent 60 hours making the world's biggest cheesecake - a 2-ton calorie bomb topped with strawberries.

The monster cake used nearly a ton of cream cheese, the same amount of yogurt, 350 kilograms (772 pounds) of pastry, 250 kilograms (551 pounds) of sugar and 150 kilograms (331 pounds) of butter.

Carlos Martinez of Guinness World Records declared the cheesecake the world's largest on Sunday at an event sponsored by Kraft Foods, maker of Philadelphia cream cheese.

There wasn't much competition. Guinness had no previous record for cheesecakes.

Organizers gave out 20,000 slices around Mexico City.

I don't understand the need to "fight" for records in 'Guinness Book' (http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com) - largest cake, largest sandwich, largest omelette, and many many more "odd" records like - 'Most tattooed person', 'Furthest Eyeball Popper'.

mmmm...I'm not fighting for any record, but here's my cupcakes...hehehe...
