Each of the cupcakes weighed about 70 g and the entire weight of the cupcakes alone was to a hefty 1.3 tonnes. It is a mandate that all the food-related world records cannot have the food going to waste. So Preethi Kitchen Appliances distributed all the cupcakes to NGO’s. 10,000 cupcakes were given to Kakkum Karangal, an organisation in Chennai that cares for the homeless, from the elderly to children.
