Scooter’s Coffee has announced it is the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder for the World’s Largest Cake Ball, unveiling an approximately 848-pound, birthday-themed cake ball at the annual Scooter’s Coffee GROW Conference in Omaha, Nebraska on Thursday, March 23.
The Cake Ball, baked from scratch and assembled by employees from Scooter’s Coffee affiliated company Harvest Roasting, was served to more than 1,500 Scooter’s Coffee executives, employees, franchisees and coffee bean growers attending the company’s 25th birthday celebration.
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS official adjudicator Brittany Dunn attended the GROW Conference to certify the record. The cake ball weighed 384.75 kilograms, breaking the previous 628-pound record for the World’s Largest Cake Ball. It had eleven cake layers, each weighing between 15 to 100 pounds. 150 pounds of buttercream frosting and 50 festive birthday sprinkles, each weighing 2.5 ounces, were also added. Approximately 30 employees were involved in designing, baking and assembling the Cake Ball.
“Making the World’s Largest Cake Ball for our Scooter’s Coffee family demonstrates the fact that Scooter’s in-store bakery items are handmade from scratch at our affiliated company, Harvest Roasting, to offer fresh, delicious baked goods to customers across the Scooter’s Coffee 29-state footprint,” says Joe Thornton, president of Scooter’s Coffee, LLC.
690 pounds of dough were used to make the World’s Largest Cake Ball, which is 33 inches wide and 32 inches tall. 6,430 Scooter’s Coffee Cake Bites would fit inside it.
“Creating the World’s Largest Cake Ball is just another example of how our employees and franchisees are committed to innovation in creating amazing experiences for our customers every day as we continue to grow rapidly across the United States,” says Thornton.
“I’m proud of this team working seamlessly to accomplish an amazing goal of setting a new world record,” says Craig Stevenson, vice president, manufacturing at Harvest Roasting. “It’s a confirmation of who we are at Harvest Roasting and proves we can accomplish anything in the future.”
