Special thanks to Yoshi’s Sweets, Cake Star and the Guy Who Bakes for their help with our Guinness World Record Challenge:



Guinness World Record Layer Cake Challenge




Friday, July 1, 2011
Zone 6
235 Queens Quay West, Toronto Ontario

UPDATE: We did it! Harbourfront Centre and its lead summer partner, The Toronto Port Authority, are proud to announce that the final layer count of our Canada Day layer cake was 255! This breaks the previous record of 230 layers set by Jayn Parenti on July 4, 2006 in Springdale, Arkansas. Click here to read the official press release.   


In celebration of our country’s 144th birthday, Harbourfront Centre is aiming to set a Guinness World Record with one gigantic birthday cake.   

With help from Yoshi’s Sweets we will attempt to set the record for “Most Layers in a Layer Cake” with a giant, towering, 300-layer cake!  Come on out on the festival day to cheer us on!

The cake will be assembled from 10am-5pm and then judged by officials. 

Cake will be sliced and served from 5:30-7:00 during our Longo’s Friday Picnic.
