MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – The December 30 wedding of film stars Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera was undoubtedly the wedding of the year by Philippine standards — extravagant, pompous and star-studded. Their Seven Million-peso, 12-foot wedding cake even made international headlines. It, however, failed to break the current Guinness World Record for the largest wedding cake.
But that was 2014. It is now 2015, and another Filipino Royal Wedding is coming up soon. February 15, 2015 to be exact.
It is the wedding of Philippines Senator Chiz Escudero and actress Heart Evangelista. The couple got engaged last August 23 and are scheduled to tie the knot the day after Valentine’s at Balesin Island Club.
All eyes, are of course, on the couple’s wedding cake. How will it compare to the Dantes-Rivera cake, and more importantly, will it break the current Guinness record?
The world’s largest wedding cake on record weighed 6.818 tonnes (15,032 lb) and was made by chefs at the Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA and displayed at their New England bridal showcase on 8 February 2004.
The Adobo Chronicles has learned that the couple has chosen a cake designer. While the design and dimensions of the cake remain secret, we can confirm who has been commissioned to do the baking and designing honors. Her name is Judy Uson. Read more about this celebrity cake designer and chef in the online magazine Positively Filipino.
Whether or not the cake will make it to the Guinness World Records remains to be seen. Stay tuned.
