Over 1,800 names counted at ‘dessert party’ world record attempt

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Organizers of the Hannibal attempt at the world's largest dessert party estimated over 1,800 people came out Saturday night to try and break the world record for the largest 'dessert party',

Organizers had people sign up for the attempt, then handed out cupcakes to each participant.

Organizers said the previous world record for most people having dessert in the same place at the same time was around 1,500 people.

"Then we will submit all of our evidence to Guinness, [including] video, photo, all kinds of documentation, and it'll take awhile for them to review our evidence, make sure we actually did break the record, but we feel like we probably got there," volunteer coordinator McKenzie Disselhorst said.

Organizers said it could take a few months before they know if they broke the record for sure.
