SINGAPORE - Everyone loves cupcakes! They are delicious. Singapore decided to celebrate its 47th birthday with 20,000 of them. The colourful cakes were arranged like a pair of hands in a heart shape, with the city's national flag in the middle.

The previous record for a cupcake mosaic was 5,900. It took more than 18 hours to bake all the cupcakes, using almost 600kg of cake mixture, 350kg of eggs and 300kg of vegetable oil.
