It's official. No one else has made a bigger crab cake.

Guinness World Records this month officially certified a cake of Maryland blue crab as holding the record for the world's biggest fishcake.

The giant delicacy was cooked in a 3-foot pan in October 2006 during the Diamond State BBQ Championship in Dover, Del. It weighed 235 pounds.

The cake was developed with the help of food processor Handy International Inc. of Salisbury, Md. Handy regional sales manager Jim Cupp says it took nine hours to cook and was later divided into 600 crab sandwiches.
