Authorities with Guinness World Records have officially certified a world record crab cake that was developed with the help of Salisbury food processor Handy International Inc.

The giant fish cake was cooked in a three-foot rotisserie-style pan in October 2006 during the 2006 Diamond State BBQ Championship in Dover, Del. When finished, it weighed in at 235 pounds.

Handy's regional sales manager, Jim Cupp, teamed with Dover Downs Hotel Chef Fred Bohn for the record breaking attempt. He says the crab cake took nine hours to cook and the giant cake was later divided into 600 crab sandwiches.
