<< Prev 1 of 2 Next >>

Alta Lift Truck Services joined & Jensen Industries in supporting the Susan G. Komen’s Passionately Pink for the Cure, when the world’s largest cupcake was unveiled and inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records during the Woodward Dream Cruise.
The cupcake was created by a team led by famed baker George Algarin in a six foot by six foot oven at Jensen Industries and transported to the Woodward Dream Cruise where it was unveiled in the Kroger parking lot.  

The cupcake itself was 4' tall, 10' in diameter and weighed 1,224 lbs and required a week of prep, and twenty-four hours of baking.  The Yale rental forklift which is being donated by Alta to assist in the transport is a Yale GLP155CA and can move loads up to 15,000 pounds.
With a donation to the Susan G. Komen for the cure, participants can try a piece of the cupcake or have their picture taken.  All proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen’s Passionately Pink for the Cure.

"Alta is proud to participate in this event and is confident it will be a successful fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen Foundation,” said Steven Greenawalt, owner of Alta Lift Truck Services.  “We are even encouraging our local employees to stop by and try a piece."
