KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 5 (UPI) -- A team at a Missouri cake festival said members broke a world record by getting their car -- made of mostly cake and confections -- up to 28 mph.

Carey Iennaccaro and her partner, Mike Elder, said their car had to be made of 95 percent edible materials and make it to at least 10 mph to break the Guinness World Record Sunday at KC CakeFest in Kansas City, the Kansas City (Mo.) Star reported Monday.

The pair said their car, which is edible save for the tires, aluminum chassis and brakes, made it up to 28 mph when Iennaccaro strapped on a helmet and drove it down Wyandotte Street.

The pair said they wanted to remove the public perception reality shows have created about cake bakeries being full of nastiness and bad attitudes.

"We're all a little fed up with how the world thinks we are cutthroat and negative," said Iennaccaro, assistant cake artist for the project and owner of Sprinkled With Sugar in Olathe. "We're all about having fun."
