Battle of the Alamo Cake

For anyone who has every bashed on grocery store cake decorators, 

(it does happen, I've heard it from both professional cake decorators and uneducated clients),

 I have two words: 

Handy Andy

In 1960, the bakery staff of Handy Andy in San Antonio, Texas, put together a massive "Battle of the Alamo Cake" for the premier of John Wayne's movie "The Alamo". 

Thirty feet long, it weighed over 2,000 pounds, and served close to 10,000 people.

Right out of their grocery store bakery department.
