A three-ton wedding cake?

1 January 1970

Life is a piece of cake, they say, but a cake in Baguio City seemed larger than life.

The three-ton chocoloate wedding cake was unveiled--and sliced--during the Thursday opening of the 9th Annual Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Weekend in the city up north.

President Benigno Aquino III in a statement said the event "complements our movement to promote our country through our 'It's more fun in the Philippines' campaign."
