To celebrate John Lennon's birthday -- he would have been 75 on October 9th -- a New York bakery created this massive, record-breaking cupcake installation in Central Park.

The Central Park cupcake mosaic incorporated 40,000 cupcakes, breaking the previous Guinness World Record for cupcakes used in an art piece, which stood at 33,660. The design displayed a tie-dye peace sign on a vanilla cupcake background, with chocolate cupcakes spelling out the word "imagine."

John Lennon's birthday cupcakes were the work of 'Baked by Melissa,' a SoHo bakery whose founder was inspired by the care-free attitude of the 60s and the 70s to pursue her passion of creating desserts. This record-breaking mosaic in honor of John Lennon's birthday was Melissa's way of giving back to a musician who was an icon of the movement she so admired.
