Cloquet, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Black Bear Casino Resort in Cloquet unveiled, quite possibly, the largest cake in Northland history today in celebration of the casino's 20th anniversary.

The cake measures 10 by 6-feet and weighs 12- hundred pounds.
"How Sweet It Is Bakery" in downtown Duluth created the cake featuring a black bear and Duluth scenery, taking on their largest cake project ever.

The bakery has been working on the cake for the past 45 days and made a few final touches this week.

Monica DeCaro, Project Manager for the 20th anniversary event, says the cake is one of a kind in the Northland.

"I don't think this has ever been done in this area. I haven't seen anything like this. We want to do something for our guests, something exciting," said DeCaro.

Black Bear Casino handed out free t-shirts and cupcakes to guests who attended the 20th anniversary event.
