Watch Beverly Hills Eat Itself in About One Minute

Last week, Beverly Hills celebrated its centennial birthday in much in the fashion that many would expect from the lavish and showy town. To be fair, it was a big birthday, so that kind of warrants a 15,000-slice, 4,000-pound birthday cake that recreated the City Hall tower and Rodeo Drive. Did we mention that the replica of the tower and Rodeo Drive was on Rodeo Drive? According to a release, the ten-foot-tall, 20-foot-long cake was the centerpiece of the block party the city threw itself, and likely destroyed many a diet. Attests a rep for the event, "It was all gone in 2 hours."
