Not only this, candles remained burning for about 40 seconds, ensuring that the previous record went up in flames. And finally that happens, previous record has broken. The sponge cake was filled with vanilla mousse and was 80.5-feet-long and two-foot-wide

Fire extinguisher was used to blew the candles

If the cake was giant and there were lot of candles on it so of course one cannot blew it. So the candles were put out with carbon dioxide fire extinguishers to ensure that the dessert was still edible afterwards. The wax was then scraped off and the party tucked into the enormous cake.
