A group of about 100 people in New York broke a world record earlier this year for most lit candles on a birthday cake.

The team lit 72,585 candles at once on a cake and it was good enough to break the World Record! The cake was reportedly 80 feet long.

The team used blow torches to light all of the candles and by rule the candles had to remain lit for 40 seconds. 

Luckily the team didn't have to blow all of these candles out. They actually used fir extinguishers to put out this "fire." So the next time you have trouble lighting the candles on a birthday cake, remember this video.
