MANCHESTER, CT (WFSB) -

Students at Manchester High School will attempt to break a world record this week with the help of a big sweet tooth.

The teenagers hope to break the Guinness Book of World Records by holding the world's largest outdoor dessert party.

High school seniors Lindsay Patterson and Philip Quaye began baking as part of a mini challenge of getting more students interested in the spring sports pep rally by baking like never before.

The sugar cookies will be wheeled out to the football field next Thursday in an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Record for the world’s largest outdoor dessert party.

The record is currently held by a group in Hong Kong.

Several local companies are donating a few hundred desserts to get them the edge.

There are about 1,000 cookies that have been baked by the students.

The goal, with donations as well, is to get over 1,300. That would give them a world record for the world’s largest dessert party.

The pep rally will be held next Thursday at Manchester High School at 1 p.m.
