|The Mall of America will celebrate its 20th birthday with tons of good eats on August 11.|
On August 11, 1992, the Mall of America first swung open its doors and became the nation's largest retail and entertainment complex, changing Minnesota forever.
Now, on this August 11, the behemoth mall will celebrate its 20th birthday with plenty of free eats, including a custom-made cake by Buddy Valastro, star of the hit TLC show Cake Boss
The cake is an 8-by-4-foot, three-dimensional "model" of the inside of the mall. It was made with more than 50 pounds of flour, 450 eggs, and 250 pounds of fondant, and it took four days and seven people to create, according to MOA spokesperson Bridget Jewell.
