History was made in Riverhead Thursday, as people at Tanger Outlet Centers across the U.S. — and 487 at the local mall — took part in the world’s largest dessert party. Exact numbers are not yet known but the 487 people in Riverhead were enough to break the previous record of 300.

Students in Suffolk County Community College’s Culinary Arts Department made 2,000 brownies, cupcakes and cookies for the event.

Thursday’s event will be entered in the Guinness Book of World Records.
