If there's one thing that will get noticed on a university campus, it's a 4,000 pound brownie. 

McGill University whipped up the massive dessert to draw attention to the university's Fair Trade Campus designation. 

While it could be the largest ever baked, it won't break any official records. 

McGill's executive chef Oliver de Volpi told CBC's Daybreak it all comes down to how they constructed the tasty treat.
