Kovalam/Jaipur, Dec 25 (ANI): The Uday Samudra Leisure Resort in Kovalam has claimed to set a world record with 29.1-feet tall Christmas cake.
With this we have broken the previous record of 27.6 feet held by Mercury Hotel in Bangkok, said Rajgopal Iyer, the Corporate Director of the resort.
Ten chefs worked eight hours a day for three weeks to bake the gigantic cake weighing around 2500 kilograms, Iyer said.
The cake was cut down into 22,000 pieces, and distributed among charity homes in the city.
The previous best was only 19,212 pieces, Iyer added.
We wanted to mark the Christmas celebration innovative and interesting. We also wanted to create two world records before completion of this year,” said Iyer.
The hotel also broke a world record for the worlds tallest sandwich, a few months back.
Meanwhile, hotels and restaurants across the country have invited international bands and singers to woo customers on this festive occasion.
A Jaipur hotel flew in a band from Ukraine to cash in on the yuletide spirit.
Presently, Indian entertainment scene demands more. Indian bands are no longer enough. They (customers) want variety in good music and rock bands. The Ukraine-band is the seventh in continuity,” said Manmohan Singh, Manager, Park Plaza Hotel, Jaipur. (ANI)
