Romanian bakers bake worlds heaviest cake weighing 619 poundsDecember 29th, 2008 - 2:10 pm ICT by ANI
London, December 29 (ANI): Bakers in Bucharest decorated a new page in Guiness Book of World Records for baking the world’’s heaviest cake, weighing 619 pounds.
The fruit-and-cream cake, adorned with the Romanian and European Union flags along with reading Happy New Year 2009, had been commissioned by the capital for the annual winter festivities.
A representative for the annually published reference book handed out a document to Mayor Sorin Oprescu certifying the accomplishment, reports the Telegraph.
Hundreds of city residents then grabbed a bite of the tiered cake, including many children, who had come to feast their eyes on the gigantic treat.
The record came after two other bids for the longest sausage and biggest Christmas give-away.
Bucharest set a record for the worlds biggest-ever Christmas give-away, after 3,939 people dressed like Father Christmas to distribute gifts to children in the streets.
The city further claimed the title for the worlds longest smoked sausage, measuring 1,286 feet long and weighing over 330 pounds. (ANI)
