More cake, anyone?

Published: Jul 2020

It’s been a while since our last cake-centric piece, so we thought we’d catch up on the world of record-breaking bakes. This newest one comes from New Zealand.

Another Guinness World Record has been broken in the baking world, as the Cook’s Night Off charity, based in Auckland, New Zealand, created a giant chocolate lamington (a spongey layered dessert).

Using approximately 13,000 eggs, nearly 650kg of sugar and 500kg of flour, the cake was layered with chocolate and coconut. The creation coincided with World Lamington Day, and weighed in at a whopping 2770kg!

It broke the previous record set in 2011, by Australian bakery Quality Desserts and the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce, by around 500kg.

Some of the lamington was distributed to spectators, whilst the rest will be donated to the Auckland City Mission for distribution.
