Everybody loves cakes, at least most of us do! We like them, chocolatey, gooey, nutty, the works! However, have you heard about the tallest and the biggest cakes ever? There are some as tall as a short building.
These are the ultimate cakes that not only satisfy your tastebuds but also captures your heart. We mean, just looking at a cake as tall as that can be the ultimate experience, the eye candy we all want. So, let’s find out about some of those cakes that can be termed as the tallest cakes.
The Largest Cake Sculpture
The Largest Cake Sculpture was made by 300 Italian pastry chefs, who made this desert version copy of their country that went on weighing 2205 pounds and whose size was around 18×15 yd. They sprinkled on powdered sugar over the base sponge cake, and it looked like a delectable concoction.
The bakers maintained the landscape exactly and the map has decorated the map with small figurines representing the tourists mapping that area. The tiny details made the cake extra sumptuous and delectable. The cake went on to be auctioned in Milan. The cake was later cut into 12 thousand pieces and we are sure the attendees devoured the cake.
The Highest Tiered Cake
Do you like tired cakes? Then you would love this even more as it is the highest-tiered cake you may have ever heard of. This cake was baked way back in the Indonesian capital in 2008. It was baked by the students of the Hakasima-Nilasari culinary school and wowed the guests at the Wonderful Christmas festival guests.
The cake weighed all of 44 thousand pounds and it was 36 yards in height. However, we don’t know much about the baking technique. The cake was so tall that it could hardly fit inside the camera.
The Tallest Victoria Sponge Cake
A baker from Dorset crafted one of the world’s largest cake: a five-foot-wide, 50 stone Victoria Sponge. Steve Oxford, baked the cake being a part of the Sturminster Newton cheese festival.
The creation of the cake had ingredients such as 700 eggs, 500 lbs of flour, and similar proportions of butter and sugar. The cake was baked in an industrial oven. A forklift truck was used to bring the cake out of the open. We don’t know how this cake hailed from a cheese festival, but we are sure the cake was surely a scene-stealer!
The Tallest Cake From Luoyang, China
While we are discussing scrumptious cakes we cannot ignore the one from China. There were as many as 20 chefs who took more than 1 day to bake the gorgeous cake at the shopping center in Luoyang, right in the middle of China’s Henan Province.
The cake had 8 layers. The 8-meter tall cake weighed around 2000kg. The huge cake included used ingredients such as 260 kg of four, 500kg of eggs, 200kg of cream, 80kg of chocolate, and 100kg of fruit! Whew! that sounds like a lot of ingredients.
The Tallest Cake from Italy
The Longest Cake made by The D.A.F. pastry chefs, living in the Italian town Trofarello, made news by baking 33,01 yards cake. It consisted of 15 thousand pounds layers of sponge cake, custard, and layers of whipped cream.
The bakers had to do away with the height of the cake. We understand how else would they carry the cake from one place to another? We guess they cut the cake right there and then and distributed it all over!
The Cake From India
Records are meant to be broken and hence 1500 bakers and chefs from South India baked a cake that was at least 17,388 ft tall and arguably it is the world’s longest cake to date.
The vanilla cake had chocolate ganache frosting and spread across thousands of tables and desks on a festival ground and the adjacent roads in the city of Thrissur (coastal state of Kerala). As per reports, the cake was ten centimeters wide and thick and you would be stunned to know that it weighed 27,000 kilograms!
The bakers put their heads together and spent four hours baking the humongous cake. They used 12,000 kg of sugar and flour to bake the cake. The event organized by Bakers Association Kerela (BAKE) attracted huge crowds.
Well, these are some of the tallest cakes we heard about and some of them even made into the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records. No mean feat that!
