Taipei, May 7 (CNA) A hotel and a culinary school in Taipei on Thursday jointly created a roll cake measuring 268.69 meters in length, breaking the world record for the longest roll cake set by Japan at 140.62 meters in the Guinness Book of World Records, according to a hotel spokesman.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Taipei, in collaboration of Kaiping Culinary High School, spent more than one year studying how to make a roll cake with ingredients including raspberry, taro paste and pineapple that is long enough while maintaining its perfect curve, the spokesman said.
The record breaking cake was made with 86 kg of taro butter and raspberry jam, 164 kg of pineapple and 20 kg of chocolate by a team of chefs from the hotel and 35 students from the school. The process was witnessed by an official adjudicator for a new Guinness Book of World Records record in the Greater China region. [FULL STORY]
