French Strawberry Cake Breaks World Record

When the strawberry festival comes to town in France, there’s no better way to celebrate than to make one of the most famous French desserts…and now this French strawberry cake is known as the world’s longest.

Five professional pastry chefs came together to make the cake that took hours to put together.

The final product was a record breaking 105-foot long cake.

We’re talking about 720 eggs, 300 egg yolks, 59 pounds of sugar, 66 pounds of wheat flour and wait for it… 440 pounds of strawberries.

A Guinness World records official even flew from London to judge the cake. Once the record was confirmed, the cake was put to good use.

The sections were split up and sold at the festival with all the money raised going to charity.
