The Biggest Chocolate Crepe Cake consisted
of 120 pounds of flour, 140 eggs, 80 liters of milk, 80 pounds
of chocolate, 40 pounds of bananas and an equal measure of
Nancy Tratta, visiting from Braddock, said the
dessert tasted as good as it looked. "It melts in your mouth.
It's light. It's fluffy. It's excellent," she said.
Gus Kazakos built the tower by stacking individually
made crepes the size and shape of pizzas on top of each other
- all 510 of them.
The Biggest Chocolate Crepe Cake have been
taller yet, but Kazakos decided not to add the last 20 crepes
to his wobbly masterpiece "The chocolate started melting,"
he said. "I was afraid we'd lose the whole thing."
As a finishing touch, Kazakos stood on a picnic
table and emptied a can of whipped cream atop it. Then he
engaged in a whipped-cream fight with his daughter.
"Crepes - me and my family, we love them. They're
so good," he said.
"Anybody hungry?" he asked the crowd? Kazakos
sliced the Biggest Chocolate Crepe Cake into pizza-shaped
slices and served them to visitors.
