The Guinness world record for the longest sushi roll measured 2,033.3 m (6,671 ft) and was achieved by The Liaison Council of Japanese Postal Workers' Union in Gunma Prefecture, Maebashi City, Japan.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the longest cabbage roll; it measured 15.37 meters (50 ft 5.12 in) and was prepared by the Centro Commerciale Naturale Incentrosettimo (Italy), in Setttimo Torinese, Italy.
The current Guinness World Record for the Largest cinnamon is 246.5 pounds and was set on Oct. 15, 2005, by Wayne Warren of House of Bread in Mill Creek, Wash.
Second Floor Bakery was actually doing the baking. The owner got involved in the project because she is a foster mother herself.
Elzinga and Volker construction company was involved by building special equipment to make the world record attempt.
The company made a special pan to hold the dough, a giant proof oven where the dough can rise, and altered the racks on Russ' oven to accomodate the one large cinnamon roll.
Sponsors included Elzinga Volkers Construction, Geenen DeKock Inc., and Russ' Commissary, who stand with Bethany to bring attention to adoption services in Holland.
Post adoption services can include support groups, counselling, and much more.
