 Largest hot cross bun: RSPB Saltholme set world record (Video)

 
SALTHOLME, UK--The RSPB have unveiled a giant hot cross bun at its Saltholme wildlife reserve; measuring a massive 8ft and weighing a whopping 169 kg, it sets
the new world record for the Largest hot cross bun, according to World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

  The Guinness world record for the largest hot cross bun weighed 103 kg (227.08 lb) and was made by SAFARI Dried Fruit and SASKO Bakeries (both South Africa) in Cape Town, South Africa.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest rabbit made of chocolate; it weighed 3,010 kg (6,635 lb 91 oz) and was made by Duracell South Africa in Sandton City, Gauteng, South Africa.

  The Saltholme reserve, a beautiful wetland retreat in the heart of Teesside, hosted the grand unveiling of the record-breaking bun, after it was transported from Greenhalgh's bakery in Bolton, the only bakery in the UK with an oven big enough to accommodate the giant tin.
  
  Weighing the equivalent of 2,300 regular hot cross buns, the World's Largest Hot Cross Bun was baked in a custom-made tin that is due to be reused as a birdbath at the RSPB's headquarters once local residents have eaten the Easter treat.

  A hot cross bun is a sweet, spiced bun made with currants or raisins and marked with a cross on the top which is traditionally eaten on Good Friday. 

  The bun took a team of five professional bakers a whole day to prepare and make, with over 65 kg of flour and enough currants to stretch to the top of Nelson's column if laid out.

  Ben Calvert, Visitor and Promotions Officer at RSPB Saltholme, said: "We weren't sure we were going to be able to pull it off, but (fingers crossed) we've gone and broken the world record.

  "I can't believe we managed to eat a bun of that size - although the birds are still enjoying the odd currants they find. It tasted amazing, but now it seems we've got a lot of washing up to do!"

  Greenhalgh's Production Director, David Smart, added: 'As a family craft bakery we are used to hand crafting delicious bespoke items but this was one of the most unusual requests yet. We were delighted to be tested on such a large scale and to help achieve a notable World Record whilst assisting a worthwhile charity.'
