  The Guinness world record for the largest cheese pie weighed 862 kg (1,900 lbs 6 oz) and was made by the students of Educational Group AKMI in Thessalonica, Greece.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest pumpkin pie; it weighed 916.25 kg (2,020 lb) and measured 3.7 m (12 ft 1 in) long. It was made by New Bremen Giant Pumpkin Growers in Ohio, USA.

  The inaugural Key Lime Festival was conceived by Key West author and baker David Sloan, who penned "The Ultimate Key Lime Pie Cookbook."

  "People like to say nothing's more American than apple pie, but down here in the Florida Keys, we like to say nothing's as Keysey as Key lime pie on the Fourth of July," festival co-founder David Sloan said in a statement.

  The World's Largest Key Lime Pie contained 5,760 key limes, 91 kg of graham crackers and 208 litres of condensed milk. Organizers said it was big enough to feed 1,000 people.

  After the unveiling, slices of the pie were sold to benefit the historic Key West Firehouse Museum.

  Finding the eight-foot diameter pan to bake the monster pie was the biggest challenge. Oh, and adapting a recipe meant for a few pies to one giant sweet concoction that weighed in at 1,000-plus pounds.
