  Longest Christmas cake: Pudong Shangri-la Hotel sets world record

 Shanghai, China -- Eighty chefs of the Pudong Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai created a 1068-meter-long yule log cake after 24 hours of hard work during a charity event to raise funds for children with cancer - setting the new world record for the Longest Yule log (Christmas) cake, according to World Record Academy (

  The previous Guinness world record, standing at 207.8m-long, was created by Philippe Gardette of the Ordre Culinaire International and Jean-Claude Meritte and Nathalie Raphael of CODECOM (all from France), in La Defense, Paris, France.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the longest Christmas stollen; it measured 72.10 m long (236 ft 6.58 in) and was achieved by Lidl (Netherlands) at Haarlem Railway station, The Netherlands.
  Preparation took several days and the final set up involved 150 staff members working for 24 hours straight, with the cake placed on 156 tables lined up in the hotel lobby.

  The World's Longest Christmas Cake required 904 organic eggs, 1,045 kilograms (2,304 pounds) of wheat flour, 209 kilograms (461 pounds) of cane sugar, 633 litres (1,114 pints) of fresh cream, 401 kilograms (884 pounds) of bitter chocolate and 34 kilograms (75 pounds) of vanilla from Tahiti.

  "We make the sponge, we bake and then, when it's cooled down, we make our vanilla cream, which is inside, we roll it up, and we make our very secret recipe of chocolate frosting," explained the hotel's pastry chef Yusuf Yaran.

 "We put it all over the cake, and then we have our candy decorations and some icing sugar on the top," Yaran said.

 The cake was sliced immediately and sold to the public for 2 yuan (0.31 US dollars) per piece.

  Proceeds from the sale of the cake will be used to support the medical needs of four children undergoing chemotherapy treatment in Shanghai.
