  Longest 'millefeuille' cake: Geneva breaks Guinness world record (VIDEO)

 
GENEVA, Switzerland -- Together with a team of 200 volunteers and professionals, Genevan baker and pastry maker Gilles Desplanches has put together a giant "millefeuille" cake; the cake was 1,221 metres long, which beat the current Guinnes world record held since 1992 by Belgians

  The Guinness world record for the largest crab cake weighed 114.75 kg (253 lb) and was made by Special Olympics Maryland in conjunction with Handy International and Graul's Market (all USA) in Hampden, Maryland, USA.

  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.

  The initial preparations for the world record attempt began almost a year ago.

  The baker who led the team, Gilles Desplanches, has spent some 1000 working hours the last few weeks producing parts of the cake that consisted of 3600 metres of biscuit divided into three layers with a layer of milk chocolate cream and dark chocolate cream in between and topped with red icing.

  'To try and quantify the 'Millefeuille', I think we've spent some 1,000 working hours producing (the parts for the cake).

  'And to give you an idea, we're going to produce 1,200 bags of cream, and in this 'millefeuille', that will make 1,200 metres, there are three layers of biscuit, so we've had to make 3,600 kilometers of biscuit', Gilles Desplanches told Reuters.

  The money raised at the sale of the 'Millefeuille' was to be donated to the Swiss breast cancer association ASAP/RCS.
