World's biggest fruitcake brings sweet reward in Nicaragua

About three hundred kids staged a fundraiser in Nicaragua on Sunday and smashed a sweet Guinness Book record, baking the world's largest fruitcake, AFP reports.

Stretching across 500 meters (1,640 feet) -- the length of four city blocks -- the whopper of a cake was whipped up by Shick Bakery over two days to help local sick children's charities.

The fruitcake -- cracking the scales at a hefty 14,454 kilograms (31,865 pounds) -- got the green light from the Guinness organization's envoy for Latin America, Ralph Hannah, at a brief ceremony in Managua.

Its sweet massiveness edged out a prior recordholder from Durango, Mexico.

The eye-popper of a fruitcake took 60,000 eggs, 65 bags of flour and sugar weighing 45 kilograms each, 320 margarine containers, 75 buckets of candied fruit and 30 buckets of caramel, plus a lot of guava and pineapple jam.

"It's really yummy," said Gema Reyes, one of thousands of people who lined up to pay 0.80 dollar for a big piece of a little piece of history.
