You’ve seen cinnamon rolls before, but imagine eating one that weighs 521.5 kg (1,149.7 lb)!
In celebration of Cinnamon Roll Day on 10 April, Wolferman's Gourmet Baked Goods hosted a live-action baking event in an effort to break the record for the world’s Largest cinnamon roll.
The American bakery, which is based in Oregon and owned by food retailer Harry & David, wanted a special way to showcase the passion, skill and ingenuity that exists within their team.
They managed to successfully bake a colossal 2.7 m (9 ft) roll, crushing the previous title of 276.2 kg (609 lbs).
To create the massive dessert, Wolferman's followed the same recipe they use for their traditional cinnamon rolls, adjusting the measurements accordingly.
The ingredients included:
- 9 kg (20 lb) of whole eggs
- 158.7 kg (350 lb) of flour
- 171.4 kg (378 lb) of cinnamon sugar filling
- 68 kg (150 lb) of white sugar
- 45.3 kg (100 lb) of brown sugar
- 220 cinnamon sticks
Of course, this gigantic roll was accompanied by equal proportions of delicious cream cheese frosting, which weighed a hefty 66.6 kg (147 lb).
Guinness World Records adjudicator Kaitlin Vesper was present to verify that all guidelines were properly followed and ensure that the cinnamon roll was consumed afterwards.
To make sure no food went to waste, Wolferman’s epic cinnamon roll was shared at Medford’s Annual Pear Blossom Festival where attendees from southern Oregon could purchase a piece for $2.
All proceeds were donated to the Teresa McCormick Center, a local community resource dedicated to providing education, assistance and connection for those in need.
