The largest mince pie weighed 1.02 tonnes (2,260 lb) and was baked in a bespoke tin by Messrs L and W Radford Ltd (UK) at their Moor Street Bakery in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, UK. It measured 20 x 5 ft (6.1 x 1.5 m). On 14 October 1932, the finished pie was taken to nearby Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire, and displayed as part of the town's shopping festival. At noon on the following day, it was cut up and the pieces auctioned to raise funds for the Ashby Cottage Hospital.

The pie was carried from Burton upon Trent to Ashby-de-la-Zouch's cattle market on a six-wheel lorry. The Nottingham Journal listed the pie's ingredients as:

  • 220lb suet
  • 412lb apples
  • 130lb candied peel
  • 160lb sugar
  • 130lbs sultanas
  • 130lb raisins
