Largest cake sculpture

As part of the Qatar National Day celebrations, a team of 25 hotel chefs from the Ritz-Carlton- Doha (under the guidance of the hotel's Executive Chef Matthew Morrison) worked for 1,176 hours (six days) to prepare a cake sculpture weighing 1,670kg, measured 8m in length, 4m in width, 16cm in height - setting the new world record for the Largest cake sculpture.
Weighing 1,670kg, the World's largest Cake Sculpture was prepared by The Ritz-Carlton Doha for Qatar Foundation for Combating Human Trafficking's (QFCHT) national day programme.
A team of 25 hotel chefs worked for 1,176 hours (six days) on the Qatari map-shaped, vanilla cake with butter-cream icing, which by the time ready had a potent 480kg of sugar, 10,800 eggs, 800kg of flour and 302kg of butter, Ritz-Carlton executive chef Mathew Morrison said.

"We are very proud given this excellent opportunity to enter the Book of Records, and to showcase our culinary expertise with such a unique piece on the occasion of Qatar National Day," Morrison said.

The sheer magnitude of the work meant the largest cake sculpture in the world had to be made with the participation of over two dozen chefs, led by hotel's pastry chef Khalid Rashwan.
