World's Largest Cheesecake Baked in Mexico
Our affinity for World's Largest items knows no bounds, obviously and now we have a new item to tack onto the already "huge" (GET IT?) group of bizarrely big things: cheesecake.
But the world's biggest cheesecake isn't coming from where you would think, like New York. It was baked in Mexico. And it's quite large.
Chef Miguel Angel Quezada says 55 cooks spent 60 hours making the world's biggest cheesecake — a 2-ton calorie bomb topped with strawberries.
The monster cake used nearly a ton of cream cheese, the same amount of yogurt, 350 kilograms (772 pounds) of pastry, 250 kilograms (551 pounds) of sugar and 150 kilograms (331 pounds) of butter.
And, lest you question it, Guiness has already certified it as the record holder for World's Biggest Cheesecake. It's the first attempt at this record, of course, but, before you try and make a run at the record, remember: TWO TONS of cheesecake. TWO TONS. That's not exactly something you can just whip together on a Sunday afternoon.
