THE FOURTH year of a popular event for residents of Prešov, in eastern Slovakia, took place on Valentine’s Day in front of the municipal building.

Prešov – láska moja (Prešov – My Love) culminated at 16:00 with a giant cake, 2 metres by 2 metres and weighing 145 kilograms, being cut by Mayor Pavol Hagyari and being heartily enjoyed by residents and visitors, Veronika Gazdová, the city’s spokesperson, told the SITA newswire, adding that everyone who wanted to celebrate the “day of love and people in love” could get a piece of cake.

Baking the cake required 367 eggs, 23 kilograms of flour, 24 kilograms of sugar, 9 kilograms of grated coconut, 8 kilograms of marmalade, 32 pieces of Hera baking fat, 1.3 litres of rum, 24 litres of milk, and large pinches of various other ingredients.

The accompanying programme included performances by Tomáš Palonder and Barbora Švidraňová as well as a new twist – a fortune teller who forecast the future for all enamoured couples in the crowd. The city also supported Valentínska kvapka krvi (Valentine’s Drop of Blood), a blood donation drive held throughout Slovakia.
