Pastry chefs in Skalica in Trnava region baked a 193-centimetre-long trdelník cake at the local Trdlofest festival over the past weekend, breaking their own world record set last year by 8.5 centimetres, the TASR newswire reported.
Shortly after setting the new record, the giant cake was cut into pieces and shared among visitors to the festival. Skalica trdelnik cake is a speciality made from sweet leavened dough which is then spooled around a metal tube and baked over charcoal. It is very sweet and contains walnuts.
The cake has been given an EU-protected designation and can be baked only in a specific area near the town of Skalica.
