Who Doesn't Love Cheesecake
So I am perusing the internet per usual (looking at trailers for "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs") and came across this article about the largest Meatball ever made. Naturally, I am very intrigued by large food, who isn't, so I continue reading and found out that over the past year, Mexico has been really into beating Guiness World Records. In addition to having the largest organized 'Thriller' dance (pre-Michael Jackson's passing), they had the largest group of people kissing in one area at one moment (40,000 people), which was immediately discouraged afterwords because of Swine Flu fears.
However, that is not nearly the best part. Some chefs in Mexico City baked up the largest Cheesecake ever. Measuring in at over 2 tons (It weighed 4,703 pounds) and over 8 feet long (1 foot, 10 inches tall), it easily surpassed the previous record holder. This monstrosity was sliced up into over 20,000 pieces and served to a few neighboring communities.
For the full article (which I think I did a great job summarizing) and a couple of photos, one of which showcases the 100 kg of strawberries perched on the top of this dairy delight, check out the link below.
