Mexico bakes nearly mile-long 'rosca' cake

By Sapa-AP | Jan 04, 2013 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

Mexican bakers have made a traditional holiday ring cake that instead of measuring the usual two feet or so, weighed in at 10 tons and stretched in a nearly mile-long circle on Mexico City’s main plaza.

National bakers association vice president Antonio Arias says the bready Rosca de Reyes was estimated to be sliced into 200,000 pieces.

Bakers used more than 5 metric tons of flour, 3 tons of butter and 38,600 eggs to create the cake.

The sweet bread is traditionally eaten on Jan. 6, Three Kings Day, marking the end of the holiday season in Mexico.

The 1 1/2-kilometer-long cake was decorated with dried fruits and hidden inside were non-edible plastic figures of the baby Jesus.
