Vegan Cake sets World Record
I’ve always said that eating vegan meant you were allowed to eat more.
Guinness World Records reports that last weekend, the world’s largest vegan cake was made at the Rohvolution raw food festival in Germany, the largest raw food event in Europe . Hotel Essentis Biohotel Berlin created the record breaking 857 pound raw masterpiece in celebration of it’s fifth anniversary, and apparently to encourage healthy eating (the real feat of a giant cake).

It took 31 (hopefully vegan) people 26 hours to sculpt the dessert. At 1.60 by 3.10 metres in size, the cake was made up of locally sourced dates, mixed nuts, raisins, hazelnuts, coconut oil, and cocoa powder. Can you imagine the cost? My birthday is coming up, so there’s still an opportunity for people to attempt to beat this record, though I’d prefer something with icing.
The hotel’s Manager, Tobis Grimm, told Guiness: “You are what you eat — And this world record attempt will make many people aware of healthy eating, besides, our cake is going to be a hit!” Guinness World Records adjudicator Lena Kuhlmann, and many hungry guests, were treated to a slice once the dessert was crowned. I doubt anyone was complaining that their piece was too small.
Remember that 45 year-old vegan who got in to Guinness for preforming 82 knuckle push-ups in a minute? I can’t help but feel like he deserves a cake like this.
