The latest Guinness World Record for a giant Stollen was paraded through the streets of Dresden this month at the 7th Dresden Stollen Festival. The inaugural event's mammoth Christmas cake weighed 2,720kg. The target has incrementally ballooned over the years to the current 4,200kg reigning champ.
Well, it passes the long cold winter nights, we suppose. Wouldn't it be amusing if a UK baker stole their thunder next year?
