A cake measuring five-metres-high and seven-metres-wide has been made in La Paz to celebrate the 203rd anniversary of the liberation of the city.
Eighty-five cooks worked around the clock for a week, to create the cake which included 11,500 eggs,10 sacks of flour and 20 kilos of baking powder.
The cake was created by gastronomy students and instructors at the Bolivia Gourmet Gastronomy Institute, and was inspired by Bolivia's largest mountain, Mount Illimani which towers over the city.
Lourdes Garcia worked on the cake and described some of the ingredients: "Right now we are making the dulce de leche filling for South America's biggest cake. We are filling it with dulce de leche which goes with the cake. We are using 80 gallons of milk. It is hard work, but we do it with love."
The creators claim it is South America's largest cake, but the world record belongs to an Indonesian creation which measured 33-metres-high.
Once all the pieces and sweet fillings were prepared, the team transported the cake to La Paz's Camacho Plaza, where ten thousand slices of cake were dished out to hungry residents.
