Chefs in Mexico recently completed the largest cheesecake ever made, setting a world record in the process.

Chef Miguel Angel Quezada, along with 50 other cooks, spent nearly 60 hours making the world's largest cheesecake. The cake took almost a ton of cream cheese to make, and weighed in at almost two tons!

Carlos Martinez of Guinness World Records officially declared the cheesecake
the world's largest at an event sponsored by Kraft Foods
(maker of Philadelphia cream cheese) in Mexico City.

The competition wasn't that stiff given that Guinness had no previous record for larger than life cheesecakes. When the huge cake was done, it was topped with strawberries, cut into 200 thousand slices and distributed across the city to lucky citizens.

I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
