The cake had a total surface area of 244 square metres and weighed more than a tonne (1,000 kg), Italian news agency Ansa reported.

The cake was made with a large sponge base, topped with icing sugar.

Around 300 bakers and designers from Italy's National Association of Cake Designers worked for four days to complete the dessert which was presented during the Hobby Show at the Milan Trade Fair yesterday, according to 'The Local'.

Guinness Judge Lorenzo Veltri officially confirmed it as the largest cake sculpture ever.

After the record was confirmed, the cake was cut into 12,000 individual portions and distributed to visitors at the Milan Trade Fair.
