    (Germans bake world's biggest Black Forest cake)

    Rust, Germany - Bakers in this southwestern German town have claimed to have made the world's biggest Black Forest cake, measuring 10 meters (33 feet) in diameter and weighing three tons.

    They used more than 5,600 eggs, 700 liters (185 US gallons) of cream, 800 kilogram's (1,750 pounds) of cherries and 120 liters of cherry liqueur to bake the towering cake.

    The bakers said they believed they had broken a world record set in 1999 in Germany with a cake measuring 5.8 meters in diameter.

    This effort was cut into 16,000 slices and the proceeds used to help children who need heart surgery.

    Does anyone else find that rather ironic?
