The 27lb cheesecake
The cheesecake was the brainchild of a man who calls himself Mr Cod-Liver Oil (pictured here
), and was constructed as a suprise birthday present for a friend. There are 35 pots of creme cheese in it: unfortunately some of these had to be of the low fat variety, since our local supermarket didn't have enough of the normal full fat type in stock.
Christian's Big Burger!
Big burgers are awesome, and this is no exception. Another fine home made creation, this time by Christian!
Our giant burger! It measures almost one foot in diameter and six inches tall! Total weight: seven pounds, nine ounces. By way of comparison, Christian weighed seven pounds, twelve ounces when he was born.
Taco Town, now with REAL Guaca-mo-lito
Hopefully you have seen the unbelievably funny commercial for Taco Town
which was on Saturday Night Live. If not, check it out now.
Then, check out these guys on Myspace which made the damn thing for REAL.
World's Largest Popcorn Ball
Take a whole lotta popcorn (910lbs), a whole lotta sugar (1500lbs), a whole lotta syrup (690lbs) and way too much spare time and what do you get? The worlds largest popcorn ball, weighing in at 3100 pounds!
Those fun loving people in Sac City are at it again. Forty-four volunteers and five staff members of Noble Popcorn Farms built a popcorn ball that weighed 3,100 pounds on Sat., June 12th to promote popcorn and to create a tourism attraction for the community as it heads into its Sesquicentennial celebration in 2005. The ball surpasses the old Guinness Book of World Records of 2,377 pounds set in September of 1995.
Giant Cadbury Creme Egg
What better way to celebrate Easter than to make a Supersized Cadbury Creme Egg!! How do you do it? All you need is a box of 48 Cadbury Creme Eggs, a large well known brand easter egg, and you're almost done! Happy Easter everyone!
Hi, this is how I spent Good Friday 2004... Ever thought those big Cream Egg Easter eggs were a bit of a cheat as they were always hollow and not filled with fondanty goodness like the normal Cream Eggs? Well, I'd had enough of this, so decided to make my own...
The Hot Dog Rollup, Outdone!
You may have already heard of "The Hamdog".
Well this is pretty similar, the Hot Dog Rollup. "Beef and Pork, wrapped in pork, wrapped in more pork, wrapped in cheese, wrapped in beef and pork and egg!!!" Hahah... Heart attack city! Even the pics show these humble creators clutching their chests.
The Hot Dog Rollup has met its match: A few months back, I happened to browse acrost this thread: http://www.gbsfood.com/1523572/,
abit later, this one: http://www.gbsfood.com/1555320/, and awhile after, this thread: http://www.gbsfood.com/1607706/ What did they all have in common? Besides gratuitous amounts of Vitamin G? Oh yeah thats right I remember now.. I knew I could whoop ass all over those sorry excuses for heart attacks...
Giant Jaffa Cake, the English way!
One of our anonymous readers sent this in. It's a giant "Jaffa Cake". What is a Jaffa Cake you may ask? It's not really what I'd call a cake, it's the size of a regular biscuit. Read the Wikipedia definition here.
It's basically a sponge biscuit, topped with an orange jam, then covered in a chocolate coating. Sarah thought she'd give a giant Jaffa Cake a go....
Jaffa Cakes are super. The dry and chewy sponge, the moist and tangy orangey bit, the tasty chocolate-effect coating, all coming together to make a unique biscuit/cake experience. Since becoming a filthy hippy vegan, I have missed Jaffa Cakes greatly. The orangey bit is made with hooves, the cakey bit is made with chicken's periods, alas, it seemed that never again would I taste their Jaffa glory. Until this thought struck me: What if I could make my own Jaffa Cakes, ones which didn't contain animal ingredients? AND I could make a big one, the size of a normal cake, that you could slice up and serve for tea! Oh, this would be a project like no other. This would be a unparalleled feat of bakery. But I could undertake it, I could conquer the giant Jaffa Cake. This would not just be cookery, this would be ART!
The Giant Burger. An American Celebration - Mike Gradziel
The Giant Burger, can there be any other greater food feat than this? I think not. Mike Gradziel and friends carry on this fine tradition, and blog their experience. I must admit, probably one of the most creative ways to cook a 17lb beef pattie!
Backyard cookouts are a deep-rooted tradition kept by the hard-working people of this country through the hot summer months when family and friends escape the hot kitchen and arrange chairs around a fire to partake in the cooking and eating of fire-grilled food. These events are not meek gatherings. There are no tea sets or linen cloths or martini glasses; these men and women carry the pride of a powerful nation in their hearts and when they turn their energy toward friends, food, and drink, the simple beauty of sharing food and fire is revealed. In celebration of our success as individuals and as a collective group we have brought the art of grilling to a new level. We have created the Giant Burger.
Paul's Giant Burger, University of Chicago
Those crazy University of Chigago guys.... Even though there wasn't a story written for this giant burger feat, you know what they say.... a picture is worth a thousand words!
Whole Cow-on-the-spit, Hakkodo, Japan
I've heard of Pig-on-the-spit, but this is some seriously huge roast beef! There's a company in Japan that does powder snow tours of the Hakkodo Mountains, and on October 1st and 2nd, they hold a "Beef and Garlic Festival, A Real Texas BBQ deep in the heart of Aomori!". It looks pretty serious!
Each October the main event at the festival is the Takko cows which are spit-roasted whole over charcoal fires and seasoned with specially produced garlic to enhance the flavor. Taking place at the 2-2-9 DOME (pronounced ni-ni-ku, the same word for garlic in Japanese) just at the bottom of the ski lift, the indoor and outdoor venues means no matter what the weather brings, everyone can remain warm and dry!
