Thrissur is all set to bake a mega cake as part of the closing down ceremony of the Happy Days night shopping festival. The cake that is 4 kilometres long would be made on 15th January. With this, the members of the All Kerala Bakery Owners Association aim to break the Guinness World Record for the longest cake. However, the location where the cake would be made hasn’t been decided yet. It is assumed that the cake would be baked at somewhere in Thrissur town itself. It is estimated that the giant cake would weigh at least 20 tones.
Around 160 bakeries from Thiruvananthapuram to Kasaragod would participate in making the record breaking cake. 400 chefs would soon reach Thrissur for it. Meanwhile, Mayor Ajitha Vijayan, Happy Days general convener TS Pattabiraman, chamber secretary MR Francis and treasurer TA Sreekanth said that it is better for the people to just see the mega cake and not taste it as the cake would be made on the road.
The chamber representatives added that the Happy Days night shopping festival has given an impetus to the commercial sector of the town and that all the shops had registered high sales and profits. It is assumed that people would throng the city streets in the coming days as Kudumbashree’s food stalls would be opened at Vanchikulam.
The authorities have requested the Dewasom Board to allot one of the stages at the Thekkinkadu ground for conducting cultural programs. The catering units could serve delicious food for those who come to enjoy the programs here. The organizers claimed that the international motor cross bike race that would be held at Aranuttukara on 11th and 12th January would the biggest bike racing event in South India, where more than 9000 audiences would be accommodated in the huge galleries.
