Topped with strawberries and yielding 20,000 slices, the world’s

Record for World’s Biggest Cheesecake for the foreseeable future. It
can’t have been easy to orchestrate the massive baking project, which

pastry, 551 pounds of sugar, and 331 pounds of butter.

After 60
hours of labor, the team of Mexican chefs unveiled the two-ton
