To celebrate the momentous and delightful occasion of Saudi Arabia's 88th National Day, a new Guinness World Records™ title was set yesterday by Betty Crocker, the leading brand of dessert mixes from General Mills for baking the Largest mug cake mosaic in collaboration with Panda Retail Company, the leading grocery retailer in the region.
The bake-off for the new Guinness World Records title for the Largest mug cake mosaic was unveiled yesterday at Al Andalus Mall in Jeddah, measuring 112 square-meters with approximately 19,600 Betty Crocker mug cakes. It took 30 bakers almost 8 hours to create the marvelous cake and decorate it by 1900 Betty Crocker cake frosting tubs that represented the Saudi 88th National Day design on top of it before Guinness World Records adjudicator, Ahmed Jamal Jaber, officially confirmed it as the Largest mug cake mosaic ever.
"We are proud to be able to garner a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the 2nd year consecutively, and we would like to congratulate the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques His Majesty King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and all the people of Saudi on their 88th National Day. The idea of baking the Largest mug cake mosaic marks our appreciation and admiration to the remarkable achievements of the Saudi nation as we are strongly committed to support the dreams and ambitions of the Saudi Youth," said Ali Shaikh, Commercial Director General Mills in the Middle East.
To conform with Guinness World Records guidelines, the Largest mug cake mosaic had to meet specific requirements set by the organization. The mosaic had to measure 112 square meters or above in order to break the Guinness World Records title. The event was attended by General Mills and Panda executives, as well as by Guinness World Records officials.
Mr. Hosam Alqurashi, Chief Commercial Officer of Panda said: "It was a great pleasure to us to be able to celebrate this precious occasion of the 88th Saudi National day, with one of our special partners. We would like to felicitate the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques His Majesty King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and all citizens and residents of Saudi Arabia, wishing them immense success and prosperity. This also coincides with our celebration of Panda's 40th anniversary as the leading Saudi retailer in the region. We also would like to acknowledge Betty Crocker's contribution to celebrate the kingdom's grand occasion wishing them more success for the years to come."
After the record was confirmed, the cake was distributed to visitors at Al Andalus Mall and also was delivered to a non-profit organization "Saudi Food Bank" to spread joy and create some festivity for all.
It deserved an impressive indulgence as a contribution to the local community to rejoice this splendid occasion.
