BAGUIO CITY — A 14-ton, 24-foot high wedding cake, touted as the largest yet was shared by hundreds of city residents at a mall on Saturday as part of this year’s Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Week, an annual showcase of skills and food trends in the summer capital.

The four-tiered cake, baked with chocolate, vanilla, banana, and carrot flavors, was unveiled alongside a mass wedding for 43 couples which Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan officiated.


The event, organized by the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Baguio (HRAB), was held a week after the mountain city was slammed by Typhoon “Ompong” on Sept. 15.

The cake cost P800,000 and took chefs and bakers five days to complete.


To make it, the chefs used 700 kilos of unsalted butter, 800 kilos of sugar, 18,000 eggs, 150 cans of evaporated milk, 30 sacks of all-purpose flour, and 20 sacks of cake flour.

They also used 10 kilos of walnuts, 25,000 bananas, and 500 kilos of carrots.

This is HRAB’s third giant cake. The first was baked and shared with the public in 2007.
