Lima Municipality offered a giant cake for Peru?s Independence Day


The Lima Municipality offered Peru a 30 square meter (20 x 1½ meter) red and white cake as part of the celebration of Peru’s 184th Independence Anniversary.
It took 150 bakers, 1 800 eggs, 114 kilos of flour, 81 kilos of sugar, 50 kilos of strawberries, 50 litres of milk and a lot of time to prepare the special cake.
All the citizens that went to Plaza San Martin, where the giant cake was displayed, were offered a piece.
