The report noted: "Stretching across 500 meters (1,640 feet) -- the length of four city blocks -- the whopper of a cake was whipped up by Shick Bakery over two days to help local sick children’s charities. The fruitcake, which weighed 14,454 kilograms (31,865 pounds), got the green light from the Guinness organization’s envoy for Latin America, Ralph Hannah, at a brief ceremony in Managua."
