A 1,893 Pound Pumpkin Pie

Forty Chinese chefs came together to collaborate on the enormous endeavor of creating a giant pumpkin pie, reports Shanghaiist. The chefs prepped and mixed ingredients for the giant 1,893-pound pie in Changsha, China, then assembled the final dessert using a crane. It was that big.

Ingredients like dates and raisins were thrown into the pumpkin mix along with a decent amount of sugar to form the filling for the pie. It topped off at nearly 14 feet in diameter. Because there was so much food to fill the crust, a crane was brought in to pour, as well as spread, the material into the giant pan. The pie as a whole, however, only took thirty minutes to bake. Unfortunately, the giant pie fell short of setting a Guinness World Record. The world’s largest pie came from Ohio, weighing in at 3,699 pounds. On the upside, portions of the giant pumpkin pie were donated to a local children’s center.
