London, Aug 21 (ANI): A team of bakers in Britain has created the world's biggest Cornish pasty that weighs nearly a ton.

The pasty, which weighs 1900lbs (850kg) and measures around 15ft long, contains 364lbs of beef skirt, 180lbs of swede, 100lbs of potato, and 75lbs of onion, and costs 7,000 pounds.

It was made in the classic semi-circular shape with a crust using 1,000lbs of flour and 500lbs of butter, and it is equivalent to around 3,500 normal sized pastries.

A special weighbridge used for lorries was used to weigh the monster pie, which was baked in a specially built oven for 11 hours.

It was cooked during a competition to see who could build the biggest pasty in 24 hours at the annual regatta in Fowey, Cornwall.

The winner was created by a team of six from Proper Cornish, of Bodmin, who beat local rivals Lostwithiel Bakery.

"It was a lot of hard work - we are tired but ecstatic," the Sun quoted Proper Cornish director Mark Muncey as saying.

The feat is now being verified by the Guinness Book of World Records to have it recognised as the biggest pasty ever made. (ANI)
