SURREY — Guildford Town Centre celebrated its 50th anniversary in a big way on Tuesday by setting a Guinness World Record for the world’s largest carrot cake.

A Guinness World Record adjudicator was on-site at Guildford Town Centre to make the record official, on the same day that Guildford Town Centre opened its doors in 1966.


Guildford Town Centre partnered with Chef Mickey Zhao of Saint Germain Bakery to bake and assemble the 20-foot, record-setting carrot cake, weighing about 2.25 tons (2,250 kg), and containing 460 kg of carrots.

The assembly of the cake took place over a three-day period between Sunday, Nov. 6 and Tuesday, Nov. 8.
