You couldn’t call it half-baked. The world’s largest dog biscuit has been created to celebrate the release of Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins on DVD and the new Scooby-Doo playset and has been kindly donated to Dogs Trust for all their canine residents to enjoy .
Prepared by the Canine Cookie Company for Warner Bros, the record-breaking, monster snack measures a staggering 11ft by 4ft making this treat 2,332 times the size of an average dog biscuit. Manoeuvring the giant treat is no small feat either: weighing in at a whopping 105kg (16.5 stone), it needs several burly men to carry and beats the previous record-holder by 33kg.
Video of the making of the giant cookie plus pictures from the Dogs Trust presentation will follow on the blog later today.
- The World’s largest Scooby snack has been officially awarded the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest dog biscuit granted on Thursday 8th October 2009.
- The giant Scooby Snack took a team of 5 people to make: 2 bakers, one assistant and two chefs & 7 people to lift and transport it.
- Ingredients included: 51kg plain flour, 21kg vegetable oil, 21kg agave and 140 eggs. The baking process took a day and included 1hr to prepare – grease and lay silicone paper in a baking tray, mix all the ingredients. The mix was poured into the mould and rolled out using standard rolling pins. It was then put into the oven and baked for 4 hours at 160 degrees centigrade. The biscuit was left to cool and then iced.
