Swiss village serves up world record tiramisu

Visitors have been lining up for a taste of the world’s largest tiramisu, which has been made in a Swiss village.

The 2.3-ton dessert, which is eight centimetres high and 50 metres long, was created by the Italian Association in Porrentruy in the Jura.

The club has won back its Guinness World Records title from 2007 which it had lost to a French team.

Around 155 volunteers spent 14 hours making the Italian speciality on Saturday. It needed 799 kilograms of mascarpone, 6,400 eggs, 189kg sugar, 300 litres of coffee, 350 litres of cream, 35kg chocolate powder, 66 litres of liquor and 64,000 biscuits.

The master creation is twice as large as the one made by the French team last year. and agencies
