Giant Christmas Cake

Residents in the east German town of Dresden are treated to a sweet delight.

A gigantic Stollen, a German Christmas cake, was paraded through the streets of the east Germany town of Dresden in celebration of the Stollenfest.

Around 60 bakers came together to make the three tonne dessert.

The Stollen took one month to make - 4.35 metres long, 1.78 metres wide, it contained one tonne of flour, 2.6 million raisins and last but not least, 74 litres of rum, according to the festival's organisers.

Visitors were able to sample the dessert for 3 euros, with some of the proceeds going to charity.
