  Baker makes world's biggest hot cross bun!
Updated 28 March 2002, 19.08
The world's biggest hot cross bun
The world's biggest-ever hot cross bun has been made at a bakery.

The massive bun weighed 42.8 kilos - that's heavier than most of you!

The idea was thought up to try and get some much needed publicity for the seaside town of Littlehampton in West Sussex.

Lots of ingredients were needed for making the bun, including 24 kilos of flour, three kilos of sultanas, two kilos of sugar, fat, salt, and nine litres of water.

Vincent and his dad, the baker

Vincent, the baker's son, was thrilled with the world record.

'I'm going to be a record breaker'

He said: "I like it 'cos it's fun doing a record-breaker and when I grow up I'm going to be one."

The bun is 800 times the size of a normal one, but no one will be lucky enough to eat it as it's going on display at the local amusement park for a few years.
