Chefs bake world record biscuit in Nottingham

The cream-filled biscuit took 11-and-a-half hours to make

The world's largest cream-filled biscuit has been baked by cousins Simon Morgan and Paul Thacker in a hotel kitchen in Nottingham.

Simon Morgan said the world record attempt was inspired by his children.

"We've baked big biscuits before but not to this size," he said of the 59cm by 39cm creation.

Rob Mulloy, adjudicating for the Guinness World Records, said: "The attention to detail that has gone into this is spectacular.

"This is very well put together, well thought out and a well created record."

The Cream Custard, which is completely edible and took 11-and-a-half hours to make, is to be auctioned on e-Bay for the BBC charity Children in Need.
