Nigeria is expected to make history on October 1, when its caterers build and unveil the world’s largest cake. The 65,000kg cake, will be unveiled at the National Stadium, Abuja, is expected to beat the current Guinness World Records.

By midnight, October 1, a select group of Nigerian caterers and bakers will begin work on a 65ton cake. By noon, the fruit cake, decorated in green and white colours will be unveiled by President Goodluck Jonathan. Mr. Jonathan will cut the 6ft high cake and Nigerians will have the opportunity to have a share of the ‘national cake’ literally.

The cake, which will be 100ft long and 6ft high, will require the services of at least 2000 persons, and is expected to beat the records of the current world’s largest cake, a 58ton cake which was baked in 1989.

One meal one nation

The organiser of the World’s largest cake project, Victor Oluwafemi, says he has tagged the project, ‘one meal one nation’, in line with the philosophy behind the project.

“The project is a private endeavour which myself and my team thought of. We wanted to do something significant for the 50th anniversary project. We wanted something that would give every Nigerian an opportunity to partake in the celebrations. We knew that the average Nigerian would not have the opportunity to eat the cake that will be presented in the villa,” Mr. Oluwafemi said to NEXT in Abuja.

Mr. Oluwafemi’s team of three spoke enthusiastically of the measures that they are taking to ensure that the cake gets to as many Nigerians as possible. First, every state in the country will receive one ton of the cake and the small team also expects that every tribe in the country will be represented in the Abuja Stadium on October 1, and will have the opportunity to have a bite of the cake.

“This project is supposed to turn the national cake that we always talk about to reality. It will give Nigerians an actual cake to feed on,” Paul Sambo, the team’s head of Strategic business said.

Likening the project to the national pride that comes from winning a football match, the team says that the project was designed to boost the emotions of Nigerians despite the current national challenges.

“This project does not gainsay the fact that the nation has problems up till today. But we need inspiration in order to move forward as a nation. This project was designed with a leadership bias, a leader inspires his people no matter what and that is what we hope to do,” Joseph Yakwo, the third member and the operations officer of the project said.

Making the records book

If the team’s cake must to enter the Guinness World Records, Mr. Oluwafemi and his team will have to start and finish the cake within 24 hours; the team plans to do so in 8.

“We are going to bake the cake in about 8 hours. The cake is going to be baked, cooled and iced on the same day,” Mr. Yakwo said.

The team says that it has been in touch with the officials of the Guinness World Records and that a Guinness adjudicator will arrive from New York to inspect the project from start to finish.

In nigerian nature, only those close to the cake can have a bite. All the spectators would starve to death. That is Nigeria for you.

Oh! Let me ask. Is it the so-called national cake that I have been hearing about? I will like to see it and have a BIG BITE.

I don't understand why some people are making such a fuss about this issue? It's a known fact that individuals celebrate birthdays, and bake cakes inspite of serious personal challenges..  So, why shouldn't a great nation like Nigeria (in my opinion) celebrate an important milestone as a 50th birthday with such a gigantic cake?

abi ooo and we will b in da world record....nigerian see so much negativity in things....geesshhh

Do Nigerians need this? Honestly I dont think so.This is not in their DNA.
On the contrary what they earnestly desire or crave for is for their 'rulers' to become  leaders.
When they become visionary leaders,Nigerians can afford to buy/bake their individual cakes and then celebrate their accomplishments.

Is this metaphorically speaking? tons of cake???...be careful  u dont feast today and famine tomorrow. I still think it's nice to know that they r trying to bring about oneness, in the form of sharing so everyone can be a part of celebrating this wonderful treasure,   The Freedom Charter received October 1, 1960 a memorable date and event.
