Quinn was tasked by BBC Radio 4 to create the enormous version of the traditionally cookie-sized cake to settle the debate: "Are Jaffa cakes a cake or a biscuit?"

"It was a massive challenge, not least because I don't think I've ever made a Jaffa cake before..." Head Baker at Hambleton Bakery Julian Carter said. "Getting hold of the ingredients was the first hurdle, and a board big enough to bake it on. Everyone had a lot of fun in the end. And to go into the Guinness World Records book is some achievement for everyone involved."

The chocolate covered spongecake was made using 12.3 pounds of eggs, 13.4 pounds of butter, 13.4 pounds of of caster sugar, 13.4 pounds of self-raising flour and 7 ounces of vanilla.
