The Centenary Souvenir Birthday Cake was claimed to be the biggest cake ever made in the World. It was 50 feet high and 300 feet in circumference. Made by George Rath of the Astoria Cafe, the ten-ton fruitcake was eventually cut into 250,000 pieces, packed into tins made by J. Marsh and Sons of Melbourne, and sold for charity.
