The making of the world's largest brownie

Posted

Gayle Hohman and Joan Scott, owners of Something Sweet Bake Shop in Daphne, wanted to find a creative way to celebrate the shop's fifth anniversary. After much brainstorming, they decided they would attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the world's largest brownie. That brownie would have to weigh 250 pounds, resulting in about 1,200 individual brownie slices. Hohman and Scott didn't want to profit from all of those brownies, so they decided to partner with Bay Area Food Bank to make the event a tasty fundraiser. The brownie was baked Sept. 12 in an 11-by 6-foot pan, constructed specially for the event at no cost by Fulton Haley Metal Products of Bay Minette. It was baked in a custom built oven created by Bolttech Mannings of Theodore, which also donated its services. Join Something Sweet Bake Shop and Bay Area Food Bank Friday, Sept. 13 at 10 a.m. for the unveiling of the world's largest brownie at Something Sweet Bake Shop, located at 1712 Main Street in Daphne, and stop by anytime that day to buy a piece for $3. All proceeds benefit Bay Area Food Bank.
