I did a double-take when I walked past this the other day at the Sussex Centre in Chinatown.
According to the plaque alongside it, this mooncake weighs 65kg and is equivalent to 700 normal sized mooncakes, which apparently makes it the biggest mooncake in Australia. The mooncake measures 67cm across and is 12cm high.
Made by Saint Honore Cake Shop on 14 September, 2009, the giant-sized mooncake contains sugar, flour, vegetable oil and lotus seed paste.
I'm guessing our resident food blogging mooncake competitive eaters won't be touching this one anytime soon.
The giant mooncake can be found near the escalators on Level 1 of the Sussex Centre (Sussex Street side).
