Visit Emperors Palace for a taste of the

Longest Birthday Cake in Town!


On Tuesday 25 November 2008, from 14h30 onwards Emperors Palace Hotel Casino Convention Resort will celebrate its 10th Birthday with the baking and icing (and of course eating) of the longest cake in town - an incredible 83 metres!

The cake will be made by the team of chefs at Emperors Palace under the guidance of Complex Exec-Sous Chef, Andreas Radel.  Come and watch as some of SA's most well-known celebrities and local charities get messy icing of the cake.

According to Radel, the cake flavor is Choc-Chip Banana and in order to create this delicious gargantuan of a dessert, the chefs will be working with over 300kg each of ripe bananas, brown sugar and flour, 150 litres each of milk and eggs, 100kg of chocolate chips, 10kg baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and 4kg of salt.  Moirs, famous for it's selection of baking products, have come to the party providing some of the ingredients for use in the cake.

The mixing of the ingredients is estimated to take between 4 and 6 hours and each giant section of cake will be baked for approximately one hour. The icing will be made from cream cheese (over 100kg), icing sugar, unsalted butter and lemon zest.

The cake itself will be laid out in The Emporium at the resort and when complete will be delivered to a variety of charity organizations including Little Eden which provides mentally handicapped children with a peaceful, loving permanent home.

"This is a one of a kind project." says Emperors Palace Chief Operating Officer, Bob Yearham, "It showcases the fact that during our 10 successful years in operation, our commitment to giving back to the community has always been an important factor. I am sincerely looking forward to seeing and helping ice this cake and of course, the smile it will bring to the faces of the children at the charities we support"
