To mark the auspicious occasion of 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, a team of 15 people worked for 12 hours to prepare a 550 feet-long cake in Patiala's Rajpur.

"An idea popped in my mind that we all should make a 550 feet-long cake and dedicate it to Guru Nanak Dev Ji on the occasion of Prakash Parv. The purpose of making this cake was to celebrate the 550 years of Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birth anniversary," the brain behind the feat said.

The order was completed in 12 hours

One of the people who helped in making the gigantic cake said that they had received the order around 2:00-2:30 pm on Monday. He also said that after they received the order, they stopped taking any other orders and the entire team committed themselves to make this one order a success.
