Saturday November 26th was devoted to baking cookies. In keeping with the Bank’s aim to be an ever-extraordinary place, several people gathered in the morning determined, not just to bake cookies, but to break a Guinness World Record. That would mean mixing, rolling, cutting, baking and delivering to the judge’s table more than one thousand cookies in an hour.
Tension mounted as the community cookie-makers arrived. Then it was time to spring into action - the video camera rolled, the stopwatch started and mixing began. The hour went quickly as flour flew, rolling pins flattened, cookie cutters clicked, and piles of cookies appeared before the judges.
And the final count was….. a whopping 809 above and beyond the previous 1,000 cookie record. It’s another outrageous accomplishment at the Arts & Cookery Bank. The video-taped evidence and paperwork have now been packed off to the Guinness World Record people, with record breaking success to be confirmed within a few weeks.
The Arts & Cookery Bank is a member of Savour Elgin.
