We planned to use it for “Guess the Weight of the Cake” competition, so took it downstairs to our print room to be weighed on the franking machine. It came in at 6.572kg (or 7.225kg with the tin).
So here we are at the Coffee Morning with our gigantic Viennese Whirl!
The competition winner divvyed it up amongst staff, which led to stomach cramps for all, over the weekend.
Doesn’t that look appetising?
