The world's biggest cheesecake was made in Mexico City in January 2009 by a team of 55 chefs organised by the makers of Philadelphia cream cheese. It weighed 2,133.5 kg (4,703 lb), had a diameter of 2.5 m (8 ft 2 in) and was 56 cm (1 ft 10 in) high.
The recipe included 800 kg of Philadelphia cheese, 800 kg of yogurt, 350 kg of cookies, 250 kg of flour, 150 kg of butter and 100 kg of strawberries among other ingredients.
Just over three years later, in March 2012, Chandra Bahadur Dangi of Kathmandu, aged 72,was announced as the world's shortest man. At 54.6cm (21.5 inches) he was two inches shorter than previous record-holder, 18-year-old Junrey Balawing of the Philippines.
Since this is 1.4cm less than the height of the cheesecake, March 2012 was when the world's shortest man became shorter than the world's tallest cheesecake.
