A 570m Christmas Stollen.

The Kempinski Hotel in Dubai's Mall of the Emirates is set to unveil a Christmas cake that measures a mouthwatering 570m in length.

The Stollen cake, a festive variety of the traditional German fruitcake, is the largest to date made by the Kempinski's pastry chefs and will be publicly displayed at the Mall of the Emirates' Galleria from 10:00 on Friday 14 December.

Slices of said cake will be available for AED5 (US$1.40), while hungrier shoppers can gorge themselves on an entire loaf for AED100. All proceeds will be donated to Dubai Centre for Special Needs.

Tracing its roots back to the Saxony region of Germany, Stollen's ingredients include marzipan, dried fruits and vanilla. The cake has a rich, zesty taste.
