Several thousand people gathered in Mexico City’s huge Zocalo plaza on Thursday evening to partake in a gigantic Three Kings Day cake known as a “rosca.” The monumental rosca weighed in at 9,371 kilos (20,660 lbs) and measured 4,724 metres long (15,500 ft) before it was cut up into giant pieces and given to anyone wanting a piece. Some impoverished families came because without the rosca give away they would not have cake to celebrate the Three Kings Day feast.
