Bakers in Rio de Janeiro have served up a massive 450-metre-long cake to celebrate the city's 450th anniversary.

The cake is made from around 30,000 eggs, 2,500 bags of flour and a load of butter, and it took ten bakers three days to make!

It was assembled on the streets by the bakers who topped it with whipped cream and a milk fudge sauce.

It is all to celebrate 450 years since Portuguese sailors first landed in Brazil and founded the city of Rio, where next year's Olympic Games will take place.
