Enormous cake celebrates birth anniversary of Taoism founder

Over 10,000 people gathered around the world's highest bronze statue of Lao Zi (604-531 BC), an ancient Chinese philosopher and the founder of Taoism, on Lao Junshan Mountain in Henan province on March 12. The crowd assembled to celebrate the 2,588th anniversary of the birth of Lao Zi. A massive cake was made to mark the occasion, decorated with the text of the Dao De Jing, a book believed to be finished by Lao Zi. Weighing 5 tons, the cake contained 30,000 eggs, 450 kilograms of sugar, 300 kilograms of milk and 600 kilograms cream. Nevertheless, the crowd made quick work of the tasty treat.
