Geneva chef makes worlds largest candy cane
Geneva pastry chef Alain Roby broke his third Guinness World Record Saturday night by creating the world's longest candy cane, measuring at 51 feet long.
Roby, who already holds world records for the tallest cooked sugar building and tallest chocolate sculpture, pulled sugar starting at the Geneva Courthouse and stretched it to the intersection in front of his All Chocolate Kitchen, at 33 S. Third St., on Saturday.
The candy cane fit in well with the festive decorations on Third Street as residents, candy fans and even Mayor Kevin Burns joined in to cheer on Roby.
Roby is a certified master chef of pastry and artistry, and he has created other masterpieces including a 700 pound sculpture of Neil Armstrong in an astronaut suit that was featured on the Food Network. He also created a life-size chocolate sculpture of a Blackhawks player honoring Chicago Blackhawk's legend Eddie Olczyk when the team won the 2010 Stanley Cup.
