Would you eat this for lunch? (Don't miss our World Pasty Championships on 28 Feb!) http://t.co/3LG2u0DAMs
The head chef at the Eden Project in Cornwall has cooked up a novel way to mark the beginning of the World Pasty Championships - by creating an enormous Cornish pasty in the shape of the earth.
Tony Trenerry spent more than eight hours slaving over the colossal snack. It's 70cm in diameter, and needed an extra large oven.
He said it was the toughest, and heaviest, baking challenge of his career.
He said: "I was inspired by the amazing collection of competitive pasties at last year's World Pasty Championships and wanted to do my bit to inspire entrants to this year's competition.
"Word about the competition is spreading and, as well as local bakers, we have had interest from around the world, including enquiries from the US and Canada."

The scenery of Dartmoor is some of the most inspiring in the world. Two photographers were so inspired that they created a time-lapse film of the National Park showing its changing face throughout the seasons.
It took a painstaking attention to detail and extraordinary dedication. The results were so good that the eight minute finished film has been bought by the Dartmoor National Park Authority itself.

Not your average crime scene. The police have found a football club shed door on the Isles of Scilly forced open and damaged. No clues as to the culprit - except the baffling sight of a fried egg.
The police suspect a school kickabout gone wrong, and hope to find an amicable solution.
The fire brigade had to be called out to rescue a woman who was locked in a cupboard under the stairs in Plymstock - by her one-year-old child earlier today.
Emergency services were called after she managed to alert her next door neighbours in Radford Park Drive.
Crews used small tools and a triple extension ladder to gain access and release the adult from the cupboard. The mother was then reunited with her child.
We asked you to send us photos of your Christmas lights displays - and there are certainly some spectacular houses out there. Here are a couple of our favourites.
The Dunn family sent us this picture of their house in Tiverton. The Dunn's are raising money for charity and have been drawing crowds of onlookers.
This one was sent in by Mr and Mrs Keynes, who live in Yeovil. They've got Santa, holly, a stocking, and even a Christmas pudding.
Thanks to everyone who's sent us pictures. If you want to send yours in you can email us at email@example.com, tweet us @itvwestcountry, or post it on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ITVWestcountry.
