La Trinidad again to feature giant strawberry shortcake
by Ofelia C. Empian

Reliving the municipality’s Guinness World Record of preparing the world’s giant strawberry shortcake, La Trinidad, Benguet will once again feature another giant cake as one of the highlights of the annual Strawberry Festival in March.

La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said the cake will be similar to the one the town prepared in 2016, which served 16,000 slices of the strawberry shortcake to locals and visitors who happily lined up to partake of the gigantic masterpiece.

The cake baked by five local bakers was 1.5 meters in height, 2.4 meters in width, and weighed two tons.

Salda said this year’s cake is a mini version of the 2004 world record cake, which produced 46,000 slices.

He said a budget of P535,000 will be allotted for the cake.

“We will be meeting with the bakers and farmers association to supply us the strawberry and bake the strawberry short cake just like before,” Salda said.

He added there have been clamors from the locals and guests for the replication of the giant shortcake for this year’s festival.

Meanwhile, the lineup of activities set for the Strawberry Festival will include the annual strawberry lane and agro-fair of the barangay booths, agri competition, biggest and sweetest strawberry, flower arrangement contest, and the duting tan dukto (strawberry and sweet potato).  

Also, lined up are the art and mural competition, job’s fair, mass wedding, search for Mr. and Ms. La Trinidad, acoustic band contest, dog show, Dongba ni Kabajo (horse race), battle of the bands, balikbayan day and barangay night; kekkan (eating), owik tan tayao/multicultural celebrations, wine fair, various sports events, concert at the park, street dancing, drum and lyre competition and float parade.

The mayor said the local government has allotted more than P4 million to run all the events for the annual festival.
