Alain Roby and his giant candy cane.

Award-winning pastry chef Alain Roby won his third Guinness World Record Saturday in Geneva, when he created the world’s largest candy cane. Certified Master Chef of Pastry and Sugar Artistry Roby pulled sugar down Third Street to make the giant holiday sweet, which stretched 51 feet from the Geneva Courthouse to his All Chocolate Kitchen.

Roby previously built the World’s Tallest Cooked Sugar Building, 12 feet, 10 inches tall, and the World’s Tallest Chocolate Sculpture, 20 feet, 8 inches tall. He is the only pastry chef to hold three Guinness World Records.

After the official measuring, Roby took a hammer to the candy cane, breaking it into small pieces for bystanders to eat.
