The cooks prepared the huge cake on thousands of tables and desks which were set up across a festival ground in the city of Thrissur, Kerala.
"This is an effort to showcase our skills to the world," said Naushad. "We ensured hygiene and taste were up to the mark," said Naushad.
The group is looking forward to smashing Chinese bakers' record who made a cake measuring 3.2km in 2018.
