Cookie Will Be Over 100 Feet In Diameter and Contain 6,000 Pounds of Chocolate Chips
Immaculate Baking Company, known for making great-tasting cookies with imaginative flavors and funky packaging, has announced the imminent creation of the world’s biggest cookie. The all-natural chocolate-chip cookie will be larger than a basketball court, measuring over 100 feet in diameter. It will be baked on May 17, 2003, in Hendersonville, North Carolina, at the future site of the Folk Art Museum next to Immaculate Baking Company’s cookie factory. The event will benefit the Folk Artist’s Foundation (FAF) and construction of its Folk Art Museum.
“There’s no question that this cookie will taste great,” says Scott Blackwell, Immaculate Baking Co.’s president and CEO. “But what’s more important is that it will accomplish two critical missions: It will bring the world record back to the US – which should be the case when it comes to chocolate-chip cookies – and it will raise the initial funds to create the Folk Art Museum.”
Blackwell, whose personal collection of over 600 works of folk art will form the museum’s initial collection, has been an advocate for folk art and folk artists for over
a decade. Immaculate Baking Company features folk art on its award-winning packaging and maintains strong relationships with numerous folk artists regionally
The world’s biggest cookie will be baked in a structureless oven, utilizing convective heat to bake the cookie in approximately five to six hours. This one-of-a-kind, 7,850 square foot oven is being designed specially for the big cookie. The cookie will be cut and sold, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Museum Fund for the Folk Artist’s Foundation.
The Folk Artist’s Foundation provides encouragement, support (financial and other) and exposure for artists working in the folk-art tradition. Folk-art is generally defined as art created by artists who lack formal training. The foundation’s efforts are based on the recognition of – and profound respect for – the inherent talent and determination of the self-taught artist, as well as appreciation for the heartfelt beauty, simplicity and integrity of this magnificent art form. The Folk Artist’s Museum will be built next to Immaculate Baking Company’s cookie factory in Hendersonville, NC. The initial collection will include works by R. A. Miller, Mose Tolliver, and Leonard Jones.
Since starting in 1995 with two original cookie flavors, Immaculate Baking Company has rapidly expanded to produce not only its award-winning, unique cookies, but also the Mojo (chocolate-covered, bite-sized pieces of handmade biscotti), various gift sets and handmade biscotti.
