Guinness World Records recently announced that House of Bread, a bakery in Mill Creek, received the record for baking the largest cinnamon roll.

Owners Wayne and Anita Warren recently received a certificate stating that the 246.5-pound edible cinnamon roll was indeed the largest of its kind. It measured 6 feet in diameter.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Oct. 15, the Warrens joined their staff of four to construct, bake and serve the gooey treat to hundreds of onlookers. The roll consisted of 180 pounds of dough, 50 pounds of butter and cinnamon sugar, and 50 pounds of icing.

The giant roll was equivalent to 789 standard 5-ounce rolls and contained a whopping 394,400 calories, owner Wayne Warren said.

The certificate is displayed at the bakery, 15224 Main St., Suite 105.

For three weeks beginning March 3, the Girl Scouts will sell the famous cookies in the green boxes as part of the annual fundraiser.

Through March 19, Girl Scouts from the Totem Council will be at various Snohomish County locations selling the sought after baked goods.

Little Brownie Bakers, manufacturers of the tasty treats, introduce Cafe Cookies, a new cookie caramelized with brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon spice. Traditional favorites, such as Samoas, Thin Mints and Tagalongs, will also be available.

Cookies are $4 per box.

Consumers can purchase an extra box as part of the Girl Scouts “Gift of Caring: Operation Cookie Drop” to be donated to Puget Sound’s Naval Forces.
