The largest Pavlova in history has been created by students from the Eastern Institute of Technology in Hawke's Bay.

It took 5000 egg whites, 150kg of sugar and 150 litres of cream to build "Pavkong".

The giant Pavlova stretched 64 metres, beating the previous record of 45 metres, held by Te Papa Museum in Wellington.

Pieces of the dessert were sold off, raising $850 for Cranford Hospice in Hastings.
