1,128 children gathered in New York a few weeks ago, for a “Kids Mega ChallahBake” event. They broke an existing record in Hong Kong held by 426 students, who learned how to knead and bake dough, in 2013.

The Guinness World Records is currently tallying up the results for a final announcement.

They used a whopping 1,000 eggs, 1,000 pounds of flour and 7,000 ounces of water in the process!
