There are candy canes. And then there are candy canes.

This is the latter.

Chef Alain Roby of All Chocolate Kitchen in Geneva set a Guinness world record for longest candy cane when he unveiled a 51-foot long candy cane as part of Geneva's Christmas Walk and House Tour.

It's the third time that Roby has made a Guinness world record. He also holds the title for cooked sugar building (12 feet, 10 inches) and chocolate sculpture (20 feet, 8 inches).

Roby, a regular guest on Food Network programs and The Martha Stewart Show, trained under renowned pastry chef Gaston Lenotre and celebrated the first anniversary of his shop's opening in August.

Chicagoist has an interview with Roby here.
