Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest toast mosaic which measured 128.05 m² (1,378.31 ft²) and was achieved by Laura Hadland and with the help of 27 friends at Parr Hall, The Pyramid Centre, Warrington.
The image of Presley is from his movie star days, during the filming Blue Hawaii (1961).
