A bakery has created a massive doughnut which weighs 40kg and is packed with 170,000 calories.
The whopping treat, which measures 1.5 metres (4.9ft) in diameter, will set you back £500 at Derbyshire-based bakery Project D.
The potential record-breaker contains raspberry jam, chocolate filling and seven different toppings.
These include vanilla cream, chocolate icing, chocolate fudge brownies, raspberries, golden Dairy Milk chunks and swirls of caramel cream which adorn the top of the gigantic snack.

Marc Brough, from Nottingham, ordered the monster treat for his wife Rebecca as a surprise 40th birthday gift last week.
She lauded the doughnut as the best birthday cake she's ever received and revealed that none of it went to waste despite its size.
Rebecca said it had to be wedged through a pair of double doors at her husband's office-space business where she shared it among staff.
She said: "It was insane. It was absolutely incredible. I couldn’t believe the size of it when they brought it in.
“The doughnut was so big that they had to fully open the double doors at the Cubo office in Derby just to get it inside the room.
“It was the best birthday cake ever, and it’s fantastic to think my birthday has probably become part of a UK record.
“And, amazingly, none of it went to waste.
“It was shared with everyone and was scoffed in record time. I also saved a piece for each of my children, and they loved it."

The doughnut is crammed with 169,342 calories - the equivalent of 740 Mars bars or 1,400 large bananas.
Max Poynton, operations director for Project D, reckons their creation is the UK's biggest doughnut cake by a 'long way'.
He said: “We’re over the moon to have been invited to play such a big part in both Rebecca’s special birthday.
“Our design and bakery teams definitely came up trumps with Rebecca’s monster doughnut cake.
"As far as we can find out, it’s the UK’s biggest doughnut by a long way.”
