That's one castelluva chocolate cake!

전국에 몇개 안남은 대왕 초코카스테라 Fantastic Giant Chocolate Castella / Korean street food

In Gangseo District in Seoul, you’ll find a cake shop called Laoje Castella and an incredible chocolate castella. One slice costs KRW 12,000 which is about £6.83/$8.64 but that slice might take two separate sittings depending on your appetite.

The above video shows the baking process, starting with a lot of eggs (must be well over 100) with the yolks separated from the albumen and the ingredient adding and mixing begins.
