12-foot apple pie to join 150-foot brat in Prescott, Wis.

You can make up your own joke here, but a 12-foot pie is a dream come true for a Wisconsin man and his vineyard.

Forum News Service reports that Herdie Baisden, owner of Maiden Rock Apples, Winery and Cidery in Stockholm, Wis., said he was intrigued by the concept of a 12-foot pie, when an oversized pie tin, split into eight man-sized wedges, came up for sale.

A year later, the 12-foot apple pie is about to become a reality. The Prescott Lions Club will sell slices of the pie -- large enough to feed more than 1,500 people -- starting noon Labor Day, at the same Ptacek's IGA cooks a world-record-breaking bratwurst -- a 150-footer, according to Forum.

Giant pie? Giant brat? Sounds like a dream - or a nightmare - come true to us too.

Ptacek's, a family-owned grocery store, made the record books last year with a 52-foot brat, according to the Jamestown Sun.

Combining 580 pounds of apples, 84 pounds of crust, 110 pounds of cinnamon-sugar mix and 150 pounds of streusel, the 12-foot pie will be one of the largest ever baked in Wisconsin, according to the Sun.

It will be cooked in a custom-made oven standing about 2 feet high and roughly 12-foot square, made of a metal frame, insulation and glass.

Hey, there's already been 100 hours of work and 20 hours of planning for this sucker, says the Republican Eagle out of Red Wing.

Of course, it's all for a good cause or two, reports RiverTowns.net. Proceeds from the brat event will go toward building a new public park in Prescott, while funds raised from the pie will help support Prescott Lions Club's civic and volunteer work.
