A chef in Australia has set a new world record for the tallest, unsupported stack of pancakes.

Andy Wrobel, a chef at The Pancake Parlour in Melbourne, assembled a pile of 60 pancakes measuring 29.9 inches tall, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

The stack collapsed soon after, but was enough to beat the previous record of 29.1 inches set in Croatia in 2008.

Wrobel attempted to beat the record last year, but his pancake stack collapsed at 24 inches.

Since then, he's made more than 1,000 pancakes and crafted two stacks a week to train for this year's attempt, the Maribyrnong Leader newspaper reported.

"We thought we'd give it another go and this year we actually did it," Wrobel told the Australian Broadcasting Company. "We had a lot of practices, spent about 50 hours, probably used another quarter of a ton of buckwheat mix, and we finally got to the point where we needed to go."
