The world’s largest ice cream cone was revealed in Gloucester, U.K., this weekend.
A forklift carried the ice cream, which weighed 2,204 pounds, and placed it on top of the cone. The cone stood about 13 feet tall, surpassing the previous 9-foot record that was set last year by Mirco Della Vecchia and Andrea Andrighetti.
Wall’s, a U.K. ice cream company known for brands like Magnum and Carte D’Or, donated the ice cream that took more than a month to freeze.
Sprinkles and strawberry sauce toppings were catapulted on the cone but most failed to stick
Heston Blumenthal arrived at the event in a vintage ice cream truck to unveil the cone. Blumenthal is the chef and owner of the three-Michelin starred restaurant The Fat Duck. The unveiling was part of his new show, “Heston’s Big Idea.”
