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.”
