I wanted to update you on a blog I wrote last week about British Chef Heston Blumenthal’s attempt to create the world’s biggest ice cream.
When I wrote the blog, I wasn’t sure what was meant by “world’s biggest ice cream.” I envisioned a very large scoop or container of ice cream. That shows my lack of imagination. Chef Blumenthal’s creation was an extremely large ice cream cone.
The cone and ice cream measured over 13 feet tall with a ton of ice cream. Freezing the ice cream took an entire month. Things got a little sticky when it came time to apply the strawberry sauce. The chef had rigged a catapult to shoot the sauce at the massive cone. Sadly, most of it didn’t stick.
Minor hiccups aside, Chef Blumethal (and team) now hold the record for the World’s Biggest Ice Cream.
