Heston Blumenthal, real life Willy Wonka/chef of three Michelin starred The Fat Duck has created the world's largest ice cream in Gloucestershire, England. Weighing 1000 pounds — it was hoisted onto the waffle cone with a crane — the ice cream is 4 meters high and took a month to freeze. According to Blumenthal, "The existing world record is about two and a half metres and we wanted to smash it." It seems he has done so. Also, he arrived in a custom ice cream truck, and there were toppings cannons shooting strawberry sauce and sprinkles at the scoop. The gigantic ice cream was a stunt for Blumenthal's upcoming TV show, Heston's Big Idea.
