An Italian man has set a new Guinness World Record for putting the most scoops of ice cream on a single cone. 

Dimitri Panciera completed the cool feat at Gelatimo ice-cream festival in Forno di Zoldo, Italy, scooping a staggering 121 mini mounds of gelato into a regular sized cone

Guinness documented the entire scooping process.

Per Guinness rules, the cone couldnt be any wider than 3.74 inches and the scoops needed to remain balanced for 10 seconds or morewhich wasnt a problem for Pancieras stack as he carried his cone outside and casually licked the confection after piling on the scoops.

So whats the trick to creating such a gigantic gelato?

Panciera credits the quality of the local artisanal gelato for making the record possiblebut hes had some practice in the realm of the over-the-top treats. 

He held the previous record for most scoops on a single cone109. And he also created the worlds largest ice-cream scoop, which measures 6 feet and 4.7 inches long, 1 foot and 10.8 inches wide and 6.6 inches deep.
