On hot days like today- what's better than a little ice cream for a snack?

The answer would be a lot of ice cream. That was the case in New York City- where Carvel Ice Cream built the world's largest ice cream cake.
The stunt required an army of workers, ice cream frozen harder than usual, so it wouldn't melt during the two hour assembly- and a specifically designed scaffold to hold the cake.
The final cake measured 18 feet by ten feet by three feet- and weighed nearly 13 hundred pounds.
Shortly after the assembly the confection was taken apart and shipped to a food bank. (------------)
