Serving up a slice of record-breaking cake
On Tuesday morning, Dairy Queen set a new Guinness World Record by constructing the world’s largest ice cream cake in Yonge and Dundas Square. DQ served up free slices for the masses, with suggested donations going to the Children’s Miracle Network. The Post’s Jane Switzer went to the construction.
Emcee and silver medal-winning Olympic curler Cheryl Bernard kicks things off. She explains the cake’s anatomy: 22,000 lbs. of ice cream, sponge cake, icing and Oreo crumbs. The old record, set in Beijing in 2006, weighed in at 17,637 lbs. (Photo: Tyler Anderson/National Post)
