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 couldn’t be any wider than 3.74 inches and the scoops needed to remain balanced for 10 seconds or more—which wasn’t a problem for Panciera’s stack as he carried his cone outside and casually licked the confection after piling on the scoops.

So what’s the trick to creating such a gigantic gelato?

Panciera credits the quality of the local artisanal gelato for making the record possible—but he’s had some practice in the realm of the over-the-top treats. 

He held the previous record for most scoops on a single cone—109. And he also created the world’s 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.
