DQ Takes the Cake


TORONTO — Dairy Queen Canada made history, yesterday, May 10, building a 10-tonne ice-cream cake that set a Guinness World Record.

“After 30 years and 52-million cakes, we thought building a 10-tonne cake would be a great challenge for our team and help us raise “tonnes” of money for Children’s Miracle Network and The Hospital for Sick Children,” said Denise Hutton, vice-president of Marketing at Dairy Queen Canada. “It took nearly 100 people over a year to plan for this record attempt, and we couldn’t be happier with the result.”

The cake, which was comprised of 20,000 pounds of ice cream, more than 200 pounds of sponge cake, and more than 300 pounds of icing and Oreo crumble, took DQ experts 14 hours to assemble in Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square.

Dairy Queen beat the previous record, set in Beijing, by nearly 500 pounds.
