TORONTO — Dairy Queen Canada its celebrating the 30th birthday of its ice-cream cake tomorrow, May 10, by attempting to build the world’s largest ice-cream cake at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square.
“Toronto is in for a tasty deep freeze,” says Denise Hutton, vice-president of Marketing at Dairy Queen Canada, of the Guinness World Record attempt. “Our cake engineers will do all the heavy lifting to build this 21,000-lb. ice-cream cake, but we need Toronto to come out and help us eat up our Guinness World Record.”
The enormous cake will include more than 20,000 lbs. of ice cream, 200 lbs. of sponge cake and 300 lbs. of icing and Oreo crumble. It will be assembled by a team of approximately 100 DQ experts. Free slices will be handed out at noon.
Special guests Brian Burke, president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Olympic medallist Cheryl Bernard will join patient ambassadors from SickKids and Children’s Miracle Network at the event.
Any donations from the world record attempt will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
