Confessions of an Ice Cream Twirler

Time to fess up! Yours truly actually began his dessert career working in a Dairy Queen at the age of 14 years old. Back then I was flippin’ burgers and filling french fry orders at the Marine City Dairy Queen in Michigan (one of the largest, and BEST, Dairy Queens in the Midwest). Eventually, I worked my way up to front counter and drive through, joining the denizens of high school workers who twirled soft serve ice cream a top cones (then dipped!), scooping spanish nuts into Peanut Buster Parfaits, candies into Blizzards and creating those WONDERFUL ice cream cakes.

Color me shocked to hear that just yesterday Dairy Queen broke the Guinness Book of World Record for the LARGEST ICE CREAM CAKE EVER. While you may not have had the history I’ve had with the DQ, you may enjoy the article as much as I did:

I also found this video on YouTube that records the epic event:

 

Now, if only I can find the world’s biggest spoon…
