(Scroll down for video) An ice cream lover managed to hit a world record by creating a cone topped with 121 scoops of frozen dessert, according to the Guinness World Records.

Dimitri Panciera of Italy, held the previous world record of 109 ice cream scoops in a single cone.

Now, he managed to balance 121 ice cream scoops in a single cone at the annual Gelatimo ice-cream festival in Forno di Zoldo.

The record was achieved despite the fact that the ice cream cone’s opening was less the 4 inches in diameter. After placing the 121 scoops of ice cream on the cone, Panciera balanced them for more than 10 seconds.

Panciera revealed that his secret to success is by using artisan ice cream produced in the Val di Zoldo area. Dimitri is also the record holder of the world’s largest ice cream scoop.

Dimitri served the world’s largest ice cream scoop by using a spoon that measures about 6 and a half feet long, nearly two feet wide, and a half a foot deep.
