according to the World Record Academy.

The Guinness World Records' record for the tallest ice cream cone measures 3.08 m (10 ft 1.26 in) in height and was achieved by Hennig-Olsen Is AL and Trond L Wøien (both Norway) at Kristiansand, Norway, on 26 July 2015. The complete Ice Cream Cone consisted of a wafer cone (95.85Kg), Chocolate lining (60Kg), Ice Cream (1080Lt) and Jam (40Kg).
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest scoop of ice-cream weighed 1365kg 312.93g (3,010 lb) and was created by Kemps LLC (USA), in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, USA on 28 June 2014.
The ice-cream had to be airlifted by a helicopter from the ice-cream factory where it was made, to an event in Kristiansand in Southern Norway where a Guinness World Records 'adjudicator' was on hand to verify the attempt.
The previous Guinness World Records record of the tallest ice-cream cone was held since 2011 by a 2.81 metre tall ice-cream cone, made by Mirco Della Vecchia and Andrea Andrighetti (both Italy).
