Ice Craving festivals

Ice Craving or Ice sculpture is a form of sculpture that uses ice as the raw material. Sculptures from ice can be abstract or realistic and can be functional or purely decorative. Ice sculptures are generally associated with special or extravagant events because of their limited lifetime.

The lifetime of a sculpture is determined primarily by the temperature of its environment and thus, a sculpture can last from mere minutes to possibly months. There are several ice festivals held around the world, hosting competitions of ice sculpture carving.

The Largest Donut

To celebrate the release of The Simpsons Movie on dvd, the Simpsons family oversaw the construction of the world’s largest doughnut.

It took 40 people over nine hours to build, using over 90,000 doughnuts, half a tonne of pink icing and 30kg of sprinkles from Donut King.

The giant doughnut measures six metres and weighs a whopping 3.5 tonnes, which is the equivalent of two rhinoceroses.
