It’s very much a thing these days to combine several huge food ideas to form one mouth-watering explosion of flavor. When New York City pastry chef Dominique Ansel invented the Cronut—or croissant-doughnut—in 2013, he made food history. TIME magazine even voted the delicacy one of the 25 Best Inventions of the Year.

Well Dum Dum Donutterie in London's Camden Market has seen Ansel’s bet, and raised it. They’ve invented the croissant-doughnut ice-cream cone—a sugary concoction in which croissant-doughnut dough is baked into a cone shape, then filled with scoops of artisan ice cream and homemade sauces, and sprinkled with a variety of toppings. You'll never look at a plain vanilla cone the same way again.
