The official birth of the ice cream cone was done by Marchioni. Marchioni was an ice-cream seller in New York City, and he has immigrated from Italy. He applied for a patent for his cone on September 22, 1903. And now that day became the national ice cream cone day. Marchioni claimed that he has been making cones to hold ice cream since 1896.
