Ernest A. Hamwi from Syria was the one to credit for a similar invention. He introduced his waffle pastry to the St. Louis World’s Fair 1904. Although it was intended to be used as a pastry, Mr. Hamwi offered his assistance when the nearby ice cream shop ran out of food. He was able solve the problem of his neighboring shop owner by rolling one of his wafer pastries in a cone. This helped him to create an American icon.
