Artist Nathan Wyburn used around 100 cones, 50 scoops of ice-cream, 3kg of raspberry, chocolate and caramel sauce, 1kg of hundreds and thousands, 75 chocolate flakes and 250 wafers.
Some 30 per cent of Brits say Southgate, 50, is the coolest Brit, a FoodHub poll suggests.
He was followed by Three Lions stars Marcus Rashford, 23, with 18 per cent, and Bukayo Saka, 19, on 13 per cent.
The Queen, actor Daniel Craig, 53, and radio host Maya Jama, 26, all made the top 10 list.
Nathan said: “What Gareth Southgate and his team have done this year – to get to England’s first final since 1966 – was an incredible achievement that really resonated with the nation, especially after such a difficult 16 months of lockdown.

“It’s been an honour to create a portrait of him to celebrate his achievements – and using the ingredients of the classic ice cream cone, while a real challenge.”
FoodHub CEO Ardian Mula added: “Celebrating what Gareth Southgate has done for this country is really important and we wanted to do it in a way that is true to the Foodhub ethics.
“So, as desserts are now a big part of the takeaway delivery business and it is officially National Ice Cream Month, making a portrait of Gareth out of ice cream cone ingredients was a no-brainer.”
