Giant Chocolate Christmas Tree

Monday, March 21, 2011
This is amazing!  From Nov. 27,  2010,  found on The Telegraph, you can view the video here and see the giant chocolate tree.

Patrick Roger's creation will be used to raise funds for a television charity event to support research into neuromuscular diseases.
The tree, which is currently towering inside the chocolatier's factory in Sceaux, weighs four tons and according to Mr Roger's is a piece of "architecture".
He said: "To achieve this kind of architecture – because this really is a piece of architecture – we used a sort of cavity inside to make the chocolate solid enough, because there is very strong vertical pressure."
The chocolate Christmas tree will be shown on France's Telethon, a nationwide charity appeal show, and viewers will receive part of the sugary sculpture in exchange for a donation.
Mr Roger's laboratory also features a wide range of other chocolate sculptures, including small Santas, reindeers and other figurines.
