Chocolate model made of Benedict Cumberbatch for Easter
Chocolate model made of Benedict Cumberbatch for Easter!
A tasty model of Benedict Cumberbatch has been created using chocolate.
Some of the Sherlock star’s fans, known as Cumberbitches, may say he looks good enough to eat – but now he really is.
A life-size sculpture was created out of cocoa to celebrate him being voted the dishiest dramatic actor on UK TV.
A survey, for new on demand drama channel uktvplay, asked 2,000 women to name the man they find the tastiest in TV drama. Cumberbatch came out on top, with 12% of the vote.
As a result a team of eight people, including a sculptor and a chocolatier, were commissioned to recreate an edible model of Cumberbatch out of Belgian milk chocolate.
It took 250 hours to complete the hollow figure, which weighs 40kg (six stone).
The sculpture will be on display to the public at Westfield Stratford City in east London on Friday.
Broadchurch star David Tennant was runner-up in the survey, followed by former Game Of Thrones actor Sean Bean.
