Huge Chocolate Christmas Tree

A French chocolatier has created a 32-foot-high chocolate Christmas tree in his laboratory in Paris. 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.” w/ video
