18,239-Pound Chocolate Temples
Qzina Specialty Foods Chocolate Sculpture Sets a New World Record

By: Romina S. Cortellucci (Star) May 18, 12

The Qzina Specialty Foods Chocolate Sculpture more than doubles the previous Guinness World Record chocolate sculpture. Commissioned to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the chocolate and pastry company Qzina Specialty Foods, this sculpture is epic, to say the least. The company’s Corporate Pastry Chef Francois Mellet and MOF Stephane Treand lead the production of this over 6 foot-tall colossal giant.

Incredibly detailed, the project took over 400 hours to craft the replica Mayan temple. The sculpture’s Mayan theme is due to the history of chocolate and the worship of the Cacao trees tied to the Mayan culture. Displayed at the Qzina Institute of Chocolate & Pastry located in Irvine, California, the sculpture will be open to see by the public on June 4th. The end of the Mayan calendar will mark the destruction of the chocolate temple on December 21, 2012.
