Chocolate Easter Roast Lunch for Aldi

Every Easter Lunch should involve a fair amount of chocolate but is this too much for you?

After an incredible launch for Chocolatician with the Cumberbunnies it was back to the chocolate casting for Jen, Chocolatician and the gang from Plunge Productions (sculptures and mould makers extraordinaires) for a super tasty job for Aldi for Easter 2016.

 The Task was to create a full size chocolate roast lunch for a family of four. This was to include table, four chairs, vegetables, leg of lamb, wine bottle and glasses, condiments, cutlery, crockery and a plate of hot cross buns. Everything you can see in these fab images (Aldi/Crate47) is cast or clad from delicious, smooth and luxurious chocolate.

It took three weeks in total to create this chocolate masterpiece and over 50kg of chocolate.

After its completion it was taken for a trip to London and assembled on the South Bank of the River Thames for the public to sit at and have a good sniff. There were a few peas consumed and plenty of children and pigeons swarming to chance their luck on a nibble or two. 

Thankfully it made it in one piece to the Supermarket's Head Quarters who commissioned it and they used it to promote their easter products and spread the word on how 'This Easter, at Aldi, customers can feed a family of four a roast lunch for a mere £3.80 per head – cheaper than a single luxury Easter egg in most UK supermarkets.'
