From the candy craftsmen that brought you ‘Cumberbunny’, an Easter sensation which portrayed British actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s head on the shoulders of a chocolate bunny, complete with ears and a 22 carat gold edible bowtie built entirely of chocolate, and Chocobatch, a lifesize statue made out of 500 melted bars of luxurious Belgian chocolate, comes their latest offering, ‘The Chocolate Queen.’

Head chocolatiere at Brighton based Chocolatician, Jen Lindsey-Clark, felt it would be fitting to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday with the creation of a 5kg chocolate sculpture of Elizabeth II, true to scale. In true Royal fashion, her beloved pets also received Belgian chocolate counterparts, produced in milk, dark and white chocolate.

But how does a process like this begin?

Using over 50 photo references, Tim Simpson of Plunge Productions sculpts the Royal bust out of 20kg of clay. This mould was then used by the Chocolatician to create this majestic masterpiece, as well as her corgis, which she is rarely seen without. 360 long hours of painstaking artistry later, and the final piece is ready to be unveiled, just in time for the Trooping the Colour ceremony and Her Majesty’s unofficial birthday.
