Cad­bury makes Wind­sor Cas­tle out of choco­late

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

Cad­bury has marked the forth­com­ing royal wed­ding by cre­at­ing a 110lb (50kg) choco­late replica of part of Wind­sor Cas­tle – com­plete with hand­crafted sol­diers wear­ing bearskin hats.

Ex­pert choco­latiers have put the 2ft 6in (75cm) tall cre­ation, which took four days to make, on dis­play at the Cad­bury World vis­i­tor at­trac­tion in Birm­ing­ham.

Fash­ioned us­ing a mix of milk and white choco­late, the de­sign de­picts the front fa­cade and tur­rets – with St Ge­orge’s Chapel vis­i­ble in the back­ground.

Said to com­prise the equiv­a­lent of 1,111 bars of stan­dard Cad­bury’s Dairy Milk, the cas­tle’s bricks have been in­di­vid­u­ally hand-scored along­side an in­tri­cate coat of arms and choco­late flow­ers.

Diane Mitchell, mar­ket­ing man­ager at Cad­bury World, said: “Our choco­latiers never fail to cre­ate some­thing fit for roy­alty to cel­e­brate a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, but I think the choco­late Wind­sor Cas­tle may well be their crown­ing glory.”

She con­tin­ued: “We look for­ward to shar­ing the cre­ation up-close with Cad­bury World vis­i­tors and wish Prince Harry and Meghan a won­der­ful and very happy life to­gether.”

Cad­bury has pre­vi­ously crafted a choco­late rock­ing horse for the birth of Prince Louis, a choco­late pram for Princess Char­lotte, and a choco­late cot with a range of toys for the birth of Prince Ge­orge.
