#Chocobatch Mania!!! 

What a fabulous project to have been involved in over the last few months, a chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch...lovingly nicknamed ..the Chocobatch .

We were very excited at the prospect of  working with the amazing team of sculptors and prop makers at Plunge Productions when getting the call from them to ask for chocolate assistance in the making of this 6ft high, 44kg heavy, hunk of choco chunk.

Taylor Herring had approached the Brighton based prop company to make them the life-sized chocolate sculpture of Benedict Cumberbatch for UKTV this Easter. He was to go on display at Westfield Shopping Centre to celebrate the launch of Drama on UKTV’s on demand service.

It took three weeks to make and over 100hrs of chocolate artistry to finish the project. Once erected on his plinth at Westfield it was a pleasure to watch as the public marvelled at his luxurious elegance and rich aroma. Some couldn’t resist his chocolate charms and had a nibble...oopsie!

This may be the start of a beautifully sweet partnership between Plunge and She Bakes taking the world of chocolate art by storm...what next?? Choctor Watson, Choctor Who have been some suggestions. Who would you like to see immortalised in the good stuff?

A life-size chocolate sculpture of the acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch has been unveiled following a national poll which named the star as Britain's dishiest TV drama actor. The Sherlock star beat off strong competition from Broadchurch's David Tennant, and Homeland's Damien Lewis to claim the tasty title ahead of the forthcoming Easter weekend break.

We left a life-size chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch in a busy shopping centre. Could people resist? The anatomically correct sculpture was created to celebrate the launch of TV channel Drama on the new on demand service http://uktvplay.uktv.co.uk/
