That’s no yolk! ‘World’s largest Easter egg’ weighing 4 TONS and over 27ft high unveiled in Argentina

Weighing in at over four tons, a contender for the world’s largest Easter egg was unveiled to a crowd of chocolate lovers in Argentina today. 

Twenty-seven bakeries worked for two weeks to make enough chocolate for the gargantuan concoction wheeled in to the Chocolate Festival in Bariloche.

Towering over 27ft high (8.5m) and 16ft wide (5m), the sweet treat required a reported 8,800lbs (4,000kgs) of chocolate, hovering over a sea of spectators who gathered for a taste.

The major of San Carlos de Bariloche, Omar Goye, was present at the festival, where the Easter egg was to be certified by the Guinness Records as the world’s largest.   

 

Chocolatier Diego Ferraris told Esenciapatagonia.com the Easter egg was assembled using a wooden mold as foundation for the chocolate spread.

Pastry chefs, led by master baker Hugo Sosa, attached blocks of chocolate to the frame. 

The chocolate egg is said to have beaten the previous record for the world’s largest, built in Belgium, which stood 8.32m (27.3ft) high.

But temperatures in the region meant crowds didn’t have long to admire the egg before it started melting.

Chefs used cranes to break off chunks of the chocolate and hand them out to the crowd as the sun beamed down. 

The Chocolate Festival has lured chocolatiers and chocolate lovers to the region since 1969 with events, races and other chocolate-themed activities. 

The festival this year ran from March 31-April 8.

Easter is something I could let pass me by this year; if it were not for Jesus Christ. The decorations, candy, the ideas that go along with kids is pretty much at ground zero in my home.

I think of Al even more as I walk through the store. It reminds me of last year when Al was still at the nursing home. I had visited him and brought with me Easter cookies, a case of diet coke, and lots of candy.

At the time I knew  I was foolish buying him all that unhealthy stuff, but this year I smile big as I am so thankful I did what I did. The good thing is Al is there now. It is so amazing to know that he doesn’t have to go to the movies to watch Easter themes. He is right there, walking beside Jesus. Oh how lucky he…

EASTER

EASTER

Newly hatched eggs

Bring little chicks,

Bouncing lambs

And new born pigs

We hunt for eggs

And tasty sweets,

Chocolate bunnies

Lots of treats.

New sunny days

The winter has gone,

Colourful flowers

A bright spring sun.

Bright red skies

New things to see

Loving the Springtime

Feeling free.

EASTER TIME

EASTER T

 

Easter time is upon us

Spring has come at last

Displaying all her beauty

Like a carpet she has cast

 

Out of the dreary winter

With colours of every shade

A breath-taking panorama

That Mother Nature has made

 

Frogs in the Lilly ponds

With frogspawn all around

Soon there will be tadpoles

Jumping up and down

Birds are also busy

Building with haste and zest

Making ready for new life

As they build their precious nest

 

 Children prepare their Easter bonnets

Decorated with chicks eggs and glue

Display them at the Easter Parade

For the delights of me and you

 

It’s a time of new beginnings

To focus on new things to do

 Be more positive in your thinking

To create a better future for you

EASTER EGGS

Super taste such a treat

 

Test one out without a doubt

 

Eat them till you’re nearly sick

 

Real chocolate treat for everyone

Eggs-travagant! World’s most expensive Easter egg costs £5million and has 1,000 diamonds

CREME Eggs don’t look as exciting now the world’s most glitzy and expensive Easter treat is on the scene. However at a cool £5million you’ll need to be a billionaire to shell out for this sparkly one-off piece…

A cross between a luxury Faberge egg and the Damien Hirst skull, the Mirage is a unique gem that only the Simon Cowells and Richard Bransons of this world can afford.

The incredible ornament has more than 1,000 diamonds on its “shell”, worth £1.5million alone, 100 of which are a unique cut.

The jewel-encrusted egg then opens up to reveal an ornate globe which was hand-crafted in 18 carat gold. Within the globe, a rock crystal dove with a gold beak and gems for eyes, is perched on a lavish gold olive branch.

The dove and olive branch were hand carved and were included as symbols of world peace.

Mirage has taken a whopping three years to make, with work carried out by elite craftsmen across three continents.

Manfred Wild, the main man responsible for Mirage’s design and assembly, has brought the creation to life.

Vashi Dominguez, jeweller to the stars and the diamond entrepreneur, is trying to persuade the mystery owner of this masterpiece to sell Mirage.

“Mirage is, quite simply, one of the finest jewels ever created,” said Dominguez. “The owner has said he has no intention of selling the wondrous piece, but if someone really wants it I can see if we can come to an agreement.

“The diamonds alone are worth more than £1.5 million while labour costs were around the same.” 

At £5million, Mirage would cost the same price as a posh London home or 30 times the price of a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar.

If the average Brit saved their entire salary, it would take them 243 years before they could afford Mirage.

However, Mr Dominguez believes the owner would end up wanting more.

“The owner doesn’t need to sell Mirage, but it is all about one-upmanship in the world of the billionaire and money does talk.

“Owning this special item would be a great coup for someone to whom money is no object.”
