Chocolatiers create fairyland themed egg that’s big on bites

Cadbury World chocolatiers have created a mouth-watering 2.5ft tall egg to celebrate Easter – the equivalent of 844 standard Dairy Milk bars.

Gail Deeley and Sian Patterson made the fairyland-themed egg over two days, which has a shell  four centimetres thick.

The egg, weighing around 38kg, has been decorated with hand-piped flowers, blades of grass, fairies and a blossom tree.

The egg will be on display in Birmingham at Cadbury World’s Chocolate Making zone throughout its Easter celebrations, until April 28.
