Check out life-sized ‘Sherlock’ made of chocolate!


Benedict¬†Cumberbatch is a famous British actor who stars in the critically acclaimed television show Sherlock. ¬†He has also voiced the dragon Smaug from the movie series Hobbit. The task wasn’t attained easily though. It took a crew of 8 to put in a hectic 250 hours into sculpting the British actor. And here’s another fact; more than 40 kilograms of chocolate were used in the process. The chocolatiers decided to honor the Sherlock in the wake of a British online poll conducted which labelled him as the most ‘Dishiest TV drama actor’.

The striking thing about Benedict is that he’s got quite a thin face but he has got quite a large head,” said chocolate sculptor Tim Simpson in a video on the making of the creation.

“So, trying to get that look right is quite tricky.”
