HIGHLIGHTS

  • Pastry chef Amaury Guichon’s chocolate giraffe has taken the internet by storm.
  • The 8.3-foot-tall sculpture is his largest creation to date.
  • A viral video of the making of the chocolate giraffe has been viewed over 80 million times on Instagram.

Giraffes are tall…unbelievably tall, we’re talking 15 to 20 feet. If they stood in a crowd of humans, they would have a bird’s eye view with videographers rushing to mount this ruminant.

By these standards, an 8-foot-tall giraffe would be a squeaker, but special. What makes it even more special is that it is a chocolate giraffe that many cannot tell apart from a real one and when juxtaposed with humans it would still be the tallest of the room.
And that’s exactly what’s going viral this week — an ubiquitous video of an eight-foot-tall sculpture of a chocolate giraffe. This is what pastry chef Amaury Guichon does best.
A specialist in zoomorphic culinary arts, Guichon recently captured the internet’s fascination with his “greatest chocolate creation” to date – a lifelike hoof sculpture.

The video opens with the pastry chef pouring melted chocolate into a gigantic egg-shaped container before working with ovular chocolate drops. It doesn’t look like much until he designs the details intricately and suddenly the whole animal starts to come together.

Lo and behold, an 8.3-foot-tall exotic sculpture made entirely of chocolate is ready.

Sharing his latest artwork on Instagram, Guichon wrote, “Standing 8.3 feet tall and weighing 160 pounds, this is definitely my greatest chocolate creation ever!. It took me 7 days and made me find new techniques in order to achieve this final result. Hard to believe you can create so much using only 100% chocolate!”
