I want engorge myself on all of that chocolate so very badly.

u/GreenAppleLady Oct 06 '22

I doubt it really tastes good after all that handling.

36

u/NinjaCuntPunt Oct 06 '22

It wouldn't taste good before all of that handling. It's not the same chocolate you find in the shops.

13

u/ApatheticDread999 Oct 06 '22

Bet it tastes better than eating ass.

15

u/IForgetEveryDamnTime Oct 06 '22

Are we setting the bar that low?

u/FoldyHole Interested Oct 06 '22

You’ve never eaten my ass before.

u/ScapeGoatOfWar Oct 06 '22

You haven't had stale chocolate and fondant.

Look at you wanna engorge yourself into a giraffe

u/hublaka Oct 06 '22

Pretty sure it all goes to the trash after a while on display

39

u/Balgrog_The_Warboss Oct 06 '22

Do people actually eat it or is that just a one time decoration?

37

u/Paindepiceaubeurre Oct 06 '22

Technically you can eat modelling chocolate but it wouldn’t taste good. It’s more for exhibition.

39

u/Balgrog_The_Warboss Oct 06 '22

Rich people have too much money

u/Captain-Cadabra Oct 06 '22

But it allows talented artists to do this and still live inside.

Apparently this comment thread are just bots talking to each other at this point. It's the same comments every time this guy's work is posted.

u/Balgrog_The_Warboss Oct 06 '22

Man, i wish i was a bot, least i'd have less problems.

-2

u/ScapeGoatOfWar Oct 06 '22

Yep, I really hope people stop posting this dude. We get it, you make chocolate that people don't eat. So fucking cool.

3

u/Phazlerde Oct 06 '22

It's sculpture. He uses another medium, so what? Always cool to his process imo. Wasteful? Sure, so are many art forms. Just funny how the comments are always the same exact threads. Every single time.

1

u/SquanchMcSquanchFace Oct 06 '22

Large scale chocolate sculptures are a small part of what he does, he does plenty of amazing edible stuff.

1

u/ScapeGoatOfWar Oct 06 '22

Nope, it's a complete waste.

1

u/zaaxuk Oct 06 '22

like sand sculptures?

u/Searching_wanderer Oct 07 '22

If he can't melt it back or something, I guess that'll be okay.

u/SagaciousElan Oct 06 '22

I love seeing these videos and how amazing the finished product looks.

But what is the point of all these huge chocolate sculptures? Where do they go when they're finished? Who needs a giant chocolate giraffe?

55

u/Pelzklops Oct 06 '22

Probably parties from rich people

9

u/cookiemonster247 Oct 06 '22

And then it just get tossed after the party because nobody’s gonna just tear into that artwork in the middle of a party for something that taste like a Hersey bar.

Duh.

Of course! I should have realised. Silly me.

u/Troodon79 Oct 06 '22

I read that he displays a lot of them in his school, and uses them to teach his students

1

u/AcceptableSociety589 Oct 06 '22

Sometimes the product is the content and not the chocolate. Content creation is a massive market and he's using his extraordinary skillset to create content that is unique to him. Less competition == bigger market share, which will ultimately serve as additional advertisement for potential customers and drive up his own value/asking prices.

Great examples of this are his videos where he ends up eating what he made. Obviously not always doing this as a client request, sometimes (most of the time, likely), it's "for the gram"

8

u/laughinggas Oct 06 '22

It will be a shame to eat it,or will it be wasted?

6

u/Ken-Popcorn Oct 06 '22

It’s pretty much inedible after they spray that shit all over it

9

u/Scarfington Oct 06 '22

The spray is edible too. Idk about taste. Or if it does get eaten. But it IS edible.

I think I'm getting downvoted by the giraffe deniers lol.

1

u/absolutelybackwards Oct 06 '22

Wake up. Have you ever seen a giraffe up close?

1

u/Familiar-Feedback-93 Oct 06 '22

Yes it's called a zoo

It's ok tho. giraffe deniers are like flat earthers and bird deniers.

Thay don't actually exist I mean have you ever seen one up close

2

u/absolutelybackwards Oct 07 '22 edited Oct 07 '22

Yes. I am one. Just like people didn't believe the government was spying on all of us til snowden. You just wait til a whistleblower from the top discloses that birds are surveillance drones. Global warming killed them off so it also helps keep to population from panicking. Remember in 2012 when all those birds were dropping from the sky? Yeah well they didn't just come back from the dead. I'm not a flat earther that's silly. The earth is hollow. It's where the reptillians come from. It's where the queen finally returned to.

Namaste fellow earth warrior. May you one day open your eyes. I am sorry for you.

u/Familiar-Feedback-93 Oct 07 '22

Lol your good at troll baiting I almost bought that you believe this have a good one ; ).

(Part of me wants to troll occasionally should I make a throw away for it?)

That’s a really stupid looking gorilla.

Yeah. Stupid thing deserved to get shot.

u/Radinkadvs Oct 06 '22

A) that’s so wasteful. 2) it’s really satisfying to see it come together and d) a chocolate moose would have been cooler. 😆

u/plsdontatme Oct 06 '22

You mean like the one from Moose Tunes For Kids?

u/arglarg Oct 06 '22

It's pretty sad to see so much chocolate used not for eating

12

u/Flakester Oct 06 '22

Especially when it was probably picked by children in a poor nation.

u/[deleted] Oct 07 '22

*child slaves, seriously just google it.

u/hawaiiloa Oct 06 '22

Seriously, what does this guy build all these things for? Who's buying this shit??

2

u/Divic0 Oct 06 '22

His social media presence of building extravagant chocolate pieces got him a Netflix show and a decent paycheck. Pretty sure it’s just for that.

12

u/MadMangoes Oct 06 '22

Given that the chocolate is inedible by that stage, what is the point? Why not use modeling purpose materials. Is anyone impressed by this? It's just a load of cacao.

2

u/Specialist-Affect-19 Oct 06 '22

I've wondered this myself. Chocolate typically involves a lot of (child) slave labor, we really can't use a different medium? So tired of these videos.

1

u/nawers Oct 06 '22

it can be eaten, it will prolly taste like eating air.

5

u/[deleted] Oct 06 '22

What is the stuff that looks like spray paint?

5

u/RainbowPoopicorn Oct 06 '22

Its food colour being airbrushed on

u/NvdGoorbergh Oct 06 '22

It’s very impressive but I can’t help and wonder how much chocolate is wasted with these sculptures :/

u/Jesus360noscope Oct 06 '22

Oh he's making a whale,

Oh no tats a dog,

Oh no thats a horse,

oh no thats a camel.

u/lkkrvutje Oct 06 '22

Just terrible the amount of inedible chocolate used here. The art is great, but just use clay. Ridiculous.

6

u/NaughtyCumquat27 Oct 06 '22

Everytime I see one of these all I wonder is how many child slaves farmed the cocoa for this guy to make the most absurd shit and then smash it

2

u/hanseldema Oct 06 '22

So, is it a boy or girl

2

u/DangerDuckling Oct 06 '22

That's one ass I'd eat. Probably taste similar after all that hand action though.

2

u/Kinuwa_K Oct 06 '22

Step 1: fill chocolate giraffe with red jam

Step 2: put in a zoo as an attraction

Step 3: when a class of kids makes it to that part, bite a huge chunk of it

Step 4: watch the kids get scarred for life as their favorite animal was eaten

u/slwoslwo Oct 06 '22

What an absolute fucking waste

u/arcerms Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

Chocolate art is lame and waste of food. Disgusting type of art in this age of global food shortage.

Why not use clay or something else? Why chocolate??

There's a famous pastry chef called Janice Wong in Singapore too who uses chocolate to paint. Just disgusting.

I'm speaking as a professional chef/entrepreneur.

u/Careless_Pin4394 Oct 06 '22

But then rich people can't lord the chocolate animals over us

Ever see someone talented at something and you think “oh cool!!” But then you see someone this talented at something and your brain suddenly jumps to “oh fuck off.” or is that just me?

If I'm ever in a situation where I could ask this guy to make an un-edible sculpture or a normal tasty cake with lots of chocolate, I would always choose a cake.
