Madame Cocoa

A few weeks ago, I met a very special lady who happens to live at the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, NC.
 Her name is Madame Cocoa and she is a life-sized figure made completely out of chocolate, including her body and accessories.

She was created by the Ritz-Carlton's Pastry Chef, Josh Cain.  It took him 95 hours of work and 75 lbs of chocolate to create this lovely lady.  This was his first full-figure project and to achieve a life-like effect, he bought a mannequin, shoes, and a handbag and then proceeded to cut these items in half and fill the cavity with chocolate to create the perfect mould.
