Talk about a good egg! This giant chocolate beauty was designed by Jacques Torres. The chocolatier, along with several big names in fashion, will be participating in Fabergé's 2014 Big Egg Hunt. Artists and industry insiders will design and display their eggs throughout New York's five boroughs.
The egg designs range from Bruce Weber's collage of Kate Moss to Marchesa's blinged out silver-gilded egg to Ralph Lauren's western wear design. They'll be eye candy for kids and grown-ups alike.
Torres' chocolate egg is no frou-frou looking Easter candy.
Standing 30 inches tall and weighing more 120 pounds, his egg captures the sultry cityscape of New York. The egg was a collaboration with sculptor, Carter Jones, and Mr. Chocolate himself, Jacques Torres, who have worked skillfully at creating skyline appliques made from chocolate.
Worth its weight in gold? Torres certainly hopes so. Once the eggs have been hunted down, all 260 of them will be auctioned off with proceeds going to Elephant Family and Studio in a School. Torres hopes to beat the world record for the most expensive chocolate egg at $11,107. Any takers? After all, it's a small price to pay for a very sweet ending.
While the location of all the eggs are meant to be kept hush-hush, this secret is too delish to keep to ourselves. Check out NYC at its tastiest at Jacques Torres' Dumbo location, 66 Water Street, Brooklyn.
