Chocolatiers Make Life-Size Statue of Benedict MakeMeCumberbatch



The hottest man in England has recently had a life-size statue made entirely out of chocolate fashioned in his likeness. According to the UK's Standard, "The 38-year-old actor's chocolate doppelganger was created to celebrate the launch of television channel Drama on the new on-demand service uktvplay.co.uk following a national poll which named the Oscar nominated star as Britain’s best looking television drama actor."






Apparently, the statue took 250 man-hours to create. Tim Simpson was the lead sculptor for this and of the project, he said, "You can't rush perfection. Benedict has such a distinctive look that it was a challenge but a pleasure to recreate him in chocolate. A secret combination of methods ensured we got a great likeness - we're sure his legions of fans will approve!"
