Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

There are certain creations that make us wonder what could have possibly been going through the minds of the people that are responsible for them. Chef Amaury Guichon of the Pastry Academy in Las Vegas is always crafting new and interesting items that have us shell-shocked once we have the chance to see the finished product.

The treat that you are about to see is certainly no different in this regard. The chocolate sculptures that this man creates are breathtaking. You are sure to be astounded by this one, that is for sure.

The lengths that he went to in order to sculpt this chocolate giraffe are incredible. There are not a lot of chefs that would be willing to do what he has done here. Luckily, we are given the chance to take in Guichon’s creations on a regular basis.

The finished product will blow you away. This is one of the largest sculptures he’s made in a career that has been full of them. The giraffe stands at over eight feet tall and weighs over 160 pounds.

The wildest part about this finished product is how lifelike it looks. It doesn’t even look like a chocolate giraffe to us. It looks like Guichon came across this creature in the wild and we cannot get over it. The work that he puts in on these sculptures is hard to top but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

The sculpture took 7 days to create and involved Guichon implementing new techniques to achieve the end result.

While it’s 100% chocolate, it’s hard to imagine digging in to eat such a masterpiece! Check out the video below to see more of the giraffe and the process of creating it:
