Commissioned by Mattel, Plunge created a five-foot-tall, giant sculpture of Thomas the Tank Engine in chocolate this Easter.  On display at King’s Cross station over the Easter weekend, this tasty bit of food art caused quite a stir and got lots of media coverage.

Here are some of the news websites which covered it – BBC Newsround, ITN, The Sun, Telegraph, Evening Standard, The Argus

The giant chocolate Thomas took 3 people 250 hours to create, was made of around 100kg of Belgian chocolate and weighed in at over 140kg.

We used a mix of white, milk and dark chocolate to make Thomas.  Because of how recognised it is, it was Thomas’ face which took the most time to get just right.
