Fairmont Dubai has revealed a giant chocolate egg, located in the hotel lobby, made from 80kg of 55% dark chocolate.

The egg has been created by Fairmont Dubai executive pastry chef Romain Castet. It stands more than 2.5 metres tall, weighs 200 kilogrammes and is estimated to contain just over 436,000 calories.

It took Fairmont Dubai’s engineering and culinary team, with Castet spearheading the process, four weeks to handcraft the centerpiece for the hotel lobby ahead of Easter celebrations.


Castet said in a statement: "We are very proud to have successfully completed this spectacular project. Constructing the egg wasn’t easy due to its enormous size, but it is definitely one of the most Instagrammable lobby centerpieces our guests have ever seen."

The Easter egg will be on display at Fairmont Dubai from March 18-April 8, 2018.
