WORLD'S LARGEST CHOCOLATE SCULPTURE IS TRIBUTE TO MAYANS To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Qzina Specialty Foods bosses have set a new Guinness World Record for the largest chocolate sculpture. The sweet replica of a Mayan temple weighs a staggering 18,239 pounds (8,273 kilograms). Qzina's corporate pastry chef Francois Mellet and pastry artist Stephane Treand decided to create a scale model of the Temple of Kukulkan at Chichen Itza since the ancient civilization played a crucial role in the discovery of chocolate. The chocolate pyramid features all the details of the original building, down to the number of steps and panels, and is exactly 1/30th the size of the landmark. It will be on display at the Qzina Institute of Chocolate & Pastry in Irvine, California, from 4 June, 2012 until 21 December, 2012 - when the Mayan calendar comes to an end. Irvine, California.
