Eggstravaganza






The Belgian chocolate made the chocolate egg with at least 50.000 bars.The egg measured 8.32m high.Twenty-six craftsman worked altogether 525 hours to build the easter egg. They needed 1950 kg of chocolate.Alderman Urbain Vercauteren of the city of St.Niklaas said the egg wasn't meant to be eaten. He said: "After a week outside


in all weather conditions, I don't think it would be very tasteful."


Happy Easter!

After eating all those Easter eggs, How many cannibals could your body feed?

Happy Easter to you and C Casdock. I wanted to chill out over Easter, but not to this extreme.

I love your eggs, especially the cityscape, what TLC, someone has spent hours getting all of those exactly lined up & must have a real 3D head for heights! I think my fav though has got to be the chocoholics diet pill, I know a few people in my family that need one of those. We are all adults this year, so were supposed to be having an egg free Easter, however both my Mum and Sister (who is now working at Cadbury's) have turned up with large quantities of chocolate, it just isn't in egg form!!!

CrazyCath said...

They are fabulous! I love the egg family shocked at the broken one, and the egg city! But the best one has to be what looks to me like a lot of lovely male bodies hatching....
Or maybe wishful thinking. :-8

MarmiteToasty said...

ps....... one of the eggs that Janet laid last week, I took out, drew a face on, and put back in the coop, so that the little nipper Ellis that I childmind could go get the egg...... you should of seen his face when he pulled it out of the straw LMFAO...... he really believes Janet lays eggs with faces, now I have to make sure the ones in the fridge all have faces on LOL

I'm still laughing at the faces on the eggs waiting to get fried!!

Mrs. Darling said...

I havent been here for a few days and my goodness how much you have going on over here. These are awesome pics!

family affairs said...

Oh to hatch eggs that had those men in....how many would you need for a spanish omelette?

lastcrazyhorn said...

12 cannibals for me. I do scrambled eggs and ketchup myself, if I do eggs at all. Either that or soft boiled.

As for the egg city, that just gave me unsavory chills . . . you should put potentially OCD triggering warnings on pics like that! lol
