Making (and Breaking) a Chocolate Piñata

Making (and Breaking) a Chocolate Piñata

One thing you have to get used to if you’re a pastry artist is that your work will eventually be eaten. In the case of Amaury Guichon’s chocolate piñata, this work of art is about to be demolished with a baseball bat. It took him five days to make it and seconds to smash it to pieces. We hope he shared some with the camera crew.

Pastry chef Amaury Guichon continues to wow us with his epic chocolate creations. For this build, he created a 3.5-foot-tall sculpture of a robotic arm out of 90 pounds of dark chocolate. Not only does it look awesome, its hinges move, and its gripper has mechanical gears.

You don’t often see a pastry artist standing on top of a ladder to work on a piece. Amaury Guichon shows off his biggest chocolate creation yet – an 8.3-foot-tall sculpture of a giraffe. It looks way too good to eat, but if you forced us to, we’d start with the ears and ossicones and work our way down.

No, that’s not a typo. Pastry artist Amaury Guichon created these realistic-looking headphones using a beet sponge cake layered with fresh raspberry mousse, a raspberry and yuzu compote, a red sable, and a raspberry cremeux. They don’t sound as good as Beats headphones, but these taste much better.

Making a Chocolate Dragon

Master chocolatier and pastry chef Amaury Guichon is back with another epic edible sculpture. This time, he created a detailed purple dragon that breathes dry ice “smoke” from its mouth. It’s an amazing build, but we couldn’t help but laugh at its phallic looks halfway through the build.

This Is Not a Banana

Pastry artist Amaury Guichon continues to wow us with his incredible dessert creations. Watch as he carves up sheets of chocolate, assembles, and decorates them to create a dangerously delicious weapon that looks like a gun from a video game.

Pastry artist Amaury Guichon never ceases to amaze us with his his edible creations. This time, he made a beautifully detailed and precise replica of a vintage telescope. It sits atop a chocolate tripod stand and is covered with a shiny gold finish. The sugar optics are crystal clear, and its geared tilt mechanism even works.

Every time pastry artist Amaury Guichon creates a dessert, we can’t decide whether to stare at our screen or drool on the keyboard. For this bake, he created a set of tiny edible skateboards, each with a faux wood cookie deck layered with gooey caramel, riding on chocolate wheels, and sparkly “deck tape” decoration on top.

Chocolate Statue of Liberty
