Fans of chocolate, Easter, and Benedict Cumberbatch rejoice! The Cumberbunny will come hop hop hopping along this easter from chocolate artisan company ‘Choclatician’. The Sherlock star not only looks good on television but this stylish handmade piece will look just as good in a weaved basket this Easter. Molding Cumberbatch into chocolate is becoming a tradition to the artisans at ‘Choclatician’. The UK-based company received press last year when they made a life-size sculpture of Cumberbatch using 500 bars of Belgian chocolate. The whole affair was a promotion for UKTV’s new channel that focused on drama programmes. Artisan Jen Lindsey-Clark who was involved in last years sculpting is solely responsible for this year’s offering. Admirers of Mr. Cumberbatch, who would have little reason to meet him in real life, can at least come face-to-face with his Belgian counterpart. The Cumberbunny can keep for six months apparently, but one wonders would buyers of the Cumberbunny eat it right away or just store it only to occasionally pat its bunny bottom.
