In the video, we see Guichon sketching part of a car’s design on paper. He then traces the design onto a layer of flattened chocolate. He carefully cuts and assembles the different parts of the car. He adds intricate details to make the sculpture look as lifelike as possible. Then he spray-paints it white-silver. He goes on to craft wheels for the car—completely out of chocolate, of course. He even adds spokes to the wheels and matches their colour! Watch the full reel below:
