Commissioned by Dr. Oetker and crafted by baking expert Juliet Sear, the entirely edible seven foot tall Bunny Bum took over 110 hours to create using more than 3,000 bars of Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks’ Chocolate.
In anticipation of Easter and to the delight of London’s chocoholics, Dr. Oetker’s sweet bunny brought a smile to commuters’ faces today in Potters Fields Park. Passers-by were astounded as they saw the Easter Bunny’s Bum burrowing into the grass, admiring its perfectly round tail and eight foot ears.
Built with her crafty hands and with a hop in her step, Juliet constructed the bunny installation during a 10 day period with over 450kg of Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks’ Milk Chocolate. Melting the chocolate to make it flexible and mouldable, Juliet made the giant creation piece by piece, allowing parts to dry overnight to connect and harden. The final touches on the eight foot ears and adorable paws were then prepared with Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks’ White chocolate.
“During Easter, everyone automatically thinks of chocolate eggs. When Dr. Oetker came to me wanting to champion the Easter bunny, I was excited to create something a little different. When you undertake such an ambitious project, quality ingredients are key to succeed. After some expected challenges with the first-time creation, my team and I had lots of fun and were all so proud to have completed it. Move over chocolate egg, there’s somebunny new in town!” - Juliet Sear
Dr. Oetker is encouraging consumers who saw the giant Bunny Bum to share images of it on the brand’s Twitter page @DrOetkerBakes using #BunnyBum to be in the chance of winning one of three luxury Easter hampers.
