Bite Me

Red-Letter Day For Edible Ferrari

A life-size chocolate model of a Ferrari Formula One car has been unveiled in Italy. Confectioners spent more than a year making the car out of 4,405 pounds (2000 kilograms) of Belgian chocolate. It has now been delivered to Sorrento, near Naples, where it will be the centrepiece of a Ferrari owners’ club party. Luigi Liberti, president of the Scuderia Ferrari Club Napoli, said: "It will go on display until the weekend and then will be smashed up with hammers and handed out to party guests." To see a picture of the chocolate Ferrari, which is based on an F2008, and has a red edible coating, go to Ananova.

Chocolate speed.
Seems sacrilegious to smash it up and eat it. It would be much better to slowly lick it away...
Fast driving results in death by chocolate. There's a novel somewhere in this.

David,

That must have been fun working on. I wonder how much chocolate the workers ate. :D What a set of wheels!

I have my children's story formatted and sent on to an illustrator. I know my chances are less having my own illustrator but the story was born from the both of us through blogging.

I should complete my mainstream within six weeks. :D WOOT!!!


Have a happy writing day.

Hugs, JJ

I just emailed the link to my son-in-law who loves Ferraris. When in Italy, I searched high and low to find him something "Ferrari-ish" as a souvenir. Ended up bringing him an authentic T-shirt, a calendar, and a model Ferrari. He was THRILLED and wears that Tee a lot!
