Enormous Chocolate Sculptures at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore

Shangri-La Hotel Singapore, Chocolate Sculptures

Traveling to Singapore? Make a beeline for the Shangri-La Hotel, where some incredible chocolate sculptures are on display in the lobby until April 30. The hotel is celebrating its 40th birthday in a sweet way: talented pastry chefs from Shangri-La hotels in Dubai, Bangkok, Beijing and Singapore are creating art with chocolate, demonstrating their own interpretation of the “Lost Horizon” using chocolate blocks. You can witness the chefs at work, a pair at a time, in the lobby until the 27th. These eight giant sculptures- made from the finest Belgian chocolate- measure two meters tall and weigh in at 1,200 kilos.

Drooling over the live chocolate carving exhibit may just have you lusting for something sweet. Lucky you: In conjunction with the exhibit, Lobby Court is presenting a series of thematic afternoon tea treats: pastries made with local fruit until April 17, then tea-flavored sweets and berries, followed by a decadent chocolate buffet (40 different types of desserts!) until May 1. Priced at SGD 38 per adult daily from 2 pm- 5 pm. More photos can be viewed on Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts' Facebook page.
