Could he possibly be made out of chocolate?
I have seen tin soldiers, wooden soldiers but never one as perfect as this made out of pure solid chocolate, 100% edible and handcrafted by Andrew Farrugia, a world renowned chocolate artist and carver.
This solid chocolate Nutcracker Soldier is Andrew’s Christmas present to me. I am delighted and as he stands very proudly on a shelf in my living room, it reminds me how truly gifted Andrew is.
And I am so very pleased that Andrew will be sharing his work with us every few weeks.
