Take a Bite Out of Benedict Cumberbatch: Star Actor Made Into Chocolate Sculpture

Sculptor and chocolatier create edible model of ”Imitation Game“ star out of Belgian milk chocolate

Movie star, beautiful wife and now chocolate version of himself—Benedict Cumberbath has the life.

The latter was made to mark the launch of a new drama channel on UKTV; 2,000 women were asked to name the tastiest man in TV drama.

Cumberbath was the victor with 12 percent of the vote, resulting in a team of eight people, led by a sculptor and chocolatier, to create a chocolate version of Cumberbatch out of Belgian milk chocolate.

“The striking thing about Benedict is he’s got quite a thin face but quite a large head so trying to get that look right is tricky,” the chocolatier said.

The cocoa version of Benedict will appear in Stratford, London on Good Friday: “I’ve got a feeling that some women will take a look at him and decide he’s delicious in more than one way,” he continued.


Cumberbatch married Sophie Hunter on Valentine’s Day; the two are expecting their first child.

The tasty version of Cumberbatch has gone to Twitter, as social users are eating #Chocobatch since Wednesday.
