1. Uncover the Ingredients: What is it made of?

The Christmas centrepiece is crafted entirely from real chocolate, with no other material involved in the building process.

2. Where Did the Idea for This Year’s Theme Come From?

We asked our Pierre Debono about the inspiration behind this masterpiece, and here’s what he had to say: “The idea for incorporating a telephone box into the Christmas sculpture, was born from the traditional Maltese telephone boxes around the island, slowly being transformed into libraries.” Changing from a medium to communicate to storytelling. The chosen theme adds a touch of local culture to the sculpture, making it even more special.

3. The Actual Architecture of the Sculpture

The entire sculpture is adorned with small Christmas figures made of sugar paste and carefully selected high-quality chocolate. At the top of the telephone box sits a Christmas house designed without walls, allowing the viewer to admire every angle, of Santa’s house. The third part of the sculpture features a built-in Christmas train with a mechanical chocolate clock, adding an even greater sense of magic and wonder. This chocolate sculpture is not just about the delicious treat itself; it is a true work of art and engineering.

It showcases the fusion of art and science, requiring a deep understanding of the physical, chemical, and microbiological properties of chocolate.
