Chocolate Train Miniature

Updated on January 23, 2013

I had written several hubs related with chocolate. Such as: "Chocolate, the Sweetest Thing Ever!", "The Largest Chocolate Bar in the World (Completed With Video)", and "Inspired by Chocolate". I think most of us love chocolate. We can be found it for different types of food or beverages. Even, we can eat this immediately was very tasty. Like chocolate candy or chocolate bar. Chocolate has a lot of fans from around the world. Chocolate is also often used as a gift on special moment, like Valentine Days. Because of chocolate is always symbolized as romantic feelings. Even since the time of Aztec and Mayan in Mexico, they have believed that chocolate is a food of the gods in heaven. Cocoa beans contain an alkanoid which causes a bitter taste. It also contains 9% protein, 14% carbohydrate and 31% fat. Cocoa bean also contains phenylalanine, tyrosine, tryptophan amino acid in large quantities. No wonder that chocolate is also useful for our health, like: High antioxidant (three times more than green tea), preventing and fight cancer, lowering blood pressure, preventing heart disease, preventing high blood pressure and stroke, increasing libido, and eliminate stress. We can do anything with chocolate. We can turn this material into beautiful creation. Curious…..? Please continue to read……….

From this hub I’ll share how we can make something beautiful from chocolate. With a little touch of art, we can change it into a unique and interesting decoration. The chocolate lovers may have to restrain their selves not to bite if they see a train replica made of the best Belgian chocolate. Who is the man behind this creation? Andrew Farrugia made replica trains along the 34 meters to the Brussels Chocolate Week arena. Andrew Farrugia itself is a master chocolatier from Malta. It’s the world's longest chocolate structure. Farrugia needed about 1,285 kg or 2,755 pounds of Belgian chocolate (equivalent with 6.5 million calories) and sponsored by the Belgian chocolate brand, namely Belcolade. Farrugia's creation stretched about 111.5 feet or 34 meters long and he took about 784 hours to complete a train replica. This amazing creation marked the opening of Brussels Chocolate Week.

A little about Belgian Chocolate

Belgium is a country for its delicious chocolate. This country has a long tradition in chocolate mastery. Most of the recipes are strongly influenced by its colonial past. We can find the unique combination of the finest ingredients with the exclusive production methods and good quality control. No wonder, it makes the Belgian chocolate as one of favorite chocolate in worldwide. Most of people strongly believe that Belgian chocolate as superior product, because of its well balanced taste and fine structure. I know that Belgian chocolate may be expensive. But the Belgian chocolate is a product which has reputation for quality. So, it’s suitable as a gift or special indulgence. This chocolate has been popular since the 18th century, under the rule of Leopold II. But, Jean Neuhaus introduce a new process and increased its popularity ten-fold. It happened in 1912. Neuhaus called this "Couverteur" as a special version and “pralines” as a cold shell. Each town in Belgium has their own unique recipes, including some world famous praline varieties which is certainly delicious.

Back to topic.....Trusted information said that Farrugia created the masterpiece in his home country of Malta. He transported this replica into different parts. He put all the parts of the train into 25 wooden boxes. I heard that some parts of the train were damaged during the trip and some of the train's walls also collapsed. Finally, the train is completely ready to be shown after working day and night to repair the whole body of this train.

From outer appearance, it looks the details of steam-powered locomotive. We can see the carving detail looks obviously in the locomotive body. It said, “Belcolade Express”. Where did he get such an idea to make a beautiful train replica? Farrugia got the idea when visiting Belgian Chocolate Festival in Brugge, last year. Actually the chocolate train is made of two parts. From the pictures we can see the first part, like: seven wagons. They are modeled after modern Belgian trains. And the rest of the train is modeled after the old train wagons. It’s remind the Belgium's older train wagons, including a bar and restaurant. Wow…..amazing and beautiful. I think only creative person with high imagination can represent the idea into the real creation with small scales. The chocolate train looks very detail, from the design of the locomotive to the wagons. Even the railroad tracks and the rock were made of chocolate.

Farrugia's creation listed in Guinness World Records as the longest train in the world made by chocolate. The judges from the Guinness Book of Records were busy measuring the replica where it displayed at the north train station in Brussels, Belgium. They confirming no other materials but chocolate were used. The visitors were crowding also seem very enthusiastic to watch this replica from close range. But, it’s still not the largest chocolate sculpture ever created. The previous record is the tallest chocolate structure (chocolate Christmas tree with 10 metre tall was created by Patrick Roger, in 2010) and the tallest chocolate Easter egg (with 10.39 metres in circumference and then about 19.6 metres at its widest point was created by Italian firm Tosca, in 2011). The tallest chocolate Easter egg has weight about 7,200kg.Thanks for reading and please enjoy the video below.

      Hi prasetio! It's a little early in the morning for all that chocolate! What a beautiful, crazy creation. Oddly enough, I recently had a dream in which I met up with my dead parents. I was so happy to see them! But they said they didn't have a lot of time to talk, they had work to do. They were now chocolate artists. I was so shocked thinking, is that what they do in heaven?

      Happy New Year Prasetio!

      It is amazing the things that artist us to create with, chocolate, cheese, ice etc. I like some chocolate but am not really a chocolate lover. My mother-in-law used to work in a chocolate factory. One of her jobs was to put the little shapes on top of chocolates. These shapes were a code to identify one candy from another in a box of chocolates. That is something that might interest you in case you do not already know about the identifying codes.

      I did a "double take" on this, cause I just couldn't believe this creation was made of chocolate. It is just incredible.

      I'm sharing this on my FaceBook page, plus with followers. I voted this UP,etc.

      Dear friend, Sunnie. Thank you very much for coming. I think we have the same passion with chocolate. I have to admit that Andrew Farrugia is a very creative person and also give attention to detail in his work. That makes his creation as a masterpiece.

      Wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
