Sugar and Plumm
A New York bakery has created this $1000 specialty Easter egg.
If you want to be the first one to buy a $1,000 chocolate Easter egg from a New York City chocolatier, there’s still time—as of this writing, Sugar and Plumm had not yet sold one of its Giant Egg Showpieces, which went on display in the store on Friday.
Even though it stands at nearly 3 feet tall and weighs 22 pounds, the egg is still very fragile, according to a company spokesperson, so it’s available for pick-up only, at either the store's Upper West Side location or its branch in Paramus, NJ.
It takes 30 hours to create the giant egg out of dark, white and milk chocolates, and the whole thing is edible.
“I wanted to show the world the work of art and creativity that [we] could come up with,” says company founder Lamia Jacobs. “This egg is one of our masterpieces.”
The whimsical-feeling Sugar and Plumm, a bistro, bakery and chocolatier, specializes in over-the-top creations, such as its “Earthquake in a Fishbowl” dessert ($17), which is a bowl full of three slices of cake, a slice of pie, three types of ice cream, oh, and butterscotch pudding.
If all that sugar goes to your head and you find yourself contemplating shelling out for the $1,000 egg, you may want to turn your attention to the smaller Chicks-n-Egg, available for a mere $95.
