London is hoping to crack the Guinness World Record for the world’s most expensive non-jewelled chocolate egg sold at auction as part of World Record London.

This 50-kilo egg was designed by William Curley for The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt, and will be auctioned this evening to raise money for Action for Children and Elephant Family.

Four artisan chocolatiers took three days to produce the luxurious egg at William Curley’s Twickenham production kitchen.

Trimmed with gold leaf, the masterpiece is filled with William Curley chocolates including muscovado caramel, Japanese black vinegar, and rosemary and olive oil.

We hope someone’s feeling generous this Easter! Look out for an update tomorrow on the price achieved at auction.

Update on 21 March: The egg sold last night at auction for a record-breaking £7,000.

    It would take a very large chicken to lay an egg that big. Scary.
