Expert Cadbury chocolatiers pay tribute to Jude Bellingham with stunning Euro 2024 creation

Redditch Editorial 14th Jun, 2024   0

THE EXPERT chocolatiers at Cadbury have been busy creating this Euro 2024 masterpiece ahead of the tournament kicking off tonight.

And the team at the Bournville base have used their pure Cadbury’s chococolate creation to honour home-grown superstar Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham is from Stourbridge and began his career at Birmingham City before playing for Borussia Dortmund in Germany and Real Madrid where he successfully lifted the Champions League trophy a fortnight ago.

The ingenious creation – depicting Bellingham’s shirt – is 80cm tall and weighs 26kg – the equivalent of 578 standard Cadbury Dairy Milk bars.

The shirt and its surroundings was made by chocolatiers Dawn Jenks, Claire Fielding and Andrew Ward, who worked with white chocolate and food colouring powder to delicately handcraft every edible element, including a full size chocolate football.

It took three days to make.

The chocolate masterpiece will make its appearance in the Chocolate Making zone at Cadbury World, Bournville, Birmingham, this weekend, in line with the start of the football tournament.

Speaking about the Jude Bellingham chocolate creation, Tim Waters, Regional Director at Merlin Entertainments said: “This summer is huge for the country’s football fans, and it all kicks off this weekend.

“As a star of Birmingham, we wanted to celebrate the incredible success of Jude Bellingham and wish him luck out on the field.

“Our chocolatiers here at Cadbury World are so talented and we’re always blown away by their immaculately crafted creations. We’re hoping that this chocolatey charm from Bellingham’s home city, helps towards the England team’s success and we’re looking forward to hopefully seeing them ‘bring it home’ for the nation.”

The new chocolate creation will proudly stand on display amongst the newly developed zones at the attraction this summer.
