Renowned Pastry Chef Jean-Philippe Maury Showcases Otherworldly Skills with Debut of Giant “Space Bunnies” at Bellagio’s Jean Philippe Pâtisserie
LAS VEGAS – April 12, 2011 – World renowned pastry chef Jean-Philippe Maury has raised the bar once again with the debut of larger-than life Space Bunnies at Bellagio’s Jean Philippe Pâtisserie, on display through Easter.
Sitting in a chocolate spaceship measuring eight feet in circumference, two Space Bunnies are dressed in edible flight suits and ready to operate flight controls that will take them to a dimension of the chocolate kind. Made from the finest Swiss chocolate, the only non-edible ingredients are working blinking lights that adorn the spacecraft. The out-of-this-world creation took Jean-Philippe and his team a month to complete.
Complementing his incredible Easter display, Jean-Philippe also is unveiling more than 45 Easter creations at Jean Philippe Pâtisserie in both ARIA Resort & Casino and Bellagio, including:
· Don’t forget about the sports fans. The Chocolate Basketball Bunny and his white chocolate ball are a slam dunk for Easter baskets. A Sports Bunny is also available for loved ones who cheer for multiple teams.
· It’s not all about the Easter Bunny this year; Jean-Philippe also has created a hand-shaped Chocolate Monkey and even a Hippopotamus. These hand-molded chocolates are the perfect gift for any unique Easter basket.
