This Chocolate Baby Groot Is Almost Too Cute to Eat
Forget talking raccoons and Chris Pratt’s witty (and muscular) character….the most exciting part about the release of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is the return of the adorable baby Groot.
The U.K.-based chocolatier Laura Miller of Sugar Spice Cakes created a 3-D chocolate rendering of baby Groot in all of his wide-eyed, anthropomorphic-plant glory.
As you can see in this time lapse video, chocolate baby Groot may be even cuter than his computer- animated counterpart on the big screen. The six-and-a-half-pound sculpture took seven hours to create and is made entirely out of white and milk molding chocolate. Appropriately, the soundtrack of the two-minute video is “Hooked on a Feeling,” one of the most famous songs featured in the original Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.
This cute Groot even caught the attention of Guardians’ director, James Gunn:
Miller’s other true-to-life chocolate creations include a 3-D chocolate “Salt Bae,” a The Nightmare Before Christmas rendering, and an edible old-school Joker and Harley Quinn.
