With Easter just around the corner, Vegas visitors won’t want to miss the jaw-dropping holiday display at the L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon restaurant inside the MGM Grand resort.

Made from more than 70 pounds of dark, milk and white chocolate, the display includes sculptures of about 150 flowers, 120 eggs and 60 hens. Completing the menagerie are bunnies, birds and butterflies, all of them literally good enough to eat.

Executive Pastry Chef Kamel Guechida and a team of four spent eight weeks designing and crafting the elaborate celebration of Easter.

“From the colorful eggs in various shapes and sizes to the sculpture detail on the wings of the butterflies, each piece was handmade with extreme detail and care,” Guechida said in a prepared statement.

The sweet holiday treat will be on display through Monday, April 1.
