You have to look closely and only then you realize that it is actually flowing.
I am talking about the largest chocolate fountain in the world.
You will find this at Jean-Philippe Patisserie which is situated inside the Bellagio hotel.
It stands 26 feet tall from ceiling to the tank below and circulates 4409 lbs of melted chocolate at the rate of 120 quarts per minute.
You can see the Guinness book certificate on the right.
The three colours you see are dark, milk and white chocolate which is pumped by six pumps. These pumps take the chocolate back up through 2 inch diameter SS pipes. To maintain the viscosity, temperature is controlled at 49 deg Celsius (120 F). To maintain the temperature these pipes are sheathed in another 3 inch pipe through which hot oil passes. All these are hidden within the walls of the shop.
25 suspended glass vessels make it look more exquisite. Engineering planning and design took two years.
There are other pastries on display and sale. Clicked a few of them :
The Croissant too was looking yummy.
And this dress is made completely of chocolate:
You are surrounded with chocolate, and that makes you wonder, where to start.
