Under the guidance of Master pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek, the pastry team at the Grand hand-paints the enormous eggs (16 to 20 inches tall) with tinted cocoa butter to amazing themes ‚Ä" the ‚ÄúFrozen‚ÄĚ egg is sure to be a big hit this year. Look for eggs telling the stories of ‚ÄúThe Little Mermaid,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúCinderella,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúPocahontas,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúLady and the Tramp,‚ÄĚ all created with modeling chocolate, fondant, sculpted sugar and royal icing.
There are 18 eggs in all this year, and each takes 18 to 20 hours to create, says Chef Erich. And, best of all, they're completely edible.
Here's a look at last year's Grand Floridan Easter Egg Display:
