Cadbury World chocolatiers create aeroplane for Birmingham Airport

Model celebrates two Birmingham icons.

There’s nothing ‘plane’ about Cadbury World’s latest creation, as the talented chocolatiers have reached new heights with a chocolate aeroplane crafted especially for Birmingham Airport.

Weighing over 70kg, the equivalent of 1,555 standard Cadbury Dairy Milk bars, the impressive creation comes complete with white chocolate propellers and the iconic Cadbury logo, as well as smaller intricate details. Finished with a bronze lustre to give a metal-like shine, as well as a silver lustre for a window effect, the plane took the chocolatiers just two days to create, and is now on display in the departures lounge at Birmingham Airport.

The unique plane has been crafted to celebrate a partnership between Cadbury and the airport which also includes the creation of a giant timeline wall detailing major milestones in Cadbury’s 190 year history.

Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “Our chocolatiers are known for their impressive creations, and we’re delighted to add this chocolate aeroplane to the list! We love collaborating with other local businesses to celebrate the city, and hope that visitors will enjoy seeing the creation as they jet off on holiday.”

Richard Gill, Birmingham Airport’s Head of Commercial, added, “Having such a globally recognised brand at Birmingham Airport, through both its range of products within our commercial space and now this wonderful chocolate plane creation, is fantastic. Not only is this a fun spectacle for those jetting off from Birmingham Airport this summer, it also reinforces our relationship with Cadbury; a fellow local Midlands brand.”

If you’ve ever wondered about the work that goes into creating one of these show-stopping chocolate sculptures, you can see the whole process from start to finish in an exciting time-lapse video, which will be on show with the plane at Birmingham Airport.

The chocolatiers are set to be back in action soon to work on another exciting creation to celebrate Cadbury World’s 25th anniversary, to be unveiled later this year.
