This chocolate Baby Groot sculpture is almost too cute to eat


Baby Groot has never looked this delicious.

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hitting theaters in just over a month, Laura Miller, who owns the U.K.-based Sugar Spice Cakes and who has previously created other incredible sculptures, like the Joker and Harley Quinn and the Salt Bae meme, created a life-like and incredibly detailed chocolate baby Groot.

The sculpture weighs about 3kg (6.6lbs) and is made of milk and white chocolate. Miller condenses the seven-hour project into a two-minute time-lapse video as Blue Suede’s “Hooked on a Feeling” plays in the background, the perfect soundtrack.–tND4

She later shared a sped-up version of the video with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who posted it for his followers.

While Baby Groot looks great in video form, it’ll soon be possible to have it in your own home. A 45-minute tutorial on how to make your own chocolate Baby Groot is available for preorder through Vimeo. A 24-hour rental will cost $11 or you can purchase it for $25. The tutorial will be released April 18, so you’ll have time to prep for a Guardians of the Galaxy party—or more than enough time to perfect it for Easter next year.
