Prince portrait made of Toblerone

An artist has created a portrait of the Duke of Cambridge and his son Prince George out of Toblerone chocolate bars to mark his first Father's Day.

Michelle Wibowo made the portrait using 1,500 bars of the confectionery in the three colours offered by the white, dark and milk chocolate varieties.

It took more than 16,000 individual pieces to create the picture, which measures 12 feet by eight feet and weighs more than 150 kilos.

Ms Wibowo, a food artist who can also sculpt cakes and sugar, said the "painful" part was cutting the individual bits of chocolate from the triangular Toblerone bars.

She trained as an architect in her native Indonesia before studying at the National Baking School in London.
