In the video, the talented chef can be seen making the masterpiece. He goes into the details of the machine and makes even the tiniest parts. Guichon even makes a lense out of liquid gelatine.
“Chocolate Telescope! Perfect snack to spy on your neighbor!” he wrote in his witty caption.
To give the telescope a lively look, he spray-paints the chocolate sculpture golden. He also adds a logo and makes a working system where the telescope can be moved up and down.
