What's Floating Around

What’s Floating Around Cloud 9? 26 March 2018


Welcome to another week and we’d like to wish everyone a very enjoyable Easter!

Whatever your plans for the long weekend ahead, we hope its filled with happiness and chocolate and just in case you are suddenly feeling flush, win the lottery or just want to go mad with generosity, then this might be the egg for you…as New York based chocolatiere, Jacques “Mr. Chocolate” Torres, as apparently set the new world record for the Most Expensive Chocolate Egg…

His rather magnificent creation is a chocolate egg, which weights 50 kilogrammes, is entirely made from milk chocolate and is decorated with the New York City skyline. The yummy looking  egg is now exhibited in his DUMBO store in the City so if you are heading over this weekend, put it on your to do list! This chocolate expert took 10 days to create his delicious masterpiece, which is 80 cm tall and needs to be kept in a space with 20 degrees Celsius to stop it melting, so if you do get chance to see it, wrap up warm!

This giant egg is a part of Faberge Big Egg Hunt event, which takes place in the whole of New York City, where 200 different eggs are presented by a range artist and then they are all sold at a charity auction. We do like chocolate here at Cloud 9…just saying!

In other news this week please don’t forget that the deadline for the CHS Awards has been extended to this Thursday 29 March. Recognising venues in a variety of categories, the awards which are now in their fourth year have really taken off and entries have been flying in but there is still time to get your venue in front of a relevant and receptive audience. The judges are all leading agents so the decisions are not based on who has the biggest marketing budget, but instead based on personal experience and day to day business.

It takes little more than five minutes to enter and it’s free so if you have yet to submit your venue online, then now is the time.

Lastly, just a note to let everyone know that the office will be closed this Friday, Good Friday and will re-open on Tuesday 3 April.

Have a great week everyone….
