This Giant Ferrero Rocher Cake Is A Golden Dome Of Decadence

Growing up, a Ferrero Rocher piece was the pinnacle of decadent confection. Wrapped in bright gold foil, the balls of chocolate and hazelnut boasted a rich flavor and bold textures created from the marriage of the two balanced ingredients.

Now imagine that feeling, magnified one hundred fold.

Gelato Messina, a gelato shop in Australia, created a giant Ferrero Rocher ball that pales all other candies before it.

The exquisite details to create this dessert miracle start with tempered chocolates that are liquefied and poured into a dome mold, which is then tipped upside down. The mold is next filled with gianduja gelato, white chocolate, and hazelnut spread, all of which are then frozen. What follows is the hazelnut praline mousse and chocolate covered Rice Krispies being added to the gelato dome once it's stiff.

A second, smaller hazelnut and cream gelato dome is crafted, frozen, and glazed with chocolate rocker glaze while the bottom dome is sprayed with gold luster. Finally, the Rocher glazed dome is placed on top of the gold glazed one, sealed and ready to be split in half.

An intricate process, yes, but the results speak for themselves.
