Messi gets chocolate birthday sculpture

He turned 31 on Sunday

An eerily realistic sculpture of Argentine midfielder Lionel Messi, made entirely of chocolate, has been presented to the Argentina star for his birthday.  

He turned 31 on Sunday.

A team of five cake artists and sculptors worked for nearly a week to carve Messi in 60 kg of chocolate which will be put on display at a concert in Bronnitsy, a town located some 50 kilometres from near Moscow that is home to Argentina's base during the month-long tournament.

The custom bakery has been in operation for two decades, creating elaborate custom cakes for special occasions. Malkina said many people have ordered Messi-themed cakes before, but with a much smaller sculpture.
