Here's a creation that looks Truly Scrumptious – a scene from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang made purely with chocolate.

The director behind the musical-inspired masterpiece is Ashley McCarthy, owner of Ye Old Sun Inn at Colton in North Yorkshire.

Each year he puts his skills to the test to make a slice of chocolate heaven for children at nearby Martin House Hospice.

This year he used 25kg of Belgian chocolate, icing and glucose to make the design that features the famous flying car, Grandad in his shed, the child catcher's cage and the toy shop.

 

 

It took more than 60 hours to make and will be on display at the pub before being taken to the hospice for the children to demolish. This year Ashley has buried an extra 4kg of wrapped chocolates underneath the town scene that they can also tuck into.

Alison Wragg, community fund raiser (North and East Yorkshire) for Martin House, said: "It's hard to put into words the joy that Ashley's chocolate delights bring to our children and young people. This year's piece will be no exception; it's truly exquisite!"

Customers in the pub are being asked to make a donation to the hospice. There is also a Just Giving page set up for the cause.
