Who says all the holiday glitz is reserved for Christmas?
French chocolatier Thierry Atlan is taking Easter up a notch this year at Sugar and Plumm, a bistro and sweet shop on the Upper West Side, with a $5,000 chocolate egg.
The 40-pound, handmade egg took two weeks to construct from white, dark and milk chocolate, and is adorned with three-dimensional rabbits and painted clocks and gears with gold details.
The egg is on display for visitors for now, but it is also up for sale-- and we've been assured it's edible.
If you don't clean out your wallet on Atlan's over-the-top creation, Sugar and Plumm, located at 377 Amsterdam Ave., is also offering some more subdued spring sweets, from white chocolate eggs customized with whimsical faces ($15), to blue-eyed bunnies ($19.50) and hens with candy-coated eggs ($9.50).
