The five finalists were competing for a spot at the world finals of the World Chocolate Masters in Paris next year, and this was the first time that the event was held as a live public event.
The finalists began constructing their masterpieces at 5.30am on Sunday morning, as the process of creating each individual piece to perfection was time consuming to say the least.
The event attracted a large number of exhibition visitors, particularly when the chocolate masterpieces were completed and finalists were required to move them in order to test their durability.
Each finalist transported their chocolate creation from the competition arena over to a display stand, and while in some cases small, intricate pieces such as a chilli broke off, each structure remained intact.
Upon analysing each chocolate creation according to a strict set of criterion, the judges awarded Deniz Karaca from Epicure in Melbourne with the title of Australian winner of the World Chocolate Masters.
