After a sleepless night the pimp team had an early start and cut down the now hard dried two layer kinder. With some caution the airfilled confection was taken out into the garden and set down carefully. Following the explosion of the previous day the egg was approached with caution and the protruding rubber of the balloon pierced very slightly to allow a slow and steady release of the air inside. Once risk of explosion had passed and the device had been rendered harmless it was returned to the kitchen/lab and a hot blade was passed through it's two layered shell slicing the two tone construction into two perfect halves.
Now in two the obscene kinder was worked on by the team pimp technicians who, to the detriment of their manicure, peeled the last of the balloon from the inner white chocolate layer. Once the inner was picked clean hot spoons were used to partially melt and reshape the top of the construction to acheive a more authentic egg shape and neaten the cut edges. The job was done. The gargantuan snack was then posed and photographed next to it's smaller and less impressive cousin then carefully dressed and accessorised with a replica surprise toy that had been encapsulated in a butchered lemonade bottle.
The team debriefed and discussed at length the outcome of the project. There was some disappointment that the outer shell was a bit knobbly and had no shine (a web search and a phone call to our dad revealed that the melting temperature of chocolate is crucial to the appearance of the finished confection) ((we weren't to know)) and we were cross that we had ruined the lawn with spray filler foam. We were however delighted that in both taste and texture our colossal pimp was as delicious as the original and the surprise toy was as thoroughly disappointing as one might expect from a shop bought egg. During the antiques roadshow the team ate and enjoyed a full half a shell - yum.
