An intricate Versace-inspired chocolate sculpture with edible chocolate in 24-carat gold will be auctioned off this Easter to raise money for the local charity Baby Give Back.
Gorgeous chocolate eggs made by the in-house pastry chef at Palazzo Versace will be sold at a silent auction on April 17 with Moet Hennessy Magnum donating proceeds to charities that put children and families in distress.
Palazzo Versace Pastry Chef Grant Turner told myGC: “This is a really important donation, and at this time they are giving back to those who have lost everything in the floods from Southeast Queensland to Lismore.”

The lavish treats are currently on display in the hotel lobby, with locals encouraged to bid.
“The design is inspired by the ornate tiling on the floor of the lobby of Palazzo Versace. It looks right at home on display at Palazzo Versace” said Mr. Turner.
Gold Coast chocolate lovers can treat themselves to some special Versace Design Easter Eggs, available for sale from $45 onwards.
Mr. Turner said that around 96 kg of chocolate was used to create the fabulous collection that almost tastes great!
“In total, our Easter egg collection took 80 hours to complete and the finished product looks absolutely fabulous.
“We’ve used some of the best chocolate you can buy to make 3 or 4 different showpiece eggs and some even smaller ones.
“It’s no fun not eating chocolate, so go out there and break it, eat the hard ones and enjoy it!”
