Molly Malone to get sweet makeover

Edel O'Connell

A BRITISH artist will bring new meaning to the lyric "sweet Molly Malone" tomorrow.

Visitors to the Dundrum Town Centre are in for a serious treat when famed celebrity food artist Prudence Staite creates a five-foot replica of Dublin's famous Molly Malone monument made entirely of chocolate.

Armed with more than 1,000 pounds of Cadbury chocolate, the artist is hoping to create the famous monument on Dublin's Grafton Street in just four days.

Prudence is renowned for her sculptures which fuse food and art together to create edible creations.

Her previous works include chocolate sculptures of Elton John, Ray D'Arcy and actor Robert Pattinson.
