I'll Take One Of Those iPads - Wrapped In Chocolate Please!

A chocolate covered iPad.  If that's not the best customized birthday gift an Apple nerd can get, I don't know what is.  That's what Kay Chung received from her husband the other day for her birthday.  Honest.

Stefan Magdalinski, a website builder and CEO of Mocality, from South Africa, wanted to do something special for his wife's birthday. She was expecting an iPad, and on the one hand, he didn't want to disappoint her, but on the other hand, he wanted to surprise her.

So, Magdalinski called up one of the best chocolatiers in London, Paul A Young Fine Chocolates, and asked them to "freeze an iPad in chocolate carbonite" and ship it to his wife. (iPads are not even sold in South Africa yet!)

Here are some of the photos of his wife and her gift, which the couple kindly shared....

At this point, Chung says to her husband:  “I like chocolate, but you gave me 2 kg of it for my birthday, are you a bit nuts?

But he responds by telling her to pull on the ribbon embedded in the chocolate.

She's pretty much on to it by now!

Lucky, Chung got exactly what she wanted for her birthday.  But poor husband, Magdalinski; how is he going to come close to matching this gift next year.  Maybe a caramel encrusted 4G iPhone?

Maybe Magdalinski will start a trend in gift giving.  Let's see... chocolate-covered designer sunglasses, chocolate-covered kitten, chocolate-covered wine rack... Just trying to give my husband some ideas...
