With just 46 days left until Valentine's Day, you've still got time to get a 3D-printer-generated mask of your face made out of chocolate.

Don't laugh. The 3D printer tsumami promises to wash over all of us in 2014, as this red-hot technology brings to life all sorts of objects, from back-scratchers to doorknobs to fancy jewelry.

Now comes word from The Telegraph that a British company has created a chocolate sculpture of the human face using this cutting-edge printing technology:

The company, Choc Edge, which was spun out from the University of Exeter in 2012, charges between £50 and £80 to print a chocolate face. Customers can send an image of themselves through the company's website, and the sculpture is created by building up layers of dark, milk or white chocolate.

The report says Hao's engineer-magicians were the first ones to come up with a way to apply 3D-printing  prowess to chocolate. Go figure, right?

Three-dimensional chocolate products are created by melting chocolate, tempering it and depositing it onto a substrate in two-dimensional layers as little as 0.05 mm thick. The company claims this is better than traditional methods, because it allows the creation of complex and artistic designs without the need for expensive molding tools.
