Chocolate face sculptures created using 3D printing

Chocolate fans in Japan have been creating Valentine's Day gifts with a difference.

Their faces are scanned and then turned into a chocolate mould, using 3D printing technology.

Participants at the event in Tokyo said they were surprised at how lifelike the miniature sculptures turned out to be.
