Like everyone we went a bit nuts for the 3D chocolate printer last year. But Cocoagraphs is a bit more accessible for the average creative. According to the makers, Cocoagraphs are "artisan chocolate bars printed with edible Polaroid-style photographs." In other words, it's kind of like Instagram, except you'll be able to pin the blame on a fondness for confectionary when someone calls you a hipster.
Cocoagraphs are available in three flavours – you can have your prints served on a slab of milk, dark, or white chocolate – and one ecologically-friendly variety for those who are adamantly against conventional farming. It's the brainchild of Rae Vittorelli, a graduate of New York's School of Visual Arts, and despite being based in the US, Cocograph do ship worldwide.
After acquiring training in photography, printmaking and a BFA in 3D Fine Arts, Rae went on to open Philly Cake Art. I'm not sure how it all went down but somewhere along this time frame, she eventually decided to marry vintage photography with culinary delights.
I haven't been able to get my hands on a Cocoagraph just yet so I can't tell you how delicious your shots could be, but judging from the images on the website, the quality of the prints will actually be quite stellar.
