People have been known to sculpt just about anything out of strange materials, so it shouldn't be surprising that Hakan Martensson's choice is medium chocolate. The only thing surprising about his deliciously detailed art is that he somehow manages to constrain himself from devouring every last piece of chocolate in sight.

Born and raised in Sweden, Hakan Martensson displayed an affinity for all things food related from an early age. During his cooking studies, Hakan Martensson found himself drawn to the art of chocolate making, which then turned into an art of sculpting. Since then, Hakan Martensson's scrumptious sculptures have been displayed around the world. He has even won a silver medal during the 2006 World Cup and a bronze medal at the 2008 Culinary Olympics.
