A UK food artist has launched a heart stopping chocolate selection for Valentine’s Day including a life like human heart and set of fingers.

Not for the faint-hearted, the human heart and set of fingers may look like something from a horror film, but in actual fact are handmade by classically trained artist Sarah Hardy at The Edible Museum.

The cannibalistic edible art by Hardy has already received praise from Mick Jagger, and the heart has even won approval from medical doctors according to The Edible Museum.

Sarah Hardy's extraordinary talent has inspired crowd-funders to help her hit her target and take her business from the kitchen table to a specialised studio which has the perfectly maintained temperature to sculpt the chocolate.

Said Hardy, "We successfully raised £10,630 of the £10,000 target with 116 supporters in 35 days! Thank you so much to all our funders. We have built a studio for The Edible Museum's sweet alchemy and supporters can come along to the website and see what we are up to."

Sarah hand-makes and paints all her chocolates from her rural Essex studio, to the dulcet tones of birdsong - who said romance was dead?
