The layers are not flat. Many different brands and colors of chocolate advertising fills the center of the chocolate pot. 
The next images show the phases of the chocolate moon. The handles shape and details are worth examining closely.

Two chocolate cups constructed using post-consumer recycled tin cans from chocolate products. Cups filled with luscious “hot chocolate” that is actually polyester resin. The foamy chocolate is permanently scrumptious. 

These cups represent a tour-de-force of design and skill working with tin cans. They are so beautiful, I often take them out for display.
