Nice!

How about a cooled bed? Use a solid state cooler. Or a water cooled bed with copper tube soldered to the back of the bed. Water pumped through a container full of ice.

That certainly looks nice, but chocolate printing still has a long way to go before we can print the Stanford bunny in its rightful chocolate.

On cooled beds: if you get below the dew-point, it will start to attract water droplets. Water and chocolate should not be mixed or you get an awful mess. A better solution would be to cool with lots of cooled air and/or to precisely cool the tip of the nozzle so that the chocolate is slightly solidified the moment it gets deposited. As it is now, the material retains too much heat (transports that heat too slow) and does not solidify enough to allow multi layered prints.
