Chocolate dessert blooms like a flower right before you eat it

I like food that's as close to being alive (or fresh, depending on your perspective) as possible. That's partly because it tastes better but also because it's tingly to see food move when you don't expect it too. This blooming chocolate dessert is a mover, all right. As you pour the cream onto the dish, the chocolate strip opens up like a flower.

It's like we're eating magical food meant for wizards or something. The dessert is served at the Ipsylon Restuarant at The Oitavos Hotel in Portugal

Ok, I'll be the geek. What's making the chocolate 'petals' fall out? Is it hot cream melting the chocolate hinges?
