I wish they could 3D print in chocolate.

For 3D printed confections, my hex crystal or a Rainbow nautilus is probably about the limit I would be willing to consume alone in one setting. The Starminx Family would make for an awesome cake at my next birthday.

What we need is a way to build edible puzzles from meat(preferably beef or chicken) and veggies(preferably garden fresh salad stuff). Imagine a tiled megaminx with a hamburger base and tiles of pickle, tomato, onion, bacon, cheese, and romaine with mustard as the glue holding the tiles in place.

This topic is making me want to eat breakfast earlier than originally planned.

I would think eggs would work as a good medium. Just scramble them up, then inject them into a mold and bake the mold until they are set. I guess it's not 3D printed, but maybe with a special nozzle, that would work instead of a mold.

On the topic of food, maybe 3d print in (food A) for the innermost shell layer and core, (food B) for the second shell etc. Makes for a good layer food thing!

Raw egg white in a glue gun (or 3Doodler) should work reasonably well, as the heated nozzle would cook it. :D

The problem is it would clog in the nozzle unless the timing was perfect such that it solidifies as it's just come out from the nozzle.
