As one of my projects for my voice class, my partner and I crafted a larynx made 97.5345% out of candy. That's a rough estimation. lol Candy manipulated: taffy, Twizzlers Pull n Peel, gummi worms, Peachie-Os, yellow and clear gummy bears, AirHeads, and candy corn. We had to use some little wires to support the shape of the structure. Tape and flour was also employed to complete our masterpiece, along with good ol' engenuity and creativity. It took so long to finish this because we had to cool the pieces for a while to get them to cooperate. In the end it was worth it because we had the sweetest larynx in class.   Cheesy  Here's the pic (anterior view):



And here's a diagram of what it is supposed to look like:


Like looking into a mirror, huh? lol I admit, it's a little rough, but we got an A!

I love it, and not just because those are my kind of candies.

..."sweetest larynx in the class"... that's gold.

Behold the power of science!

Did you melt and reform stuff? As far as I can tell, only the peachy rings (yum!) are recognizable.

... and did you eat it? xD

Haha awesome!  How funny, I've been looking for a way to make a model of a larynx myself as a present to my voice teacher to aid him in teaching.  Candy won't work, but you certainly give me hope that it is possible. 

Cheers!

Yep. We melted some clear and yellow gummy bears in the microwave for a fear seconds. That yellow dye really dominated the clear. I underestimated how hot molten gummy was, and as a result, I kinda scorched my finger. Consider that a warning, although you guys are probably a lot more careful than I am when it comes to touching hot objects. lol The pink part was a blend of peppermint taffy. Other parts are pretty much in their original state (umm, I think so.) And it ended up that we coated the model with hairspray, so it was no longer edible.

That is so awesome!  My friend and I once made a model of DNA out of candy, pipecleaners, and toothpicks for Bio class.  This looks so much more impressive, though.

I'm fascinated by the melting of gummy bears!  That's unbelievably creative!  *10 points for WizardGlick*
