I know that Isomalt sticks were mentioned earlier, and I agree that this would be very sensitive to work with. However, there is a product that just might give you something to work with. It’s called SugarVeil. We use it to make intricate lace pieces. It dries to a flexible state, which might be interesting in your application somehow. Best of Luck.

I’m not very science savvy so I don’t really have suggestions on how to reach the solid/liquid balance that you need, but soup would obviously be something with homogenous flavors…
A miniaturized pig’s head with an apple in it’s mouth could also be delicious.

It will not give you any new ideas but just another tool to produce it with. Good luck

You could make cubes out of one material, filled with another, or dotted, or something like the “3d crystal cube” ornaments they sell.

Seems like stabilized meringue would work well in this, and you could print arbitrarily complex, extremely-thin shells.

Or, for something on the disturbing side, take 2 pictures (front and side) of each guest to a party, then print out an edible chocolate shaped like their own face for dessert. I guess that’s probably a gimmick…

Anyway, I think the real strength of the fab is to make shells (perhaps filled and multi-layered), perhaps in complicated shapes. You pretty much can’t do that any other way. Bite-sized turducken?
