The Hamburger Shoe

The Hamburger ShoePeople always get excited about 3D printed food in spite of the fact there are precious few ways to do so. While we await the development of a consumer food printer, others continue to experiment. Shapeways reports on a great experiment in which their member Tristan Bethe 3D scanned his shoe, 3D printed a slightly smaller model of it, formed food-safe silicon around it to form a food mold. 
He then simply poured in semi-fluid bread dough and baked himself a shoe. Adding a sole-shaped meat patty completed the “shoe burger”.
The Hamburger ShoeNot exactly 3D printed food, but that’s about as close as you can easily get these days. However, a commenter pointed out that the 3D printing step was overkill, as you could simply sacrifice a shoe by hardening it and using the shoe itself to form the silicon mold. 
We really need an inexpensive food printer.
