Marzipan, food coloring
Marzipan as a food can sometimes be very fake, not at all appearing as something that is edible. Often it has more value as being a small colorful sculpture.
I took the qualities of marzipan and maximized them. It now has the most revolting color as possible for a food, it has a form of a very flexible object and the placement indicates that in no way this could be a very valued item of food.
