Making a mold out of foods?

Could I make a mold using a food? I'm interseted in making a gummy bear and/or chocolate ship mold and was wondering if I could use the food to create the mold?

Haha, I love this question! I've never done it, but there's a possibility that you could use gelatin to make a mold for the gummy bears, assuming that gummy bear mix doesn't require being heated before pouring into the mold.

I'm afraid I can't think of anything that would withstand the heat of tempered chocolate. :(

I'll keep my thinking cap on and let you know if I come up with any more ideas.

Gummy bears actually are molded in starch. Just search the internet.

I was actually hoping to use food to make the mold, but use the mold for non food things. Though I do have a silicon gummy bear mold already, I just wanted to try to make a sturdier mold :)
