Icing solar panels? Gumdrop insulation?

The Canadian website Terry* is sponsoring a very tasteful contest. Build your own environmentally responsible house – of the candy sort. To enter their contest, your gingerbread house must have no less than four “sustainable building design elements.” Would it be too gross to have your licorice electrical wires coming from a Tootsie roll sump?
