IPC Building a Village

Our next IPC topic is "Building a Village" and our topic launch will involve geometric engineering; why not get a bit of practise in first with some spagetti and jelly babies!  My challenge is, how tall a tower can you build with just spagetti and jelly babies that supports a single whole jelly baby at its highest point?  I've achieved 40 cm to the jelly babies top of head. Try not to eat too many as you build. Comment your successful heights with a photo.
