There is a trick I have heard about before but never tried. The basic idea is to put a mars bar in a microwave oven for a short amount of time. First you remove the turntable, so the chocolate bar stays stationary. Then you turn the microwave on just long enough for the chocolate to start to melt. It should melt at the nodes of the standing field. You simply measure the distance between the nodes, and multiply by the frequency of the microwave oven to obtain the speed of light. There is a YouTube demonstration (by a kid)here.
