The only thing crazier than building the Eiffel Tower?

Building it out of sugar.


Okay, so my royal icing version was only eight inches tall. But still. . .  (By the way, click over here for the tower tutorial)

This cake was chocolate on the inside. I never seem to get tired of the same old awesome, moist, dark chocolate fudge cake. Amazingly enough. The pink ruffle idea was pretty much stolen directly from a cake I fell in love with on My Sweet & Saucy blog.


The whole effect is rather French, oui?
