I made my first eiffel tower out of chocolate
I considered making the Eiffel Tower out of fondant or gum paste but i was worried about our humidity and transporting a gum paste sculpture this fragile for 30 minutes in my car sounded like a scary thing. So I decided to make it out of chocolate.
It was a lot of fun trying to construct this tower.
I have been to Paris a few times and I remember the first time I went to Paris was when I was 12 years old.
My mom took me on an all girl trip to Paris and we arrived in the city of love and fashion at 6 am. I was so excited and when we entered the city center all I saw were a bunch of trash trucks and people pressure washing the streets. I looked at my mom and complained: "Where are all the pretty people?!"
Lol! This silly little girl expected only beautiful people roaming the streets. :)
