gingerbread eiffel tower stars and clouds

To commemorate a certain special occasion that took place earlier this year, I decided to build the Eiffel Tower, in all its majesty, out of gingerbread.  This isnโ€™t the first gingerbread Eiffel Tower in the world, but this may be the first one made with only 4 pieces of gingerbread.

To achieve this marvelous feat of culinary engineering, I built a baking ramp with the same slope as the profile of the tower, so each face of the tower came out curved.  As a result, each side fit together perfectly โ€“ er, close enough for gingerbread.
