This is meant to be a cake topper. It's made completely out of royal icing and a lot of patience! I did it just to see if I could...fun!
Update: Many have asked for the instructions to creating this Eiffel Tower. In an effort to respond to all of those numerous requests, I have created a file link on my website. Go to www.confectioneista.com and click the Eiffel Tower picture on the "About" page and download the instructions. Enjoy!
