The sculpture had to be strong enough to withstand being transported 1000 miles to Cannes, France and stay fresh for 4 weeks.

We made a 120cm high Eiffel tower wooden structural inner to attach the shortbread fingers to, as using shortbread alone with icing or chocolate to join them together would have been too fragile to withstand the long journey.

We calculated the scale of the model required to fit the size of the shortbread fingers, and then used approximately 465 shortbread fingers to build and create the detail of the Eiffel tower.
