More Eatable Edifices!

Who knew cakes in the shape of buildings were so popular! I receive many more tips about architecture cakes to share with everyone. Scott D. sent me a few more photos including one of former Governor Alfred E. Smith celebrating his 69th birthday with a cake topped with the Empire State Building. Many years later, current New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others slice into a cake in the shape of New York's City Hall at a celebration for the 200th anniversary of the construction of the building (1803 to 1812). Also, a 1926 Photograph shows an Eiffel Tower made by the S.S. Berengaria's pastry Chef Luigi Camano. Just the other day, I saw an ad for the Washington Wedding Show and the main image in the ad was of a wedding cake topped by the U.S. Capital dome. As a twist, I also found a photo of a building in the shape of a cake. Back in 1984, a 40-foot-high cake was constructed to celebrate 95 years of metropolitan government in the capital stands at South Bank, London. It housed an audio-visual display and historical information. I also got a tip from Espy about the cable TV show “Ace of Cakes” which created a Macy’s building cake. This show has not aired, but when it does, I’ll give you an update. Do you know of other building-shaped cakes?
