Chocolate Architecture

If you celebrate Easter, budding architecture fans would be delighted to find not only chocolate bunnies in their Easter basket, but a chocolate building or statue as well. Children and those who are a child-at-heart, can appreciate eatable architecture. Check out some examples below of tasty towering treats.

Chocolate Statue of Liberty - Confectioners put final touches on the 13-foot tall Chocolate Statue of Liberty created using 2.5 tons of chocolate in Paris in 1986. The chocolate lady liberty is made from a mold by French artist Auguste Bartholdi, who designed the real Statue of Liberty.

Chocolate Castle - Visitors look at a 6-foot-long, 2-foot-tall chocolate replica of the Smithsonian Castle at the Ripley Center in Washington, D.C. The confectionary creation was produced in 1996 when The Smithsonian Institution was celebrating its 150th birthday.
Chocolate Notre Dame - Ron Rivers, a visitor at the New York Chocolate Show, inspects a 12-foot-high chocolate replica of Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral in 2000. The sculpture was made by the Choc Expo team of architects, model makers and pastry chefs.

Chocolate Pagoda - Visitors look at a chocolate pagoda during the Chocolate Show which gathers chocolate makers from all over the world in Paris, 2004.

Chocolate White House - White House pastry chef Bill Yosses shows First Lady Laura Bush a white chocolate White House in the State Dinning Room of the White House in Washington in 2007.
