Ingredients

  • Sugar Wafers
  • Ice cream (optional)
  • White frosting
  • Chocolate sauce (optional)

Steps

  1. Build an Eiffel Tower on your plate using sugar wafers as your building blocks and frosting as your cement. You will need to cut some cookies into smaller shapes so your tower stands.
  2. Make a French flag by drawing one on paper using markers or crayons, then cut it out, and tape or glue it to a whole or half a toothpick depending on how tall you want it to stand.Add the flag to the top of the tower
  3. Serve with a scoop of ice cream and chocolate sauce, if desired
