  • Welcome to How To Cook That, I'm Ann Reardon and today we are making a chocolate Eiffel

  • Tower.

  • I have never been to the Eiffel Tower myself, my husband has, but I haven't been there yet

  • but there have been loads and loads of requests, people asking could I do something Eiffel

  • Tower themed so here it is.

  • To make it what you need to do is print out the template and I'll put that on the howtocookthat.net

  • website and there is a link to that below or on the little cards if you click on the

  • 'I' in the top corner you'll be able to get to the link that way.

  • Take the bottom layer template and place it under some non-stick baking paper.

  • Put a Curly Wurly across the top and trim it to the size shown on the angle there.

  • Then do the same on each side.

  • If you don't have these chocolate bars where you live then I'll put a link to where you

  • can buy them online in the blog post.

  • They are in something like 14 countries but they're not everywhere.

  • Flip that over and using some melted compound chocolate or tempered real chocolate and pipe

  • that over the joins and then over the whole back of it to make it stronger.

  • This is the bottom layer and it is on a weird angle so we need to reinforce it.

  • Now using a piping bag follow the line of the curve around, just following it and piping

  • along the line, and then pipe a second line just a little bit in from the first one and

  • then join that to the chocolate bars by looping up and down up and down all the way around

  • that archway.

  • And you will need to make four of these base pieces.

  • Take a block of chocolate and cut a square in the size shown on the template.

  • This will form the platform at the first level.

  • Now I know this platform in reality, in real life, has a hole in it but we are making it

  • out of chocolate not steel and I want to make sure it is sturdy.

  • If your cut is not smooth just take a potato peeler and run it along the edge a few times

  • to smooth it off.

  • Lay your pieces out flat and then bring them up so that the corners match on their angles

  • so they all come together and use glasses or cups to secure them so that they sit at

  • the right angle in place.

  • It's imporant that you do them all at once like this, not one at a time, because if you

  • 'glue' it together on the wrong angle the next one is not going to fit.

  • Once you have got them how you want them to be use the melted chocolate to glue the pieces

  • together, just along the base and up the corner of each join there.

  • Once that's set we are then going to add another chocolate bar along each leg because the base

  • had to hold the whole structure up and Curly Wurlys are a bit bendy.

  • So again use just use chocolate to glue it into place, you can use any chocolate bar

  • here, just use one that is quite firm and add lots of chocolate around the base, adding

  • one into each corner.

  • Then we want to cover each of those with more Curly Wurlys so that when we look through

  • we don't see the round chocolate bars.

  • Take the template for the middle layer and cut the Curly Wurlys to size with one across

  • the top and two going down each side just like we did for the first layer.

  • Then use chocolate to glue them together, making sure it stays in the shape shown on

  • the template.

  • For the top part line a curly wurly up with the edge and cut it down the centre line.

  • Repeat that with another one on the other side.

  • Join those together but that won't be tall enough so we are going to need to add another

  • one on top.

  • Just line up one side of the line and then trim it down to make the angle of the spike.

  • You'll need to make four of those.

  • Join each one together with chocolate and add more chocolate on the back for strength.

  • Stand two of them up and pipe chocolate down the join.

  • Add more chocolate and add the third one there and then with the fourth one put chocolate

  • down both sides and then just lift it up and join that on.

  • And to keep the chocolate in the piping bag from setting while I'm working I place it

  • on a heat pack like this instead of the cold counter (I've had lots of questions about

  • that).

  • Now for the antenna on very top.

  • Lay the tower down and pipe some chocolate to make a spike.

  • While that is setting cut four little bits of Curly Wurly and join them to make a square.

  • Add the spike to the top and then add the little square just underneath it for the top

  • platform.

  • For the middle platform place the sides on top of the chocolate, on the base we put it

  • just off, but for this one we want to put it on top.

  • And use the glasses again to make them balance.

  • Then add a generous amount of chocolate around the base and up each of the side joins.

  • And now it's time to put it all together.

  • For extra strength attach the base to the board using melted chocolate.

  • And this will help those legs from splaying outwards.

  • Fill any gaps under the legs with more chocolate.

  • And once that is set trim it off with a knife to neaten it.

  • Pipe some chocolate onto the feet of the middle section and flip that over and place it on

  • top of the base.

  • Cut some Curly Wurlys to the width of the base and add them around the edge of the bottom

  • platform.

  • Then add the top tower into place using more chocolate of course.

  • Place some grey fondant on the base of the board under the middle of the tower for concrete

  • or you could use grey coloured candy melts here, whatever you like.

  • And then just trim it off to neaten it.

  • In a bowl mix some coconut and green food colouring, if you are using gel colours you'll

  • need to add about a tablespoon of water to it too or it won't mix in.

  • Spread some ganache across the edges and then add the coconut grass over the top.

  • Use the back of a spoon to spread it out evenly.

  • And there's you have a yummy Eiffel Tower.

  • You could use it just like that as the centrepiece at a party or you could put it on top of a

  • cake if you were doing a huge cake.
