I'll just leave it here...

"This massive cake, over six feet high, was made by Mr. Jean Lubeck, of Marcel's, Avenue Joffre, for the July 14 celebrations. It is surmounted by a statue of Marshal Foch."

Somehow I am having hard time imagining this cake as being over 6 feet (1.80 m) high. The perspective distortion makes it look more like 6 inches high. I wish Mr. Lubeck had posed next to his confection for scale.
