Very Nice build Rui!! Wished I'd been there for the pastry, but Peter F. sent photos. @ Mike Mc Hope that box is in the frig, the ice might melt!

Rui, I have to repeat what everybody else is saying with great work! I love the way the ice is done and the weathering is perfect! I think this is my favorite of your builds so far...
