As part of a year long celebration of the 250th birthday of St. Louis, Cakeway to the West will highlight places of note throughout the St. Louis region, providing residents and visitors with an interactive almanac of locations that tell the story of St. Louis' past, present and future. 250 regional locations will have a 4 foot high, two tiered cake painted by local artists and will mark a location of note in our region.
The group wants St Louisans to go on a regional scavenger hunt to see if they can find and look at all of them.
Entities in the various locations could choose to have the organization design and paint their cakes or they could choose their own theme and artist. Concordia Seminary was invited to be a part of the Cakeway to the West and chose to have local artist Janice Mudd do a uniquely Seminary theme. It turned filled with gorgeous detail.
Here are Dale and Janice lifting the curtain from the cake in front of many students and some of their families.
Let's have a look.
And Jake is here for the weekend.
Collinsville also has a Gate to the West cake and it looks as though they had STL250 paint theirs. And, it was put in place under the Catsup Bottle.
I kind of wish this cake had been put where there is more foot traffic so people could get a good look at it by walking around it.
