Cakeway to the West

In honor of St. Louis’ 250th Birthday, 250 fiberglass cakes will be placed all over St. Louis on Feb. 14-16. Each location is a unique component that has made St. Louis’ past, present, and future. “My dad works at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel and it was one of the default locations for the cakes.

In honor of St. Louis’ 250th Birthday, 250 fiberglass cakes will be placed all over St. Louis on Feb. 14-16. Each location is a unique component that has made St. Louis’ past, present, and future.

Each cake will be the same size and have the same layout, and the design will correspond to the location they are placed in.

“My dad works at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel and it was one of the default locations for the cakes. He offered me the opportunity to decorate the cake and I said yes. It took me two to three days to finish the sketch. The theme is Mardi Gras; each tier will be a different color and will be decorated with beads, feathers, masks, etc. The cake will be placed in front of the hotel,” Smith said.

The cake locations are divided into five categories: Landmark Sites, Heritage & Culture, the Great Outdoors, Local Favorites and Innovation. The landmark sites will include important landmarks that have been around for ages, from nature to buildings. The heritage and culture locations will celebrate the wide variety of diverse communities. The great outdoors will include St. Louis’ outdoor sites and places. The local favorites were decided through a vote held by stl250. The Innovation will involve businesses and organizations that have been a part of St. Louis for years.

Stl250 is partnering with Candy Lab to create an app where people can learn information about a specific location. People will receive points when checking in at a location and the more points someone earns, the more they are qualified to win rewards. Stl250 is hoping to turn Cakeway to the West into a scavenger hunt that will inspire people to explore St. Louis and its many features.
