Cakeway to the West - December 21st, 2014
I've completed my "Cakeway to the West" project, having visited and photographed all 253 St. Louis birthday cakes. I put together a little book, which can be found here.
Happy Birthday St. Louis - July 20th, 2014
This year marks the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis. Part of the celebration, the "Cakeway to the West" project, is a public art exhibit which highlights significant and/or interesting places throughout the region. Two hundred and fifty birthday cake have been decorated by local artists and installed at these locations. Like many St. Louis residents, I've been tracking down and photographing the cakes. My cake map shows all the locations as well as photos of the cakes I've visited. It's been a bit slow, but I am updating as fast as I can get around to all of them. For more information about the project, you might want to check out the Cakeway to the West web site.
