STL250 Cakeway to the West, Part 1

Have you seen the STL250 Cakeway to the West art installation popping up all over St Louis? It's St Louis's 250th birthday in 2014, and we're celebrating all year long! There's a cake right down the street from my house, at the Carondelet Historical Society, which is in the old Des Peres School, where Susan Blow started the very first kindergarten in the United States. Our house is on the old Blow farm.

If you have known me for any length of time, you know I am obsessed with lists and collecting, especially a list I can cross off by collecting things. As of this typing there are 212 cakes, and you can find a current and printable list at stl250.org. I'm determined that this blog will showcase all the cakes by the end of the year.
