Posted on Thursday, July 3, 2014 at 4:52 pm

The City of Troy’s Historic Woods Fort Park (the log cabin downtown) at Boone and Main Streets has been chosen as a site for Cakeway to the West as 250thCakesma birthday cake sculpture host.  The cake was installed this afternoon at approximately 4:00 p.m.

“Stl250’s Cakeway to the West” is a signature project for the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis.  Stl250 will place 250 four-foot-tall cake sculptures made of fiberglass that have been decorated by St. Louis artists at places of note throughout the 15-county bi-state St. Louis region.  The cakes will be on display until December 31, 2014.

Troy’s cake was designed by artist Paul La Flam.
