Updates on cakes, good and bad….

First, the bad…..it appears, according to a cake-hunter (who owns 2 cakes) that a friend of theirs saw the cake at the Grand Avenue Water Tower has been destroyed. It is believed that it was hit by a snow plowing machine, as St. Louis has experienced wintery weather within the past week. This has been the first real snowfall this Winter for the St. Louis area. The cake had been in a vulnerable location, as it was very close to the road, although it was placed close to the center of a turnabout.

  1. What has happened to the Grand Water Tower cake since it has been damaged. Is someone going to fix it, does it need a home? My grandfather used to drive the Grand Ave. streetcar. And it was a beautiful cake!

    1. Hello Mary, thanks for the comment. That’s some cool history on your father! The Grand Water Tower cake (now in pieces) is now currently in repairs by a caker (who also has the Centene Corporation cake in his possession). He hopes to put it back together and have an unveiling sometime in the future. We’ll keep you posted!
