If you’ve driven in or through Maplewood, you’ve definitely seen some cakes lying around! That is, in front of Sutton Park and some local businesses. Many have asked about what it’s all about….first a little story. The annual ‘Let Them Eat Art’ parade and get-together in Maplewood took place on July 10. That was when several artists and dealers sold their work along the streets. Some businesses sold food and such, and most of the action took place in Sutton Park (on Sutton Road). There was also a brief parade of cakes, all of them were those that were placed around the St. Louis area. Some of the cake artists were present at the event, doing live art.
As of now, the cakes are on display in Maplewood until sometime in the end of August (no exact date known). So please take advantage of checking out these awesome cakes again (just like last year!)! Just a quick note: rules still apply; don’t climb or sit on the cake. Respect and love the art!
