St. Joseph’s Academy, located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Louis, was originally in a log cabin in the village of Carondelet. It is the second all girls private Catholic high school in St. Louis, founded in 1836. Over the decades, the institution has continued to grow out of buildings due to the increase of the student body. It was at one time located at the present-day Fontbonne College. The present-day building was constructed in 1954, with parts added on over the years. Since 1974, its motto is ‘Not I, But We’.
Cake placement date: March 6
Where is the cake now?: On the weekend of February 27-March 1, 2015, the cake was sold at a fundraising event at St. Joseph’s Academy. It is now the highest known price paid for a cake, as it sold for $3,000! It has since been placed on display inside the school, as it is believed to have been donated back. (August 2019)
Notes: The cake is one of two that has that famous local phrase, ‘Where did YOU go to high school?’ (the other being the University City Lion Gates)
