It is still sitting outside the Blue Owl as of April 2017.

Missouri Native American cake   (formerly the First Missouri State Capitol cake)

The Cakelovers decided to do a pre-stl250 cake (before 1764) by painting a cake that highlights the Native American history, heritage and culture in the area. It was done by Mark Swain, the multi-cake artist who is a member of the AhNiYunWiYa tribe. The First Missouri State Capitol cake, which was in the possession of the Cakelovers and on public display in Maplewood, was showing heavy signs of wear.

The cake has made several appearances around the area to date, starting with the Let Them Eat Art! event in Maplewood, as well as being displayed inside Carondelet Library in late 2016.
