435 Confluence Tower Dr., Hartford, IL, 62048 / Cake artist: Jean Ponzi
The Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower was built in commemoration of the historic expedition. It opened in 2010. The 180-foot tower has three viewing platforms at 50, 100 and 150-feet connecting the two towers that represent Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, as well as, the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Every level tells a story, and you get great views, such as the confluence of the rivers. You can even see the St. Louis skyline (on a clear day)!
Cake placement date: March 6
Where is the cake now?: The cake still sits by the tower. (April 2017)
