In celebration of the city of St. Louis's 250th birthday this year (2014), there was a special cake. Times that by 250, that is!
Called 'Cakeway to the West', 250+ cakes have been placed all over the St. Louis area, including the Metro East. Places that have cakes include historical landmarks, parks, museums, popular restaurants, as well as government places. These are just a few examples as the places represented St. Louis in a memorable way.

#36: America's Central Port/YMCA
The only cake in Granite City, Illinois. Usually when people think of Granite City, they most likely think of the steel mill which helped build the city. Granite City was originally a suburb of East St. Louis, that was built on German and Polish immigrants who easily found work in its factories. The city became a healthy working-class town. However, in the last 3 decades the town has, well, I'm not sure the best way to put it, but has slipped in such a way. There's a lot of factors I could get into. But despite of all this, Granite City is the largest city in Madison County, Illinois.
