About the author

Hello, my name is Jason, and I am one of the thousands of 'cake-hunters' (or stalkers) that took part in this activity!

This is where the 'I' part frequently comes in.

I really hope to hear from you and read stories. Especially from fellow 'cake-hunters'!

I have a lot of interests in certain areas. I do a radio show on WLCA 89.9 FM, hosting the Sunday night shows WLC80s and 89.90s. The station's website is wlcafm.com

I'm also in the process of putting together the website for an organization (for cake-hunters and lovers) called stlouis250cakelovers. It is up and running

Sports team: St. Louis Cardinals
Movie: Almost Famous
TV Show: Don't really have one, but just old sitcoms from the 80s and early 90s
Comedian: George Carlin
Historical figure: Benjamin Franklin
Concert: Paul McCartney!
Quote: Too many to mention, I'd have to make a quote book!

I collect too many things. I do have a sizeable vinyl record collection, and I enjoy attending concerts (I've seen way too many!)


  1. Hi Jason,

    I'm a fellow "cake lover" and think your site on the cakes is amazing! I'm originally from St. Louis, but only get there once a year now, in August. This year I was there for three weeks, and spent quite a bit of time photographing cakes. But, I was able to get only about seventy of them. I concentrated on ones that had personal meaning for me, but photographing some in areas I wasn't familiar with was also very worthwhile.

    Anyway, I wanted to ask you a question. I think I read somewhere that the cakes are going to be around only until the end of the year. My question is: do you think it's possible that a lot of them will actually remain after that? After all, one would think that most of the places where the cakes are located would be interested in keeping them, since they generate so much interest. And these cakes are works of art after all. I can't believe they would wind up in storage or be destroyed. So, what do you think will happen to them?

    I'm older than you (68) and do remember Gaslight Square. In fact, I spent many of my formative years in an area only a few blocks from Gaslight Square.

    I also remember when "Vintage Vinyl", in the Delmar Loop area was the Varsity Theater. As a "movie buff" (even back then) I went to the Varsity (and the Tivoli) all the time. And of course, since we lived only a few blocks from the Fox Theater and the St. Louis Theater (now Powell Symphony Hall), I also spent a lot of time there. I really miss those times!

    1. Hello Phil! Thank you for checking out my blog, and I am very appreciative for the kind words. That's great that you got 70 cakes within 3 weeks! Because of this caking thing I have gained more respect for most of these locations.

      As for the future of the cakes, all places are supposed to keep them up until December 31 of this year, but after that remains up in the air. Whatever happens to them is up to the cake location host. I don't think any of them will be destroyed (except for maybe those in really bad shape like the Imos one). The only one I know about is the one at the Scott Joplin House, where the tour guide told me they will be putting it on display inside of the museum, mostly during special occasions. It wouldn't surprise me if Joe Edwards would display all of the ones on Delmar inside Blueberry Hill! There are also rumors that some of the cake locations will be selling and/or auctioning them off. We shall see what happens :)
