STL 250 Cake Quest - Clayton

The Clayton cake hunt turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected.  Here is my map:

We found the cake at The Cheshire during our second Forest Park cake quest so today we started out at Concordia Seminary.

Concordia Seminary
Concordia Seminary is beautiful as was their cake. 
It is the second oldest Lutheran seminary in the U.S. 
We walked around the grounds for a while before heading out.

Francis Field
Francis Field was the home of the 1904 Olympic Games.
The cake was right next to the main gate.

Historic Hanley House
I love the giant tree stump that served as the cake's base.
This house was built in 1855 and remains the oldest structure in the City of Clayton.  It once stood on 104 acres of farmland.  Mr. Hanley and his wife lived in this home with their 11 children.

Centene Corporation
Centene Corporation is a national leader in the healthcare services field.

St. Louis County Courthouse
This cake was located between the St. Louis County Police Headquarters and the County Courthouse near the big grassy area.

Brown Shoe Company
Brown Shoe Company is a $2.5 billion global footwear company.
This stop was so much fun!  The girls played on the giant high heel shoe statue forever!
Everyone had to try on a pair of heels.

Shaw Park
This is the stop we've been waiting for...Shaw Park!
Established in 1935, this is Clayton's oldest park.
We headed straight to Tree Top Playground.
One of the great things about this playground/sprayground combo is that it's entirely fenced in.  As long as the gates stay closed, the kids will have a hard time escaping.  Another great thing is the picnic area.
After a quick refueling, the kids were ready to go back and play some more.
This is the map I used to get around Shaw Park.  
The cake is located outside the Aquatic Center on Brentwood Blvd.

On the way home we drove by Sweetology.
Unfortunately, Clara and Sidney couldn't eat the delicious cupcakes because of their food allergies so the girls picked out some fancy lollipops instead.  The lollipops are so pretty that they don't want to eat them!

Clayton is such a beautiful city.  I can't wait to come back again!
