We all knew our days with temperatures in the 70s and low 80s were numbered. July in St. Louis is notoriously hot and humid. Today St. Louis showed its true colors with a high of 95 degrees and lots of humidity. It was the perfect day to find the five STL 250 cakes in Webster Groves, ending our journey at Serendipity Homemade Ice Cream. Click here to download a PDF file of the map below.
We started out at the Reperatory Theatre of St. Louis.
This one was a little tricky to find. You need to park in the parking lot attached to the brown and white building and walk toward the Administrative Office. It's right outside the office.
I had never been to this area before and the grounds were beautiful. Here are some pictures just outside the office.
Thee Imaginary Theatre Company at the Rep performs 3 productions on tour at schools, libraries and community centers throughout the bi-state St. Louis area October through April. Check out their website for more info.
Next we walked over to the Webster University cake. It was on Garden Avenue right outside the book store and parking garage. Everything around the school is beautifully landscaped.
It was pretty hot outside so we decided to get our car and drive over to the Opera Theatre of St. Louis (although this is easily walkable from the University Book Store if your kids aren't complaining about the heat and wanting to be carried).
There was a pretty fountain and courtyard in front of the building.
Our last stop (and the reward for the kids) was Serendipity Homemade Ice Cream.
Tim got a scoop of the Salted Caramel and I got a scoop of the Gooey Butter Cake. They were both very good, but Ava made the best choice. She got a scoop of the Gold Coast Chocolate - it was amazing! You have to at least ask to try it if you go.
As we headed home we passed The College School. I just assumed it was another college, but it's actually an independent preschool - 8th grade school.
The kids had had enough of finding cakes so I hopped out of the car to take some pictures.
It was nice that they had a sign next to their cake describing their school. Too bad they have a spelling error!! I think it's spelled "buses" not "busses". Oops!
This is their bus that they talk about in the above sign. They have a green house attached to their school too. Looks like a great school!
Happy cake hunting!
