Spotlight: Exhibition is a piece of cake -- really

Feb 14, 2012

The sweetest art exhibition of the year is coming to the Missouri Botanical Garden this weekend. 

Cakes and cookies made by members of the St. Louis Metropolitan Sugar Art Guild will be on display at the Garden on Sunday in “Sugared, Spiced and Everything Iced.” The exhibition is a feast for the eyes but eating the featured creations is not allowed. The event will include decorating demonstrations and the opportunity to ask the baker-designers about their craft. 

The four dozen members of the Guild meet four times a year for sweet talk about all things sugar. They also participate in Christmas baking events.
