(KTVI) -  This weekend St. Louis may be known as the "Cakeway to the West" instead of the Gateway to the West.

Helping to celebrate STL 250 is  Rich Brook, Cakeway to the West Artist.

Two hundred and fifty cakes in all are strategically placed throughout the St. Louis metro area and 15 counties.

The four-foot-tall cake sculptures decorated by local artists will serve as interactive beacons of our region’s diverse places, stories and experiences.

    These sculpture-cakes are not going to be put in the locations they
    represent. And many artists were apparently prohibited from specifically
    saying what St. Louis feature is being represented. Thus the cake of
    Tower Grove Park will be placed in Illinois, at Pere Marquette State Park,
    but that cake will not identify what it portrays. What is the point of that?
    How can it draw potential visitors to the feature, if the feature is not
    identified, and the cake is far from what it portrays? This is an outstand-
    ingly stupid way to do this project.
