My dad always liked to throw a party. Before inventing his cheesecake and the Big Cakes that we have become famous for, my dad worked in big sheet cakes.

This photo was taken of Eli and some of his fans when he was the Staff Sergeant in the Army Air Corps running the PX at the base in Salt Lake City. We look forward to recreating this photo at Taste of Chicago on June 25th when we present Taste of Chicago and Eli’s Cheesecake’s 25th Birthday Cake.
