At Noon, under the tent at Buckingham Fountain, Grant Park, we invited Taste visitors to watch the giant birthday cheesecake be lifted off the truck by a forklift, see Eli’s pastry chefs put the final touches on the cake, and play cheesecake trivia games.  After that, we began the Cake Cutting Ceremony, followed by a round of Happy Birthday led by Waitress cast members. Watch Laurel Boger, our Executive Pastry Chef prepare the Big Cake below!

We also had a Foodie Photo Challenge for people to participate in on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. See our three winners below! Winners were awarded Eli’s Desserts and Gear.
