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.

Eli’s Cheesecake is Tradition for One Blogger from D.C.

Yesterday, Jessica from the blog “What a Novel Thought”, wrote about her recent trip to visit her family in Chicago, which according to her family’s tradition includes a stop at The Taste of Chicago, specifically Eli’s Cheesecake Booth. She wrote about how “it was worth the heat and crowds and the loooong walking to go to the Taste and indulge in a slice of fabulously decadent cheesecake”. Her son finally had his first slice of Eli’s at the Taste, and here at Eli’s we couldn’t be more proud! Check out the post and Jessica’s blog at: http://whatanovelthought.com/2012/07/17/a-trip-down-memory-lane/
