Big Cake at the Taste of Chicago @ Buckingham Fountain
Jul 14 @ 12:00 pm

TasteCakeEli’s & Taste of Chicago’s Birthday Cake!

What could top an Eli’s 1,000 lb birthday cheesecake?  Turning the top layer into a giant cherry pie, in honor of this year’s celebrity cake cutters: cast members from the national tour of Waitress, a delicious musical making its Chicago debut at Broadway In Chicago’s Cadillac Palace Theatre July 3-July 22, 2018.

The fun begins on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at Taste of Chicago…the very place where Eli Schulman introduced his first Eli’s Cheesecake to the world, and where Eli’s remains the only original vendor at Taste. Eli’s has sold over 5 million slices of rich and creamy cheesecake at Taste over the past 37 years.

At Noon, under the tent at Buckingham Fountain, Grant Park, (look for the sign “The Big Cake Is Here!”), the public is invited 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.  At 12:30 pm the Cake Cutting Ceremony will begin, followed by a round of Happy Birthday led by Waitress cast members.   The cake will then be served free to the public (while supplies last).
