TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – It’s almost Kansas’ birthday and one cake decorator in Topeka is making sure it’s a memorable one.
Lauren Berg, a pastry chef at the Dillons on SW 10th Ave. is creating the 157th birthday cake for the occasion.
Berg got to the store at 7 a.m. and said would take her all day to make the detailed creation. Last year she also make the state cake and it took her fourteen hours.
The design has a World War I influence. Berg says the Kansas State Historical Society helped give her some inspiration but that the cake is her design.
“There’s only one state cake and to know that its mine makes it is a big honor,” Berg says.
The cake will be served at the statehouse on Friday for the Kansas Day celebration.
