Mozart’s will celebrate Clintonville’s 170th birthday with a massive birthday cake designed to feed the neighborhood in conjunction with the inaugural Experience Clintonville Days event.
At over 6 feet long and 5 feet wide, the cake will rank as one of the largest sheet cakes in the Midwest area. A special thanks goes out to Brooke Kinsey of Bleu & Fig for providing flowers for the birthday cake!
Mozart’s invites the community to a celebratory cake cutting at 4 p.m. Saturday, September 16, 2017. Jeanette Legg, a Clintonville resident living at Olentangy Village and one of Mozart’s longest and most loyal customers, will help cut the cake with our Chief Guest Mayor Andrew J. Ginther. Guests can expect live music with Arnett Howard and Mark Werling and a champagne toast, plus a complimentary slice of cake.
The Clintonville bakery is no stranger to oversized cake stunts. Mozart’s pastry chef and co-owner Doris Saha has made cakes to commemorate Ohio’s bicentennial and the city of Columbus’ 200th birthday, as well as the neighborhood of Clintonville’s 150th anniversary.
Twenty years ago, that giant birthday cake for Clintonville fed over a thousand people and drew plenty of coverage from the local news media. Mozart’s had been open just two years in 1997 and the cake helped cement the bakery’s reputation as a champion for the Clintonville community.
In 2011, Mozart’s owner Anand Saha founded Experience Clintonville, an organization dedicated to promoting the neighborhood of Clintonville and celebrating its business community. The group’s first ever Experience Clintonville Days event is designed to get people out and exploring the neighborhood and supporting Clintonville businesses. Thirty-five Clintonville businesses will participate.
