Baltimore's Bicentennial birthday cake, claimed to be the World's largest Birthday Cake, is ready. The cake, weighing 69,000 pounds, rests on 51-by-24-foot plywood frame - placed on 120-foot Army barge at Pier Six - that is shaped as a map of the U.S., with Alaska and Hawaii as separate sections

ABOUT THE BLOGGER


Richard Gorelick was appointed The Baltimore Sun's restaurant critic in September 2010. Before joining the paper staff fulltime, he contributed freelance criticism and features articles about food to area and regional publications. Along the way, he dispatched for short-distance trucking companies, shilled for cultural non-profits, and assisted in cognitive neurology research — never the subject, always the control. He takes restaurants seriously but not himself, and his favorite restaurant is the one you love, too.
