The bakery that specializes in 3-D cakes and alcohol-infused cupcakes will be moving to a new location in North County where it originally started.
Cakes by Nette, the popular Olivette bakery that specializes in 3-D cakes like you've find on TV's Ace of Cakes, will be closing shop in its Olive Boulevard location on Dec. 22.

As part of the Lindbergh Boulevard Patch Project, people in Hazelwood that have seen changes occur down the area's stretch of Lindbergh Boulevard say what they remember and what they see now.
The longest road in the St. Louis area, Lindbergh Boulevard runs roughly 30 miles through north, central and south county, touching nine of our Patch sites.
