Karl Knodel was a talented and artistic 14 year-old in 1884, when he was selected to attend a cake decorating school in Basel Switzerland.



After six years of study he graduated as a Master Baker and immigrated to America.

In 1901 Karl opened Knodel’s Bakery at 14th Street and Benton Ave. in St. Louis, Mo. He specialized in wedding cakes and special occasion cakes for his customers.

Karl retired in 1930 and the bakery was taken over by his son, Sydney, who opened a bakery on West Florissant Ave. in Jennings. He sold wedding cakes and special occasion cakes decorated by Julia Youngerman who had been trained by Karl as a wedding cake decorator.

Julia continued to decorate Knodel’s cakes for sixty years and passed on the training she had received to Marlene Inglish, Grand Daughter of Karl, who continued the family tradition of making beautiful wedding cakes for Brides of St. Louis.

Today, after 106 years, the tradition continues , and Cynthia Miskell, Great Grand Daughter of Karl, who was trained by Julia and Marlene, makes beautiful and special occasion cakes for the customers of Knodel’s Bakery.

The fifth generation of fine decorators of wedding cakes, Miss Sydney Winders, is now in training. She will undoubtedly some day become part of the Knodel tradition of fine cakes for Knodel’s customers. Read less

It was very very difficult working with the bakery when odering. I finally comprimised on what I wanted because I was getting so frustrated with the rep I was speaking with. The cake was delicious, but it looked like a 4 year old had crayoned all over it. Fortunately, our fab catering rep decorated it with flowers to hide the bad design. In addition, they WAY underestimated how much cake we would need. The groom and I didnt get any besides the bites we cut out. The cost was ridiculous. It all turned out great, but I would not recommend this company to other couples.

The people working there were extremely prompt and professional. The cake was delivered at the specified time as promised, and looked amazing. It was under what we had budgeted for a cake, and the quality was great. I had so many compliments on the cake and the way it tasted. My wedding date wasn't ever set in stone since my husband is in the military and had just gotten back from a deployment, and they were more than willing to work with me.

I don't know what happened but the cake I ordered was not the cake I received on my wedding day. We ordered a cake with cascading roses with Christmas lights intertwined. When I got the to reception to cut the cake it was just white and off set. Definitely not the cake I wanted and definitely not the cake I wante in my wedding pictures. They did give us a minor credit but I would have rather had the cake I ordered. Besides the lack of design, the cake tasted really good.

While the actual cost of the cake is unknown, as it was included in our reception cost per person, the cake was yummy! They totally worked with what we wanted, and I loved my cake design. We had SO much leftover, which was great too.
