Time for Cake
Walcott Iowa 80 TA serves up a delicious way to celebrate
More than ten thousand drivers and their families were wowed by a lot at this year’s Truckers Jamboree at the Walcott Iowa 80 TA. A concert by Aaron Tippin, fireworks, a truck beauty contest with more than 80 vehicles, more than 200 antique trucks, games, pork chops and lots of exhibits were all part of the fun. But one particular moment took the cake.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Jamboree, and the 45th anniversary of the location itself, an incredible truck-shaped dessert was rolled out and served to more than a thousand attendees.
The cake, a delicious replica of this year’s Jamboree truck model, took two days to create, weighed 300 pounds and was eight feet long. “We are proud to be able to celebrate trucking,” says Delia Moon Meier, Iowa 80 Truckstop senior vice president, who happily sliced into the edible work of art.
