Former City Councilman Jimmy Tayoun is helped by family members as he cuts his welcome-home cake yesterday at the Middle East Restaurant. Friends of the recently released convict wanted to throw the party last month, while Tayoun was serving the last portion of his three-year prison sentence in a halfway house, but the feds wouldn't hear of it.

Mayor Rendell (the guy in the wig), his wife Midge (right) and other participants dressed in colonial garb, sample a piece of William Penn's 350th birthday cake yesterday at a ceremony in City Hall courtyard (above). Visitors are reflected in a mirrored ball (right) above the "Compass Rose" mural that Rendell and city planner Edmund Bacon dedicated. The mural is an icon of old maps; Penn's original plan for the city is at the center.

One fruit that many people associate with the Fourth of July is sweet cherries. When the summer crop is at its peak, any backyard gathering or picnic in the park is better with a basket of sweet cherries for snackers. The pits don't matter; cherries elicit delight from all ages. The possibilities for red, white and blue food combinations used to center on a compatible fruit partner - blueberries. Now, of course, there's blue gelatin. The young at heart might enjoy a batch of Blue Jell-O Jigglers this July 4 holiday to eat along with fresh sweet cherries.

I disagree with The Inquirer's Dec. 20 editorial "Give federal officials a raise. " A presidential advisory commission has recommended an 85 percent increase in the salaries of top federal officials. How in the world can we give such raises with such a huge national budget deficit? You mention the high salaries of ballplayers, business executives, lawyers, etc. Not too many federal officials resign. Why? Because they have the best benefits: Free mailing, health insurance, office space, phones, etc. Members of Congress can earn more money by giving speeches to corporations and universities.

There are many ways to say "I love you," but none that has the eloquence and sensuality of a homey, sexy, heart-melting chocolate cake. It makes no difference if one's affections are snared by the innocent charm of devil's food or the erotic ecstasy of Black Velvet; when a kiss is swathed in an afterglow of chocolate, it lingers in the memory. Yes, it's almost Valentine's Day, and yes, chocolate has always had power. Holy water to the Aztecs and status symbol in the French court, chocolate has been thought of as an aphrodisiac, a tonic, a vitamin source and a medium of exchange, but mostly it is simply one of the most sensual extravagances the culinary world has to offer.

Dear Polly: Always put a shallow pan of water in the oven when baking a cake. The water will help keep the cake moist while baking. Wrap ice cream containers in foil before putting them in the freezer. This keeps the ice cream from turning grainy. Planting marigolds by the door helps keep ants out. Keep shaving cream in your car to use as a cleaner for dirty hands. When making fudge, stir in half a pound of marshmallows before you turn the fudge out to cool.

Susan Meloney did a double-take when she caught a glimpse of the cakes in the glass counter at Terstappen's Bake Shop. These were no ordinary cakes. "Oh, geez," said Meloney as she took a closer look. One heart-shaped cake featured a black and white portrait of a baby - his features perfectly shaded. A woman and her child smiled from the top of another white-iced cake. "They're great," said Meloney, who didn't waste any time pulling out her wallet. She whipped out a photograph of her husband and ordered his birthday cake.

Middle East restaurateur James J. Tayoun, an overwhelming winner in the 1st Councilmanic District Democratic primary, had his cake and ate it too at a rowdy party in his restaurant last night. Surrounded by his family and closest political operatives, illuminated by TV lights, Tayoun picked up a knife, sliced a large layer cake and joined with his family in smashing cake in each other's faces. Within seconds, Tayoun was standing in front of a bar mirror, wiping cake off his face and dark pin-striped suit.

Confiscating advertising benches is a little like making a cake. This is not a riddle. This is Donald Kligerman's analogy to explain why ridding the city of illegal benches may take longer than he first imagined. On Nov. 19, a crew of eight spent 10 1/2 hours collecting 60 benches from sidewalks along the west side of Roosevelt Boulevard, according to Kligerman, the city's commissioner of licenses and inspections. Another collection was conducted Saturday. City officials estimate there are 2,500 ad benches, most of them in the Northeast and most, if not all, illegal.

Richard Creamer says he was living high, a real estate and entertainment lawyer with "six or seven" houses and a few nice cars, when he began a high-grade cannabis-growing operation at a North Philadelphia warehouse in 2009. "It came across my plate in a way that was like, 'This makes really, really crazy economic sense to me at this moment in my life,' and I didn't hold it to a great deal more scrutiny," said Creamer, 44. "It didn't take me very long to wish that I had. " In July 2009, federal authorities raided Creamer's operation, which produced about 20 pounds of marijuana a month, and busted Creamer and his pot-growing partner.

THE FIRST customer at Cakes by Denise in Swampoodle plopped her baby boy on the brand-new counter above the sticky buns about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday and belted out words she hadn't been able to say in 14 months. "Two vanilla pound cakes and a strawberry shortcake," Cassandra Clay, 39, told the women in yellow T-shirts buzzing about behind the counter. Denise's, a North Philly institution on the 2900 block of North 22nd Street, had been closed since a fire burned through the building in March 2015.

Gay rights have made some advances in recent years, but coming out still entails struggles, especially if you're an electronic rap artist, several of whom will perform in Philadelphia this month. Cakes da Killa, who has just reissued his 2015 Hunger Pangs with additional material, has his own strong theory about being a gay man in hip-hop, whether it's sensualized or electro-fied. "I just do me and walk in my truth," he says proudly. "How the public digests the content is their decision.

Vacations can be celebratory, and when the occasion calls for blowing out candles on a cake or other confection, wouldn't it be fun to be able not just to lick the icing, but also to eat the candles? Edible Candles from Let Them Eat Candles clearly are not travel essentials - but they're no space hogs either, so what the heck. Available in packs of three in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate, the entire candle - except for the little wick, which is paraffin-coated cotton - is edible.

Two hours before the tipoff, Temple's students were lined up on Montgomery Avenue from 15th Street down the block all the way to Broad. They had their rollouts and fatheads and their top-grade fervor. Their number one target looked down at the ground, and kept looking down, as Villanova lined up for the national anthem right in front of the student section. No, they weren't going to faze Jalen Brunson, certainly not that woman in the second row who kept yelling "Traitor!" every time Brunson dropped a jump shot.
