I have to admit that my favorite cake is simply a Costco Sheet Cake. It doesn’t matter if it’s vanilla or chocolate, they are both amazing. Besides ordering them for birthdays, you can also get seasonal decorated cakes. Plus, one of the most popular places to buy a graduation cake is actually Costco. In 2012, Costco sold around one million sheet cakes during the eight-week graduation season!
These half sheet cakes weigh in at about 9.5 pounds, measures 12 inches by 16 inches, and can serve around 48 people. What an affordable way to feed a big crowd at just $18.99 ($19.99 in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico) for any special occasion like birthdays, baby showers, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation and so on. And designs may change from year to year with input from Costco bakers, who do such a great job skillfully decorating every cake by hand.
To personalize your cake, fill out the cake order selection form at your Costco bakery, giving them a 1-day advanced notice. One option is a white cake that is filled with 2 pounds of vanilla cheesecake mousse and iced with white buttercream. The other option is a chocolate cake filled with 2 pounds of chocolate truffle mousse and iced with chocolate buttercream. Include a personal message and select your colors for roses (if that’s the design selected).
If you are purchasing a graduation cake, include the school colors.
Here are some graduation cake options that were available at the Covington, WA Costco in 2015.
Please remember to keep the cake refrigerated and you can always freeze leftovers (thaw in refrigerator 24 hours before serving).
Let’s not forget our university graduates.
