Mini Personalized Cakes Are The Perfect Way To Celebrate Graduates This Year
Posted at 6:00 AM, May 22, 2020

With graduations looking different this year or simply not being held at all, it’s a tough time to be finishing up high school or college. Just because traditional ceremonies and parties are being canceled or postponed, however, does not mean the milestone can’t be celebrated in other ways.

From social distancing parades to your own personal photoshoot, yard signs or even building a stage in the driveway like this dad, there are plenty of ways to make graduation special. And now, you can also include a very special, albeit smaller, cake in the celebration — thanks to Sam’s Club.

If you’ll be inviting just a few people over to celebrate or having a party just for those living in your home, Sam’s Club has your back. The retailer is now making smaller but just as fancy graduation cakes for social distancing-friendly celebrations. The personalized cakes look the same as the traditional ones you would see at a graduation celebration, but they offer fewer servings.

Available at Sam’s Club bakeries nationwide, each cake can be personalized with a graduate’s school colors, a heartfelt message or even their photo. They’re available in various sizes: a 10-inch single-layer cake or 15 cupcakes costs $8.98, or you can get a mini two-tier cake that serves 8-12 for $11.98.

Pricing varies based on cake size and decor, and because they’re specially made, you will need to head to your local Sam’s Club to order them. They cannot be purchased online.

If you are in an area where you can have a bigger party, you can also order three-tier cakes, which have 66 servings and cost $69.98, or around $1.06 per serving.

You can get them in school colors and with multiple decorations as well, including a graduation cap and diploma and sayings like “The future is bright” and “Going places.”

And don’t forget, you still have a few days to stop by your local Krispy Kreme to get the Graduate Dozen doughnut box, with six types of doughnuts spelling out the numbers “2020.” They’re available through May 24.

Do you have a graduate you’ll be celebrating with a more intimate at-home party this year?
