So long, Costco Sheet Cakes. We had some good times together! 😭
Collin here just shedding a tear. 😢 While I do eat keto most of the time, it’s true that I have a soft spot in my heart for a nice, big corner piece of Costco sheet cake on my birthday. Yes, I’m the person who always goes for those corners. Why? Because frosting, of course! 😋
With this in mind, you can imagine how bummed I was to hear that Costco recently discontinued selling its popular half sheet cakes. These beauties are gone… 😩
Hoping that this sad news was just a rumor, we headed over to our local Costco to see if this could possibly be true. Sure enough, we saw our location’s bakery filled with lots of yummy baked goods, but there was not a single sheet cake in sight.
One of my sidekicks recently tried to order a half sheetcake in another state, and she learned that they no longer sell them in her area either.
It turns out that Costco isn’t selling its sheet cakes at any of its US locations at the moment, and it has no immediate plans to bring them back.
While the warehouse club hasn’t explained its decision, one theory is that the demand for these cakes has decreased as fewer people are gathering for celebrations during the COVID-19 pandemic. It seems like many folks are celebrating on a smaller scale with smaller cakes these days.
If this is the reason for the disappearance of Costco’s half sheet cakes, then maybe there’s a glimmer of hope that someday they will return. 🙌
In the meantime, you can still get round birthday cakes from the Costco bakery, and they’re made with all the same yummy ingredients as their famous sheet cakes. Now if only they could find a way to bake some corners into those round cakes… 😉
