Costco Has Stopped Selling Its Super-Popular Half Sheet Cakes
Costco is pausing the sale of its very popular half-sheet cakes in its bakeries in favor of round 10-inch cakes.
The company confirmed the move in a statement to Delish: "We are not currently selling our 1/2 sheet cakes at any US location and we have no immediate plans to return them. We are focusing on our smaller 10" white & 10 "chocolate cakes, that seem to appeal to our members. "
They published similar information in May on a post on their Facebook page and found that "half-leaf cakes are not currently available to order or customize".
As you probably know, Costco's sheet cakes are ENORMOUS popular because people order them for everything from birthday parties to weddings. While we don't know exactly why Costco took this step, we can only conclude that this is likely due to a drop in demand as fewer people host parties and gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many other bakeries across the country have done similar things, offering custom and smaller cakes for graduation parties for easy enjoyment while being socially isolated.
The comment section of Costco's post was certainly full of people who expressed their disappointment with the change, but it was also full of people who identified themselves as Costco employees and others who were customers, some of whom shared their theories about the Layer outlined. As they stressed, many retailers like Costco are making minor changes to their businesses to ensure that all of the stores have what they need amidst rising demand and supply chain disruptions as the US COVID 19 pandemic continues to rage.
Regardless of the reason for the change, as Costco emphasized, there is still a way to celebrate milestones with a Costco cake by ordering one of the round versions.
