Since 1976 Costco has provided low-cost products and services to members without sacrificing quality. Initially located in a former Californian airplane hanger, the warehouse club transformed itself from a wholesaler catering into a worldwide full service retailer. Therefore, millions of members visit Costco locations daily to make purchases for their homes. Also, until 2020 Costco cakes have been one of the chain’s most popular products.
However, as you probably already heard, the pandemic stroke this sweet area too. Unfortunately, Costco has eliminated the iconic half-sheet cakes that were the centerpiece of graduation, birthday, and even baby shower parties. Now, that was a shock for everybody!
So, in this article we are going to talk about all the other sweet options Costco has to offer at the moment. Also, we will present you their initial cakes offer, considering that after the pandemic everything will come back to normal. Therefore, enough introductions! Let’s begin!

Wedding days are memorable for all involved, but preparing for a wedding is often stressful. On the other hand, hiring a professional to plan the wedding is expensive and not always an option for an engaged couple.
So, instead, many couples plan their own weddings and one of the highlights of the wedding planning process is finding the perfect wedding cake.

Although, if you plan a little ceremony with not too many guests, they can have you covered. So, Costco wedding cakes can be decorated with a variety of decorations and are sold in one size only – a half sheet cake that serves 48 guests.
Costco Baby Shower Cakes
The impending arrival of a new baby is an exciting time for growing families. Towards the end of the pregnancy, the new mother’s friends and family members usually host a baby shower.
Even though everyone looks forward to giving their gifts, the baby shower cake is also always eagerly anticipated. So, why not pick a Costco baby shower cake? They are baby-themed and exactly designed with baby showers in mind.
Also, the freshly baked cakes are available in multiple flavors making it easier to find a cake that will tempt even the pickiest mother to be. What a blessing!

Graduations are a milestone for students and their families. So, after the stressful period of final exams, most students want to relax and celebrate their accomplishments.
Holding a graduation party is one way a family can encourage the new graduate to unwind while simultaneously congratulating them.
Therefore, Costco graduation cakes are a great way to show pride, appreciation, and turn a normal family gathering into a party. Not to mention that Costco graduation cakes are decorated with messages of love and congratulations and they are a wonderful way to make a graduation party memorable.
