High school students graduate in Mid-May in Nebraska and graduation cakes start flying off the shelves. It’s different than a wedding, where the bride and groom will have a cake testing session before picking their baker. Most people go to Sams or their local grocery bakery and get a cake. My son and I had some amazing cake at a wedding we attended about a month ago. The baker was in attendance so I approached her there and we arranged for graduation.
I like supporting local businesses, and a fresh baked cake from Lynnn would be so much fresher and tastier than the cakes from Sam’s that receive frozen sheets by the gross and use prepackaged frosting. It didn’t really cost any more either. Thirty dollars for a half sheet.
Did I tell you that David graduates on his 18th birthday? He wanted a special birthday cake along with it and picked chocolate. Lynns double chocolate cake was to die for and many people asked who made the cakes. Total on both cakes $45.00, including delivery. Thanks Lynn
We didn’t have much cake left, all that remained was the picture corner and a small wedge of chocolate.
Most seniors at Elmwood-Murdock have their parties on the Saturday of graduation. The parties are pretty much the same, open house style with friends and family and lots of food. On graduation Saturday you can easily go to 9-10 parties, that’s if you’re fast. Halfway through the day you don’t want to look at another pice of cake. I honestly feel bad for those families who buy full sheet cakes only to have a couple of pieces eaten.
More on the festivities to come!
