Sanders Bumpy Cake Shortage Hits Michigan! How to Score a Slice
Say it isn't so! For the first time in over 100 years, Michigan may find itself in a not-so-sweet situation.
Sanders, the iconic Michigan confectionery, is facing a bittersweet predicament: they're running out of their famous Bumpy Cake. Yes, you read that right! The delectable, irresistible Bumpy Cake that has tantalized our taste buds for generations is now in limited supply and may be gone forever.
Vic Mehren, the CEO of Sanders' parent company Second Nature Brands, announced the sour news on the brand's Facebook page this week that the iconic treat created by Sanders founder Fred Sander may be no more.
"In August of this year, Minnie Marie Bakers, Inc., our longtime Bumpy Cakes bakery partner, announced they would be closing their bakery in Livonia. Long-known as Awrey’s, this is where Bumpy Cakes had been produced for many years. When we received this unexpected news, we began an exhaustive search for a new bakery partner to take over making Sanders Bumpy Cakes", Mehren wrote."After conversations with more than a dozen bakeries, we have not yet found a new partner who can maintain the high quality and classic taste that our consumers expect and deserve. Unfortunately, this means that Bumpy Cakes will soon be out of stock until we can find a new bakery partner with the capabilities to get us back into production".
