Maybe it's the delicious taste of that Michigan state, the Sanders Bumpy Cake. If that sweet tooth deficiency has been the problem, we've got some great news.

Last fall it was like a piece of history was being taken away when Michigan when last fall Michigan found itself in a not-so-sweet situation for the first time in over 100 years. Sanders, the iconic Michigan confectionery, was facing a bittersweet predicament: they were running out of their famous Bumpy Cake. The delectable, irresistible Bumpy Cake that has tantalized our taste buds for generations is now in limited supply and at risk of being gone forever.

Sanders was forced to halt production of its legendary treat after Minnie Marie Bakers, Inc., their 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. Sanders got the word out that Bumpy Cakes would be in short supply until a new bakery could fill the void.
