Costco Cake for as far as the eye can see!

Costco Cake for as far as the eye can see!

At the end of May, Prescott (Arizona) celebrated their 150th birthday.  And we all know no birthday celebration is complete without a great cake, preferably from Costco.  Of course, if you are a city and you will be celebrating your birthday with a few thousand of your citizens, then it needs to be a really, really big cake.  But also still from Costco.

The great bakery team at the Costco location in Prescott, on Highway 69, made one heck of a big cake for the town’s big celebration.  How big you are probably wondering, right?  They had a 150 square foot cake!  That’s a room-sized cake! Look how small the people look standing next to it in the picture.  LOL  It is enormous!  But since there were around 3,000 people at the celebration, I’d say this was the perfect reason to have bought in bulk from Costco.

It took a team of nine Costco employees – five from the bakery and four from marketing – hours to just assemble the cake and have it ready to go for the big festivities.  Can you imagine how long it took them to bake such a big amount of cake?  After they assembled the cake, they added a layer of icing and a timeline featuring important moments from Prescott’s past, including Gov. John Fremont from 1878, the Washington School from 1903, and suffragette Frances Munds from 1912.

So congratulations, Prescott!  And congratulations to the team from Costco Prescott for putting together such a fabulous cake!

      LOL Somehow I think it probably wasn’t. Maybe they had a coupon though – buy one, get 150 free.
