Sanders famous Bumpy Cake is turning 100 years old in April. The company is celebrating locally at all of their Metro Detroit stores by offering a FREE Slice of Chocolate Bumpy Cake on Saturday April 27th. Chocolate Bumpy Cake boxes will be adorned with a celebratory emblem (pictured below) for this Birthday event. Many national retailers have also joined in the celebration and will be passing along discounts to customers and highlighting the 100th Birthday on their freezer doors for the next few months. Hiller’s grocery stores and The Detroit Shoppe at Somerset Mall in Michigan are also participating in the Free Slice Giveaway.

It all started in 1913 when Sanders opened its bakery division and started making unique style cakes with their signature buttercream icing. One cake in particular bakers co-created with the confectionary division, was a chocolate layer cake with buttercream piping on top and then coated in a rich fudge topping. The cake was later named “Bumpy Cake” by local customers coming in and requesting it by asking for the “cake with the bumps.”

Today, Sanders Bumpy Cake comes in 3 sizes; the original round Layer Cake, the 8X8 Tea Cake and the single layer Party Cake. 

The “Bumpy” style cake has expanded to include Raspberry Bumpy, Vanilla Buttercream Bumpy and Caramel Spice Bumpy. Sanders baked goods have been sold mainly in Metro Detroit for generations but have established a national presence over the last few years and continue to grow in popularity.

All Sanders stores will be selling Chocolate Bumpy Tea Cakes for $5.00 April 27 only while supplies last.
