Carvel Graduation Cake
Carvel does not offer any graduation cake designs. Most people who wish to serve one of their ice cream cakes at a graduation party choose to purchase a customized celebration cake and then have it decorated in the graduate’s school colors.
Some Carvel locations offer photo cakes and can print the graduate’s photograph on a cake to personalize it. The cost for these cakes is usually more than the standard Carvel cake pricing above.
Carvel Baby Shower Cakes
There are no baby shower cakes in the Carvel cakes designs lineup. If you want to serve one of their cakes at a baby shower, you can purchase a standard cake and have it decorated in pink, blue or yellow icing. Then, you can add a message for the mom-to-be.
Carvel Wedding Cakes
Carvel does not offer wedding cakes. Some couples may choose to purchase a standard Carvel cake to serve as the main dessert, a secondary dessert or a groom’s cake at their weddings. Usually, the cakes are simply decorated in the wedding colors. Instead of adding an inscription, you can leave the cake blank and then add a cake topper that you purchase elsewhere to the cake. If you want to purchase a more traditional wedding cake, you can order a custom made wedding cake from Sam’s Club.
