Birthday Cake Program, Surprise Them with a Cake!
Let your son or daughter know just how much you care by surprising them with a cake for their birthday or any other special occasion! Students are delighted to receive a sweet surprise – during exam week, when a paper or project is due – no reason is needed to remind your son or daughter, though they may be apart from you, they are never alone.
Send us the order form one week before the event, and we’ll take care of the rest! Remember, we are closed on Saturday and Sunday, so make sure to schedule your cake on a weekday. All telephone orders must be prepaid with a Visa or MasterCard in order to guarantee delivery.
When the day of the delivery rolls around, we will contact your son/daughter by phone and ask them to come by the Alumni Center located in Hodgin Hall. When they arrive, we’ll sing Happy Birthday to them and take photos. We will supply a card with your name and personal message inside. Cakes are baked fresh daily at a local bakery.
Order your birthday cake today with our secure online form.
