My Fi and I are having Costco cake. Our "preferred venue cake baker" sucks monkey nuts. The cake is so bad I couldn’t bare to make everyone eat it! Yuck.
What do you recommend as far as flavors? We are having probably 3 kinds. White with strawberry filling (my Fi hates raspberry and apparently his family doesn’t like it either), chocolate with chocolate mousse, then something else! But what?!?!?!

I’m an employee there and a huge cake fan. They have a carrot cake but personally I’ve never tried it. I’m a big fan of the white cake with the vanilla cheesecake mousse I think that would be a perfect third option. Also remember that you can play around with the icings but if it was me I’d stay away from the whipped because it tends to run buttercreams the way to go.

I agree about buttercream frosting. And I also love the cheesecake filling.
I have their carrot cake- I thought it was good and the creamcheese frosting was really good.
What other options are there?

Oooh, I LOVE Costco cake! Great idea! I’m not as familiar with all of their flavors, though — what are some other options?

I really like the plain white cake with buttercream filling. By like, I mean love it. I had a Costco cake at my high school graduation party 10 years ago, and I still think about it 😉

Where’s the pink champagne cake? I know they used to make it. My sister had a 3 tier cake from some baker and also ordered a couple costco sheet cakes. I second the white cake with cheesecake mousse and buttercream frosting.

Hmmmm. I had no idea this cheesecake mousse was so good! It sounded so strange to me. We were thinking strawberry mousse even though i’m not a fan. But since I’M ordering the cake, I can do whatever I want.
So now I’m thinking
a) chocolate cake+chocolate mousse+buttercream
b) Carrot cake+apricot mousse+cream cheese buttercream
c) vanilla cake+cheesecake mousse (or strawberry??)+buttercream
Thanks! Glad to hear the cheesecake filling was so good, I’m definitekly thinking it’s the way to go after everyoen said it was so good!
I haven’t heard of this pink champagne cake. I’ll bring it up when I meet with them Sunday

haha! I tried the cheesecake filling and while I thought it was good, I felt it was really dense and heavy for a hot summery night. My BM and I really liked the strawberry mousse. It actually had strawberries in it! Light and fluffy, too. It seemed like it’d keep the cake moist.
It was $18.99 for a half sheet of the carrot cake and $17.99 for a half sheet of the chocolate and white cakes. We’ll end up with about 150 servings of cake, which are regular slices. We’ll make ’em smaller b/c we’re cake fat kids.

LoL that’s ok, thanks for letting me know it’s going to go over well! As long as the place doesn’t cut it like 2 hours early. That’s a no-no.
I’ve gotten some comments from people who think i *have* to have my cake done at the more upscale bakeries in town, like Costco is some white trash place or something. Well, $500 for cake is just too much for me. Plus, who’s ever had super scrumptous wedding cake anyways?! Costco cake is always super way delicious. I want to actually be able to eat any leftovers, l.
For about $60, you just can’t beat Costco…i love that I saved like $400, even after ordering a cute little cake for us to cut from a fancy bakery.

It sounds SO tasty. We’re having carrot cake which is awesome (plus 2 other flavors yet to be decided). Isn’t this the best hardest decision?!

Ooo we are considering Costco for our cake too! I LOVE the cheesecake filling, but see that you may find it heavy for a sumemr night. If I get a Costco cake, we are definitely doing the ceram cheese!
