Did anyone get a Costco/Sam's/ or BJ's wedding cake?

@DogMommy:  Most of the weddings I have attended that used Costco cake had a small designer cake made for the cutting and then Costco sheet cakes in the back to serve. Costco cakes are DELICIOUS and very affordable.

@DogMommy:  I’ve never had a Costco wedding cake but I get ALL my birthday cakes there by choice because they have THE BEST cake ever. It’s SOO good! I’d get a Costco wedding cake in a heartbeat!

@DogMommy:  I went to a bar mitzvah with a small fondant cake that was so pretty and SO YUMMY. I sent an email to the hosts asking where the cake was from and it turns out the guests all had sheetcake from Costco and the fondant cake was just for show. 

Costco cake is soooo delish! The one I had was vanilla cake with vanilla frosting, and so so so good. They should have no shame in getting a costco cake – the guests will think it’s yummy, I promise.

I make countless wedding cakes for people (big elaborate tiered cakes) and IMO, a Costco cake is a GREAT option. I mean sure you’re limited on your flavour selection, and they won’t make a tiered cake.. But everyone who likes cake, loves Costco cake. Plus, after the cake is cut, it’s usually brought into the kitchen and often times sheet cakes are used if the tiered cake isn’t big enough to serve all the guests. 

Personally I don’t like cake, and I didn’t have one at my wedding. But I would have no problem with a Costco cake at a wedding, if I liked cake – as a guest I’d be very happy.

@DogMommy:  Not directly a Sam’s Club cake, but while we’re at it, Walmart is in the same family.

I paid $125 for a Walmart cake that was to feed 134 people. It worked out beautifully. Transporting it was dead simple. I used scissors to cut away part of the box, and then it easily slid out on its own, ready to go.

Bakeries around here, for a similar-sized cake, would have cost about $400 minimum. Cake appearance was nice enough, and the taste was better than most wedding cakes.

@DogMommy:  I’ve got to add that the bar mitzvah I went to was full of snobby adults, as is common in my parents’ circle (haha). The mom initially just gave me the name of the bakery the pretty fondant cake was from, but then realized I would order from them and confessed it was a costco cake that we ate. No one had any idea!

If someone can make this couple a small pretty cake to cut into, they can have the look of a designer cake but actually feed their guests cake from Costco.

Haven’t had it for a wedding, but I love Costco cake.  Have had it several times and it is always delish.  I would have had it for our wedding but the logistics didn’t work out for us.
