I’m planning to order a sheet cake from Costco. I’m going to pick it up the day before the wedding and bring it to my caterer, who will bring it to the venue for us. I’ve never heard of ordering a tiered cake from a grocery store, though — do they do that? Could your caterer help set it up?

Grocery stores generally do not deliver. If you want the cake tiered/stacked, you need to order from a specialty wedding bakery. It’s a procedure that takes years of practice to get it right so the cake doesn’t fall over. If you are assembling your own, then cascading tiers (various heights on a secure platform such as a sturdy box that is hidden under cloth, etc) are your best bet and doesn’t require any prior expertise.

I would keep looking at bakeries in your area. Ask friends, family, anyone you know for suggestions. I looked at grocery store cakes and found a bakery that was only $50 more than the  grocery store cake. And the bakery cake is phenomenal!!! We go ther every few months to get some cake 🙂

Our local WalMart and Acme do stacked cakes–id check around with your local pricey grocers.

Making something and offering the delivery service of said product are two different things. Ask them if they deliver before you get your heart set on a grocery cake.

OP, I’m not sure where you’re at, but if you have a Publix in your area, you might want to check with them. My friend got her cake from them and they delivered. And it was delicious!
