No, they won’t, and it would be shitty of them to say anything negative. It’s free, tasty cake!

I will be doing the same as you! FI is so against fondant it’s not even funny and there is a chain of grocery stores in the south called Publix and they do ahhh-may-zing wedding cakes for relatively cheap! 🙂

Pffft, if anything, people should compliment you on a wonderful choice and not wasting money! Yayy!!

@jb20:  Pshhh. I was going to get our cake from the grocery store too, but then found out they didn’t make the flavor I wanted (they’re limited to vanilla or chocolate). So definitely no judgement here! People probably won’t even wonder where it comes from.

Oh please people are going to complain about things no matter what.

NO ONE will complain about your cake if it is delicious.

For our engagement party, someone got us a sheet cake from ShopRite, and I am not kidding when I say I got compliments about it for WEEKS and people kept asking me where we got it (I didn’t get it! someone else did!) so I think you’ll be fine.

@jb20:  I say go with what works for you! I don’t think it matters where it comes from as long as it tastes good.

I wanted to save money and I would have bought a grocery store cake if I hadn’t found a friend who made the cake for us. She did an amazing job for half the cost of a professional bakery (fondant, gumpaste flowers and all) and nobody knew it wasn’t professional. Many people commented how delicious the cake was.

@jb20:  Who says it’s tacky? Is it going to have the store’s logo on it? If yes, that’s tacky. If not, no one will EVER know.

Grocery stores make some yummy confections. I think it’s really smart of you to go that route.

As long as it looks like a wedidng cake, no one will even notice. And if it’s good, people will be suprised in a goodway.

Just an FYI, though, my cousin use to work in a grocery bakery.  Their cake pans where seriously warped, and they made thier cakes look beautiful and flat by piling on the icing/froasting.  I was not suprised when I found out as their cakes where always 3/4 icing and 1/4 cake.  Since you have tasted, I’m sure your’s would be lovely, but it was definatly a buyer be ware situation when I found that out.

For my first wedding, I went to a large chain in the South for the cake.  Their cakes are absolutely delicious and quite pretty too.  Long story short, they lost the order.  No cake at my wedding.  Hopefully that doesn’t happen to you… I’d just suggest following up close to your date.
