I never have, but recently met someone that has. And said it was good. Im sure they would be willing to do a testing for you?

@RM_bee:  My sister had her wedding cake from there.  It was good–I was really surprised!  I don’t recall exactly what it looked like, but I remember it being pretty. 🙂

As if Wal-Mart has wedding cakes! I had no idea. Interesting!

@RM_bee:  They have the same supplier as Sam’s Club and their cakes are pretty good.  We ordered our wedding cake from the local grocery store which is Publix.  Their cakes are extremely popular here in Florida.  We didn’t even order a traditional wedding cake.  We ordered a small round red velvet cake to cut and 48 vanilla and chocolate cupcakes for our guests.

I attended a wedding that had Walmart cake and it was fine. To be honest Costco cake is amazing though. If you are looking to save money try them out, delicious!

Yeah, I vote for Costco. I love their cake. Not heard of Walmart wedding cake!

A coworker of mine had a tiered wedding cake from Wal-Mart.  I guess it tasted fine, however it was the leaning tower of cake!  The thing was so lopsided they were afraid it was going to fall over.  When they picked it up the night before they were told there was nothing the bakery could do about it.  However after the wedding they brought in pictures and Wal-Mart wound up giving them a full refund.

I’d probably go the fake display cake with sheet cake route if I went with Wal-Mart.

At my first wedding we had Sam’s Club cupcakes that were fantastic.

And Costo cake is amazing!

We are doing a walmart cake.. but, we are using a separated tier cake stand, so we won’t get that wobbly effect the PP mentioned.

Also, if you decide to go with them, I would go with a very easy design [less chance for them to mess it up], we are doing ruffles & sugar dusted.

My sister got her wedding cake from Walmart.  You would have never known.  It was actually quite gorgous and yummy.  They were very willing to customize it for her.

Each store has their own cake decorator.  Be sure to see pictures of what that specific store has produced and not just a general cake book.  Go in and look in their bakery cases too. I’ll give you a good idea of what that decorator is capable of.  I wouldn’t ask them to do something really outside of what they regularly do because you’re taking a chance of it not looking the way you envision it.  

 

Personally I like cakes from Hi-ve and the price point is similar.  If you have one nearby I’d check them out.

@Treejewel19:  YES!  Costco cake is amazing!

I’ve never had it at a wedding but we always get it for birthdays.  Yum!

I love Costco cake!  However, they don’t do traditional tiered wedding cakes like Walmart does.  You can get sheet cakes decorated with somewhat wedding-y styles, but it is still sheet cake (awesome sheet cake!) and not a tiered cake.  So depends on if you really want a tiered cake or not.

Our Walmart does wedding cakes and they looked nice.  They are limited on flavors (I think ours only does white and one type of filling).  I haven’t tasted but the photos look just as nice as a lot of cakes I’ve seen.
