I’m not sure if you’re asking for a good location, or a good flavor, etc? I don’t live in the ATL area, but I love Publix cakes, and I’m going to have one as my cake! I highly recommend the almond flavor cake, it is so delish! Get a sample!

I have heard about an specific Publix being better over another-but I will tell you I recently had one and it was the best wedding cake I’ve had in a long time

I’d love to see some pictures of Publix wedding cakes from actual brides, i.e. not advertisements. This idea intrigues me! :p

I love it! If there was a Publix in the Midwest, I would definitely do this. I’ve always thought Publix cakes were really yummy and well-decorated. If you end up doing this, please post pictures!!

Hopefully this upload will work. This is the cake from the wedding I was talking about.  I’m not sure what the cake was, but it had a raspberry filling and it was sooo good!!

 

If the picture doesn’t work-PM me with your email and I’ll email it to you

@Happy- Just sent you a PM.

There’s a cake in the most recent knot magazine that I think would work great with a publix cake. (I think that’s where I saw it. It’s hard keeping those mags apart… lol) It was white, plain, but had a bunch of multicolored fresh ranunculus blooms around the bottom and put on one of the layers. I need to find that picture!

Another thing that I think could work (maybe?!) with a publix cake is my all-time-favorite inspiration cake. It’s hard to tell from the photos, I think, but it’s just buttercream covered in those clear sugar/sprinkle things.

I did a tasting with the Publix in Alpharetta on State Bridge Road. The consultant was helpful (even if she did seem to play to our needs/wants a little too much) and the tasting experience was great. You might want to find a publix close to your venue because they charge for delivery based on distance. (My delivery from Alpharetta to Norcross will be about $40-$50.) They bake their cakes the day before and then deliver to your site. If you want flowers on top (like fiftyfootbride is talking about) that are live, you have to supply them and you/someone in your wedding/your coordinator will have to place them. Publix just doesn’t want to be held responsible for anything potentially toxic from flowers. Same goes for non-floral cake toppers — if it’s not made out of sugar by publix they won’t place it on there.

Otherwise, the cake was delicious and moist. The strawberry filling was made with REAL strawberries (and didn’t taste sugary sweet). You can select four flavor (cake/filling/icing) combos for your tasting. I would highly recommend them.

We ended up using Publix near Peachtree Battle for our wedding cake and it was wonderful. They were willing to work with us on our design and delivered with no problems. We ended up doing a yellow cake with a chocolate fudge filling for 2 tiers and cannoli filling for 2 tiers.

The flowers for my cake were done by my decorator as Publix will not place flowers, but overall the experience was great.

Well played, Publix, well played! That looks really pretty. 🙂

I don’t have any photos (or at least not that I can find at the moment) but I have a friend whose mom is a Publix decorator, so obviously she used Publix for her wedding cake….and it was beautiful and tasty!

We are having a Publix wedding cake also-Raspberry Elegance-super delicious with cream cheese frosting that is pearlized and looks all swirly all over (FI says it looks like a brain). Very good, I highly recommend! Our Publix is 30 minutes away and was going to charge $50 for delivery-we are doing a fully decorated sheet cake, so my parents offered to go and get it instead of paying for delivery. Since it is flat and no tiers, I am comfortable with that.

Publix Breathtaking

 

This is the publix cake we like.  We are just going to do the top 3 tiers and then do a grooms cake. 

They have a similar cake that is green but I think I want a white cake with maybe the green piping?

They estimated the cost for the top three tiers to be around $300 plus tax and delivery ($30 if under 10 miles).  We will have to work with caterer to add the flowers.
