We have to do ours through our venue, but I was all about this as an option before we chose our place.

My sister got hers from Costco- $250 to feed 175 people and it was very good.  THe fondant work was ehhhh, but if you have a simple design I would do it!

Do you have Safeway by you? They still make everything in store from scratch like a true bakery.

I had Publix cake at my shower and it was delicious. As long as you are ok with buttercream and a simpler design I think its a good option.

Publix has the BEST tasting cake – we would’ve gone with them if we hadn’t had a family friend make our cake for us 🙂

The Sobey’s (Canadian grocery store) by my house makes THE BEST banana chocolate cake and would LOVE to have that @ a wedding!  As long as you test the cake beforehand, I’d say, go for it!

(ps – the high priced bakeries are putting the exact same ingrediants in your cake as the grocery store will)

This is the cake I chose from Hy-Vee for our wedding. for 100 people, this is running me right at about 300.00. We just went with chocolate/vanilla marble . Those are gumpaste flowers. They told me I could go with real flowers instead and that would knock about $40 off the price.

My cousin had a grocery store cake at his wedding.  I believe it was from Wegmans and was less than $200… It wasn’t anything spectacular, but it tasted good (honestly, it was fresher and more moist than many bakery wedding cakes I’ve had) and it was decorated nicely with buttercream roses.  

The only sort of crappy thing was that it was either dropped off by a delivery person, or someone went to pick it up from the store, and it came with each tier in a separate box.  At any rate, no one from the store was there to set it up at the reception, so it did end up looking a little wonky because it wasn’t put together quite right.

Costco has delicious cakes. That’s where we usually go for birthday cake or other events. Only problem is that the sheet cakes are Big so you need alot of people!

We plan to have safeway sheet cake. Its delish! and way cheaper and at the end of the day i could care less about my wedding cake. does that sound bad? I would rather invite more people than have a beautiful $800 cake ( we have 226 guestlist)

I’m not into the Safeway cakes as much as some others.  We have Winco and that is the best for grocery store cakes.  Costco is good, if I chose sheet cakes I would have a small cake made for cutting.  Just my opinion.
