I think if you can then do! We had a taster of cake from a traditional wedding cake maker but unfortunately it wasn’t anything special. So we are getting ours from Marks and Spencer. Guaranteed to be nice!

If your venue allows outside cakes (ours doesn’t), I’d say go for it! But I really like Wal-Mart sheetcakes.

I really like Wal mart cakes. They’re so light! I say go for it.

I love Costco cakes! I hadn’t considered using Costco for my wedding cake, but maybe I will!

I say sure, I would cover it in fresh (food-safe) flowers.

Usually people on here dislike Walmart cakes so I’m surprised at these responses lol. But I love Walmart cake!!

One compromise is to have a small, professionally built cake, and then have sheets from Costco in the kitchen, where pieces are cut from.

Walmart Vanilla Bean cake. They only sale it by the slice, and I may or may not get said slices at least once a week lol I’d say go for it!

There is something about supermarket cakes that are so delicious.  I’m not a fan of yellow cake, unless its made from a supermarket bakery, then I can’t get enough!

I originally considered this but as you mentioned, it will be one more (delicate) task to have someone go and pick it up, decorate it, etc.  We ended up going to a professional baker.  It will cost us several hundred dollars more but your cake will be on display… is it really something you want to chance?

If it’s cost you are worried about why not only have one tier real cake and the rest styofoam with a sheet cake to be cut. This is what we are doing, and we don’t have to worry about picking it up and decorating it.
