Commenting to follow! I love Publix cake and just learned last week that they make wedding cakes, haha. I saw a few of their cakes in the $400-500 range? But I guess it also depends how big the cake is and how many people need to be served.

This was my publix cake, it had raspberry layered in, it was a huge hit. They delivered it and set it up and everything. I just checked my spreadsheet and it was $410. We had about 140 people at our wedding.

oh my gosh! I miss Publix cakes! I would have loved to do it for my wedding. But we are in Chicago. Just wanted to say that you are making a great choice! (sorry nothing to add)

  • Wedding: St. petersburg, FL

I am definitely following this thread… 

We’re getting married in FL (St. Pete) and will be using Publix. Since it’s a destination wedding for us, we are doing a few weird things and Publix has been super accomodating to all of my weirdness. 

So we will be doing a 7″ round cake for us to cut that’s a traditional wedding cake… but it’s a carrot cake. This little cake was still about $90 just for 16 servings of it. 

Then, we will do two separate 1/2 sheet cakes that are decorated like wedding cakes but not… and they are so much cheaper than “wedding” cakes. Each of those feed about 40 people and cost about $60. 

cake 1: vanilla w/ raspberry filling and buttercream frosting

cake 2: marble w/ cannoli filling and buttercream frosting

Finally, we will do about 10 of their key lime pies to supplement and just give us a little something extra. Those are $8.99 each. 

So basically we are going to still spend about $375 to include the cakes and delivery/set up. 

Their wedding cakes look amazing and probably taste delicious (that’s what i’ve heard), but all in all didn’t seem to be that much less expensive than a local baker we found. It made more sense for the variety that we wanted. The local baker we would have gone with for a traditional cake would have done the beautiful geometric design I originally wanted, but we changed our minds. We aren’t getting married until May though, so I can’t share a pic. I will update when I can though. 🙂

I’ve been to weddings where Publix cakes are served and nobody can tell it’s not a high-dollar swanky designer wedding cake. In fact, their cakes are delicious and people will probably just be happy to have a good-tasting cake, not one that’s been sitting in the bakery being decorated over the course of two days and covered in fondant :\

noleita :  that looks homemade, I bet it was very good knowing Publix. Are their formal wedding cakes with icing, priced much higher?
