I don’t know about their quality but Costco AND Publix are quite nice. Hope someone can give you a good opinion on the others.

I always read about some wonderful cakes from Costco, etc. I would just go and buy a small cake from the store you would like to order from to make sure you like the taste. As long as it tastes great, it will be a great choice for you!

I would love to go with the little grocery store in our small town because they have an AMAZING red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting!!  I would definitely consider it!

My dad ALWAYS buys the cakes from Costco for any big family event.  They are really good and they can make them look really really nice.

Costco and Sam’s Club have great tasting cakes. So does our local supermarket. You should definitely look into tasting a cake from your local supermarket. If it tastes good, you should go for it!

We are doing a grocery store cake, we picked the design we wanted while saving over $600.  We got to taste everthing first so we know exactly what we are getting.

Oh man Publix has gorgeous cakes! Why aren’t they in Maryland? Cry

Publix is freaking awesome! Their prices were a little too high for me down here though, but SOOO TASTY! Also… you can choose four samples and they’re basically 1/4 of a cake each! YUM!

But since you don’t have a publix… I’d just have them do a tasting for you at whichever places you think would be best, then go from there (what kind of decoration can they do? Ever been on Cake Wrecks? etc)

Walmart has some great cakes. The only comment I would add is that some of the decor is a bit 80’s, but you should be able to order your cake without all of the extra decorations and maybe add some flowers or ribbon yourself. Also, their cakes taste good (always a plus).

The best wedding cake I have ever had was from a grocery store. Some grocery store bakeries make wonderful cakes and others are not so good. Go with whichever you think has the best taste and price. Guests will remember if the cake was good or bad before they remember what it looks like.

That said, I personally don’t care for Safeway as they tend to be dry (at least the ones I’ve had) but Walmart cakes are delicious.

Walmart and Costco are from the same company

Same company=same icing=same cake. So uh, I’d go with a tiered Walmart cake. Nobody’ll know unless you tell them. People just like cake =]

I had Costco cake. But i had sheet cakes.
