It looks a little lopsided

 

Anywho, not sure if you guys have a Costco, but we are getting a really nice cake from them for the the engagement party

We almost ordered a walmart wedding cake but didn’t because the store was too far away and didn’t deliver. I’d do it. Their cakes taste pretty good and they do let you skip on the 80’s decor.

in all honesty – as long as YOU like the design and the flavor, who really would honestly care if it came from wally world? i understand the stigma associated with the store – but will you be announcing to the wedding guests that it’s from walmart?

I say if you like the design and the taste then go for it! we’re not going crazy with ours. hubby is a caterer and his boss makes awesome cakes – but not nearly as awesome as most bakeries…but that’s ok. it’s not high on our priority list at all.

I say go for it!

I say go for it too. I got a cake made at Walmart for my friends baby shower I was hosting and it was awesome! Everyone went on about the flavor.

I decided that I wanted cupcakes rather than a wedding cake for my wedding. The other day I was at Walmart and bought a box of 12 that were pre-made. They looked really cute and were only $5.00 for 12!! My mom and I thought that they were really good! I am going to dress them up a bit with some raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. For your cake you could even get some fresh flowers to add to the base or for the top. Best things is you will save tons of money and no one will know the difference!!

If it looks nice and tastes good nobody is going to care where it came from. One of my friends got her wedding cake from Publix and had her florist put roses on top and around it….nobody knew the difference, and the cake was delicious.

I had a bride order her cake from WM and it was boxed well (for transport) and tasted good. The only downside is the decor it is basic, however you can add flowers and candles to let the table really glow. If you want the cake higher….just rent a stand.

I say go for it.  My favorite cake is actually from our local grocery store.  Sweet cake with a mild, not super sweet icing.

Our cake is being made by a lady who just loves to make wedding cakes.  She’s doing it out of her house and for a fraction of the cost of what bakeries around here charge.

I definitely say go for it as well! Do you have a whole foods nearby?  They have the yummiest cake ever (berry chantilly) and it would make an amazing wedding cake IMO…. Also check around and see if you can find local bakers, they are much less expensive than a traditional one.

So I’m assuming this is a bakery in Walmart at a super center? Wow! That is a good deal. I really can’t afford an expensive cake so I was thinking of having my aunt bake it, who isn’t a professional baker, or get a small 2 tier cake and a large sheet cake…….. It sounds like a good idea. Next time I go to Walmart Super center I will keep my eye out. Thanks for the great advice..

Oh, and where are you getting your cake from? Walmart?

The best wedding cakes I have had came from grocery store bakeries. But not every grocery bakery is identical. I’ve been to quite a few groceries where the standard cakes they sell are inedible (dry, etc). As far as taste and texture, the cakes at Walmart are the best I have had of any grocery bakery. A friend from high school got a wedding cake from the Walmart bakery when she got married a number of years ago and everyone raved about how yummy and moist it was.

Only you can answer that question… are YOU okay with having a cake from Walmart? Maybe check online and see if there are any reviews of the Walmart you are going to.

I don’t know if I personally would trust them, but I am really, really particular and picky!
