That is so crazy!  Even in NYC, I can buy a red velvet cake for $30!

Grocery store buttercream will be a bit whiter than homemade cream cheese frosting. I swear I remember cc frosting being an option at Safeway though and not too expensive. 

Eta: they use cc on cinnamon bins and carrot cake so they would definitely have it.

@stargurl101: hmm. Bummer. I thought for sure Safeway was national.
