Grocery Store wedding cake?
Posted: Jun 20, 2006 9:21 PM

Is anyone getting their wedding cake through a grocery store? My FH wants to get one through Albertson's or Tom Thumb but I'm having doubts. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

My friend did this for her wedding.  The cake was not her priority.  She was on a very tight budget.  I actually paid for the cake as a wedding gift to the couple.  I let she just pick out what she wanted and ordered it herself and just handed them the cash so they could have someone pick it up.

The cake was exactly what she wanted and she was very happy with it.  Her wedding was for 60 people and she had a huge amount left over to take home even after cutting very large slices.  It also did taste very good.  It had simple plain frosting between the layers and two layers per tier not three. It was by no means elaborate or as elegant as what a professional bakery that specializes in wedding cakes would make, but I do think if the fresh flowers look had been the rage at the time it would have been even prettier and perhaps just like some of the specialists.

When it came down to it it was a great way to save.  I am sure she could have it requested some other options for fillings etc, if she had wished, but she does like things simple.

 Another good way to save on a cake is to have a local cake lady make one.  If you don't know anyone who does it just stake out the local craft store just before or after the cake decorating classes and see if the teacher will do it or if she knows anyone who will.  Also try calling any local church, usually someone their will know a good cake lady and they can be really good and save a bundle.  Also make sure to be specific as to if you like the frosting very sweet or less sweet as it is as simple as a dash of salt when mixing.

I looked into getting one from Jewel, which is owned by Alberstsons but it wasn't really that much less expensive. I thought it would be a more substantial savings but it wasn't, and they didn't deliver.  I would do it to save money but if it doesn't save money I would elsewhere.

My sister got one at Albertsons and it was very pretty and it was actually good. Some of them i have seen displayed in the store are really nice. I was planning on doing the same thing but like poppy said it ended up not being that much cheaper in the long run. I am sure compared to some places it is waaayy cheaper but most of the places i looked at it wasnt much cheaper. Delivery and set up of the cake is also a concern. I had to pick up the one for my sister at Albertsons and drive it to the location, carry it into the location and someone has to set it up. I was so worried doing all of that for her that i would destroy her cake before i got to the church. I am glad i dont have to worry about that on my big day.

In my area Publix wedding cakes are just the same quality if not better quality and better tasting than any custom cake baker I have tried. We are going with Publix and getting the exact same cake for 1/2 the price of a custom cake baker.

Here is the name of the place where i am getting my cakes. She was at the Ft Worth bridal show and her cakes were wonderful there and they were wonderful when we did our cake tasting. And i really liked her. I dont know anyone else who has used her so i am going on my instinct. Her prices seem to be pretty good so you might want to check her out. The website is www.treatmesweet-cakes.com.

Dear Carolyn,

Nice of you to stop by, but note that this thread is over 4 years old.
