I love to decorate but HATE the baking part! Any ideas of large chain stores that sell pre-baked "naked" cakes?
Shop n Save sells them for $5 for a 6 inch round.
I would imagine that sam's sell's them also as they seem to sell everything else. Except they can only get white, chocolate, and marble sheet cakes.
just ask them ... order them ahead of time.
Way back in the olden days, when I was first getting started, I had one month that was a busy month. I went to our local bakery and made arrangements with them for them to bake the cakes for me. I just did it that one month that was so busy for me, but it is an option yoiu can explore.
