My oven broke! I am having baking/decoration withdrawls!!! I think I read on here that Costco sells already baked undecorated cakes... Is this true? If it is where are they? In the frozen section or what? My niece and nephew are having a party this weekend and I would love to decorate their cakes but I can't bake ANYTHING!!! Help!!!

Has anyone ever tried baking a round in their toaster oven? Desperate times call for desperate measures... I so wanted to bake something the other day I almost tried it!

I was told by my Costco that if I wanted a plain, undecorated cake, I needed to order it 24 hours in advance from the bakery. Good luck, I know what it's like when you have the "itch" icon_smile.gif

Speak sweetly to a local relative or a kind neighbour with an awesome oven!

Hope yours gets fixed soon.

You could try Sams, if there is any close to you. They sell 10" rounds and 1/4 sheet, the only thing is they sell them by the case, like 10 of each in each case. I don't know if they sell individually. You could freeze them if they don't.

I have baked a 9 inch round in a toaster oven. In my defense I have an easy bake sized oven. It was a sad day for baking when I moved into my new house. I do though have many other benefits from my living in my little home.

I have a pretty cool toaster oven and I was thinking about trying to bake one in their with 2 or 3 flower nails in the middle so it bakes evenly. What do you think?

Does somebody have the prices for sheet cakes? I'm going to do up a sculpted cake just for my portfolio, so I'd rather not back the cakes if I don't have to.

Costco charges $16.99 for a plain sheet cake. The carrot cake is more expensive but I don't remember how much at this moment. If I get a last minute cake order and I don't have time to bake I will use a Costco sheet cake and go from there.

Is that for a plain uniced full sheet?

At that price the cake is iced with BC (has a border also) but you have to give them 24 hours to get a cake with no decorations, just iced. I have never asked to have it uniced so I am not sure of they will do that.

I just called my Sams and they have the box with 8- 10" round cakes for $14.99 and the box with 4 - 1/2 sheets for $18.00, they have them in vanilla, chocolate and marbled. I hope this helps. I have never bought them but in a family emergency, I might.

I forgot: Sams cakes are not iced.

Sam's sells 10" rounds and 1/2 sheets. The rounds come eight in a box (white, chocolate, or carrot) and the sheets come 4 in a box (white, chocolate, or marble. some areas might have filled cakes, but unlikely). Like costco, you can order a plain iced cake 24 hours in advance.
