I have discovered that McCalls sells cakes to order. I need a 18" carrot, 14" chocolate and 8" vanilla. Has anyone ever bought a cake from here and used for a wedding order? Wondering if I should try this or not. Sure would save a lot of prep and baking time.

Thanks for any suggestions on this.

I personally wouldn't, because I've worked hard developing my recipes and it's very important to me that my cakes are MY cakes.

However, if you have tasted their cakes and they taste good, then I see no problem with it (unless you have already done a tasting with the bride using YOUR cake and then use these instead--if the bride has hired you based on your baking, you should really do it on your own).

NOPE if I don't mix and bake it, I don't/won't use it.

Anyone that gets sick will sue you, not the 'McCalls' place.

True, but that can apply to anything. If you eggs are bad, they customer will sue you for a bad cake, not the egg company. You, of course, would deal with the egg company.
