How much does Sam's/Costco sell a sheet cake for these days? They are closed and I need to know the average cost. I have never bought one before (nor plan to) but want to get an idea. I am near Dallas, Tx.

Thanks
Stephanie

In MN, a "half sheet" (serves 36-48 ) is $19.87. A "full sheet" (serves 72-96) is $34.87.

EDIT: sorry, this is for Sam's Club. forgot to specify that.

Keep in mind that these prices are for loss leaders, so they don't expect to make anything on those cakes. They use them to lure you into the bakery, where they hope that you'll buy more stuff while you're hanging around smelling the bread.

Same price for Costco as the Sam's price.

My local grocery store's bakery allows me to buy cakes. 1/2 sheet is $16.49 even though they told me on the phone that it was $21.49, so I bought one choc. and one yellow. It saved me so much time, and they were really good!

I shop at Sam's and live in Fort Worth and if you go back to the bakery and ask them, they will sell you a box of 4 frozen 1/2 sheet cakes (chocolate or vanilla only) and it only cost me $18.00. They are individually packaged and pretty level. It really saved me a lot of time baking and freezing my own. And seriously it averages less than $5.00 a cake. I can't even make my own that cheap!! If you are a die hard fan of "from scratch" this won't work...but it's great for neighbors, family and friends.
If you buy one of theirs already decorated it costs around $19-$22.
Hope this helps.
