Wow! That is wonderful! I am going to buy boxes of Walmart sheet cakes, (at Sam's) and cut my cakes from them!! Do you think that is what they sell at BakeMark? I am super excited, now I just have to take all the flavors off my website, except for white, chocolate, yellow, and marble. This is going to really save some time, and my cakes will be so MOIST!

Try a slice in the microwave! You get a warm and moist slice of cake, that tastes of yellow.

Nothing tastes as good as yellow feels.

Thanks Annabakescakes! I am self taught-never took a class.  All I have learned I have learned from youtube or here! I play around and make cakes for friends and family for free to experiment with differnent styles.

I think you have just found the way to save all of us home scratch bakers a ton of time and money!  We should all just buy Walmart cake so that it would be universal! Oh I think Walmart now offers Red Velvet and Confetti in sheet cake now too--so you will have tons of variety!

Thank you Jasmine33!  I feel bad that customers think that Retail chain cake is their only choice so I try to make them look as good as possible!

Really wondering what state you work in? I have had the "privilege" of eating Walmart and other Retail store cakes at various parties where they bought a last min cake filled with plastic toys and while they are not the yummiest things I have ever had to endure, they were not necessarily bitter either.  One bite I believe accelerates your cavities as they are super sweet (hence why kids LOVE them).

YUM!!  Icicng made in a huge factory then squirted into a large bucket, sat on a shelf for who knows how long then brought to your store "fresh"!! I once looked for the expiration on the icing and it lasted for like 5 months after I had got it.  No telling how long it was in the warehouse!  I can only imagine what they put in there---actually I dont want to have nightmares!

It's all the plastic decorations.  Plastic toy cars, plastic picks with Happy Birthday on them, Plastic flowers, anything plastic they can fit on a cake.  Check out Cakewrecks---you will find your fill in Plastic Flotsam pieces!

I'm not a cake snob. Different people have different tastes, different needs, and different budgets.

AI am sure y'all who are making fun off the Walmart cakes see them as a big concurrention. A lot of brides with a small budget prefer a big centerpiece from Walmart (and good tasting) over a tiny ''professional'' cake for the same price!

AI freely admit to being a cake snob. You couldn't pay me to eat cake from Wal-Mart.

Well, I might eat a slice for a couple thou -depending upon how broke I was......

No cake snob here- I've eaten WalMart cakes and lived to tell the tale. They aren't horrid tasting and I'm quite sure the food at McDonalds or any other fast food place is just as packed with chemicals and preservatives. Good heavens, no telling what weird stuff is in pre-made fondant!

 

The real problem for with WalMart for me and many others I suspect, are the low prices and the expectations of customers that they can get those kinds of prices for a custom cake. Most likely, that's the bitterness you're tasting rather than the cake itself.

 

Not defending WalMart, I actually despise them for a number of reasons having nothing to do with cake, but there's a market for low priced cakes. Not everyone can afford $200 birthday cakes. I just wish they'd buy them at their local grocer and understand that a custom, fresh baked cake can't be bought for $15.

I don't think they are concurrent, at all. I make fun of them for being ugly. I would be terribly disappointed in 90% of the designs, and 95% of the execution of the design. I didn't have a ton of money for a cake, so I made my own. Walmart was out of the question.

 

And the fact of the matter is, you cannot get a cake for that little. If you look at their wholesale prices for ingredients, and add labor, they lose money on all but the rarest cake. They use the low prices to lure in customers, who also grab the party plates, flatware, napkins, balloons, ice cream,and hot dogs* and buns. And, better grab some milk, and last minute gifts, cards and wrapping paper, and tape! That is where the money is made.

 

*(which I also never eat, precisely because quality meat isn't that cheap, so it is not quality. If it is not quality, it is lips and anuses, and other disgusting parts.)
