Anyone ever used Sam's Club to get a birthday cake?

Our DD is about to turn 2! Ahhhhhh!!!! And my sister was going to buy her this really nice birthday cake, but she was laid off and I told her not to worry about it. I am now looking for a cheaper cake that can do the Disney Princess design. I found a really cute one at Sam's Club, but I am just wondering how good it will be. It is the right price and really adorable, but I just want to know it will taste good!

Anyone who has had one before, let me know! Or give me other ideas!! Her birthday is right around the corner!

I've had a Sams Club cake before, and it was good. They are really similar to Costco cakes imo. We've actually had cakes from Walmart before that have been fabulous, don't know if they are the same as the Sams cakes (being it is the same company), but I've had all 3 I mentioned here and they are all good.

We've had one and it was very good. Granted I was 7 months pregnant at the time so anything was good to me, but that cake was great!

I wanted to use Costco, but they don't have the Disney Princess one. They just have some random princess no one has ever heard of before! And that definitely wont fly with my DD!

The cake I like is a sheet cake with cupcakes all around it. It is really cute.

Sam's Club has very good cakes--I get almost all of our cakes from there. Happy Birthday to your little one!

They are excellent, you won't be disappointed. I've gotten all our cakes there for years now. We like the whipped frosting better then the butter cream. Though I was at a graduation this past June and the butter cream was rather tasty. You can't beat the price either ! Lisa

We LOVE cakes from Sam's

Ordering is easy, but we usually just go pick one out from the many they have there ready to go.

IMO everything Sams does is of good quality and the cakes are no exceptions. That's the reason that we are members. FWIW Walmart cakes are really good too.

We used Sam's for our kids' Baptism and were very pleased. If you saw the design and you liked it, I wouldn't be too worried that it would look and taste good. But if you want to feed your fears, then you can check out cakewrecks.blogspot.com and see how bad it could really be. Only do this if you are looking for something to worry about though! It is a hilarious blog otherwise!

The Sam's bakery is the same as a WalMart bakery (same things, same recipes, etc.) -- and is very, very good.

I've never had a Sam's cake but someone above said that they are like Costco's - Costco cakes are bomb-diggity, and they are really inexpensive.

I've had several from Sams Club and everyone has been great. I like the whipped icing best The butter creme is also very good.

In our area we get free birthday candles with the cake. Pick them up at the bakery.
