Safeway is another popular choice for parents who need to order an affordable cake for their child's parties. Safeway employs cake decorators that lovingly decorate their cakes by hand according to your wishes for your party. They have a variety of blank cakes available for off-the-cuff parties, or you can order your custom cake and pick it up on your special day.

For something a little extra special when the price isn't a factor, you might want to consider your local Whole Foods bakery.

These special edition cakes include things like a strawberry chiffon cake, vegan chocolate mousse cake, and even a berry chantilly cake for special occasions.
Regardless of which one of these options you choose to order, whether is a licensed cake or something a little bit more professional, supermarket bakeries are professional and design your cake with an eye for detail. Their cake artists are required to have professional training in cake decorating and cursive writing, so you get a cake that's readable and suits your occasion to a tee.
Walmart, Kroger, and Safeway bakeries all offer licensed cakes with favorite cartoon characters like Elsa, Ariel, Marvel superheroes, and more. Be sure to stop by your local bakery and ask to see the cake catalog or browse it online before ordering for your party. Some local bakeries even offer photo cakes, in which you can bring in a favored photograph and have it laid on top of a cake.
The prices will vary according to the cake customization you want, so consider shopping around and getting quotes from multiple bakeries in your hometown to get the best price for your custom party cake.
