there is always someone who is comparing your prices to the local grocery store.  I forget where I'd read  (been several years ago), but that grocery stores like Walmart don't even actually plan on making money through their bakery.  They are there more as an advertisement or a draw to their store.  You buy a birthday cake, where are you going to get the candles, ice cream, paper plates, etc, all the other foods for the party, etc?  Yep, they're thinking you'll get them at...

Good luck *fingers crossed* Let us know how it arrived, if they let you know...
no prob
