I have sold un-iced cakes to customers who ordered them as such.  They ate them un-iced.

 

I have also had the BakeMark cakes and they aren't any different than what you get by baking a cake mix.  They work much better when you slice the layers and add a pie filling for extra lubrication.

 

But the original post raises some questions:  it is legitimate for people to ask "did you bake this cake",  "do you bake from scratch or from a mix" and you had better be prepared to explain the facts honestly.

 

The list of questions expands for states with cottage food laws.  In such cases, you must label with the list of ingredients which you must accurately derive from the wholeale source of your cake layers.  And most customers who check will see that there are commercial preservatives present.

 

For anybody who is having trouble with the baking, there are adult ed courses in most big cities in the US and Canada as well as at community colleges.  These courses aren't expensive.  They are worthwhile.

If you are a home baker, you will not be able to buy from bakemark or Dawn, who both have pre made cakes.  They only deliver to store locations because of insurance reasons.

 

If you want to go this direction, you can buy them from Sams or you can ask Dawn for a local bakery in your area they deliver to, and ask that bakery if you can latch on to their order and pick up from them.  They might do it for you.

 

Personally, I would bake the cakes and freeze them.  So much more tastier and wider variety of flavors!

I've bought products from Bakemark by picking up at their warehouse (Union City, CA), all they needed to see was a business license.
