DO NOT BUY WEDDING CAKES FROM WAL-MART please dont ruin that special occasion!!!! - Page 4

post #46 of 111
I decorate cakes at Walmart, so I find some of you rude. I'm not allowed to refuse orders. Which means I have to make 10 to a 11 cakes on a busy day. With time many Walmart decorators can make beautiful cakes.

And I've tasted Walmarts cakes. They taste good to me, better than boxed. They stay moist for a very long time.

I'm not a fan of Walmart but you have to realize that the workers of Walmart do not control how Walmart runs or products.

Which is exactly why you shouldn't take negative comments about Walmart personally.

Do you have any pictures you can upload of these beautiful cakes?

No, How would I have the ability to get all of the pictures from all the stores?

And I'm saying that don't label someone as being horrible at cakes because they work retail.

And, yes. Exactly why I won't let a Walmart or other grocery store cake pass the lips of anyone I care about. Anything that stays,uh, "MOIST" for a very long time is not made of anything resembling real food.

Let's not get mean here, I'm sure there are lots of people who work retail for cake decorating and put a lot of effort into EVERY single order (even when the orders total 10 per day!), and there are people who are tired and just want to get it done as quick as possible, and over with. The latter are the cakes that end up on cake wrecks.

Um, I have worked at 3 grocery store bakeries, and I didn't suck at it. But I was slow, too. So, I never said they did.

 

Are you saying you haven't actually seen one, odds are there has to be a beautiful cake done at Walmart? I just thought that since you work at one, and I am sure you have a cell phone, I figured you may have seen a nice looking cake at your store and taken a picture.

Not allowed to have our phones on us. My store doesn't have luck with cake decoraters... There has been 5 since I've worked there.

There was one that worked for a few months. But I took pictures of her cakes.... and I'm pretty sure she learned outside of work.

MOIST!!!!   HAHAHA

 

In other news....

 

I work at a chain decorating cakes kinda like Walmart and I can safely say I would NEVER buy or allow anyone I know buy a cake from a retail store.  There's nothing against the workers.  Those cakes are for people who need a cake NOW and were to lazy to order ahead or those who think $35.00 is a lot of money for a 1/2 sheet.  The cakes come in frozen in a huge full sheet slab.  Not sure how long they have been at the warehouse but I honestly don't wanna know.  Then they grab a bucket of pre-colored (not sure how old the icing) and slap on them. Any given weekend I make 20-25 cakes by myself plus do other things. I can't say every cake I toss out is amazing but I do try my best to make them decent.  Here is a few that I have done at a retail bakery:

Just because I'm curious... How much does the cake in the first picture cost?

It was 2- 8" double layer rounds for a whopping $65.00 I believe....

The top tier on the first cake looks bigger than the bottom tier , it's probably the same size but it looks alittle weird. Jmo.

Yea it's the angle I took the pic.  They are the same yummy frozen size!

You can't say "I'm not allowed to refuse orders and have to get 10-11 done in just a few hours no matter what" and then expect people to not knock the cakes! We're hating the game, not the player.

If I had to order a cake from a retail chain, and ended up with any one of these cakes, I would breathe a HUGE sigh of relief!
