I'm looking for somewhere to get a good themed birthday cake for my son't 5th birthday party. He wants a Scooby Doo cake. I've tried Harris Teeter baked goods, and wasn't impressed. Now I'm reluctant to purchase a cake there. I've purchased a cake at Edible Art, which was devine, but very, very expensive - too extravagant for a bunch of 5 year olds who wouldn't appreciate it, anyway. Suggestions would be most appreciated.

The warehouse clubs (Sams, BJs, etc) actually have fairly nice decorated sheet cakes at very reasonable prices. Especially for a bunch of 5 year olds

You might also try a new thread on this topic or a search through old threads ...

Some of the Harris Teeters make their own cakes and some use frozen cakes that they can decorate.

I find that the Harris Teeters that bake their own cakes are actually pretty good.

This may be your least expensive option so I'd suggest you can and ASK if they bake their own cakes.

BJ's has a great selection of kids themes..their cakes are a big hit at my kids parties, but they are the frozen kind, if that matters..Some of my friends order from Super Walmart (the new one in Morrisville)

My son is 11 and almost all of his birthday cakes (or cupcakes) have come from Sam's Club.

You may have not been impressed with the baked goods at Harris Teeter but I'm sure the 5 year olds won't care. We've always gotten our themed "kids" cakes from Wal-Mart.

I agree. It doesn't take much to impress a 5 year old. Try Lowes foods.

Costco. Really. The 5 year old will love anything themed and brightly colored. Who is the cake meant to impress? The parents of the kids, or the kids?

How about an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen or Baskin Robins? They have decorated cakes.
