Does Safeway have custom cakes ready-to-go?

When you place an order for Safeway’s pre-made cakes, the bakers only need to add your requested designs to the cake and package it for pickup. This should take a few hours, but your order will be ready within 24 hours. If you ask them to bake you a cake from scratch, this could take longer.

The price of Safeway’s custom cakes depends on the size you want and the designs you choose. But the average prices for Safeway custom cakes are as shown below. Note that these prices may change subsequently as Safeway holds the right to update product prices:

  • Plain round or ⅛ slab cakes $18.99
  • ⅛ sheet cakes $35.99
  • ½ sheet cakes –  $45.99
  • Full sheet cakes $64.99

Safeway has varieties of flavors and fillings to choose from, including Vanilla buttercream, German chocolate, Apple and cherry fillings, Artesana cream and more. If you don’t find the fillings you like on the website, you can call or visit the store to discuss the possibility of getting it.

Safeway can also put pictures of celebrants on cakes. So if you need one printed on your cake, you’ll have to bring the photo to the store and place your order. Preferably, go along with a hard copy and not photos saved on your phone. 

Does Safeway sell custom cakes online?

You can place orders for Safeway custom cakes online. But you’d have to visit the physical stores to pick up your cake. Although Safeway doesn’t say why there’s no joke delivery option for custom cakes on its website, one likely reason is to prevent damages. 

Your cake could easily get smudged or ruined inside a hot bag, especially if your DoorDash driver is reckless. So it’s best to pick it up yourself at the store.

Although Safeway can’t deliver custom cakes to your apartment, you can order pre-made cakes from the regular cake section on the website. Those cakes are eligible for both home delivery and curbside pickup. On the other hand, custom cakes are under the “Order Ahead” tab on the website.

Step #1: Call a Safeway store
