As the holidays are approaching, I wanted to take an opportunity to highlight the capabilities and unique features and of the Safeway bakery department and why it should stand out as your local favorite bakery.
Safeway offers a comprehensive selection of baked goods, cakes, pies, artisan breads, pastries, muffins, donuts, and more through its in-store bakeries. While some of the items are brought in, Safeway bakes most of their bakery items fresh in-store daily.
Safeway offers a full selection of cakes in the bakery which are decorated by talented 5-star cake decorators that are truly cake artists. The Safeway cake artists use freehand decorating skills as well as decoration kits and tools to prepare a variety of high-quality baked items.
The gorgeous bakery cakes truly set Safeway apart from other grocers in terms of design options that are available for pickup any day of the week.
You can customize any cake in a single-layer round cake, stacked round or rectangular sheet cake in a variety of sizes. Bring in a photo from Pinterest or online of your vision for a cake and the Safeway cake artists can work with you to bring your vision to life.
After deciding on a party theme, if you want a unicorn cake, a licensed cake (i.e. Disney, dinosaurs, Trolls, etc.), or a hedgehog cake, Safeway can make it happen.
Photo sheet cakes are also available at most Safeway bakery locations. If you want a special customized cake with a photo of a birthday celebrant, a graduate, or for any celebration, simply bring the photo into your local bakery and the cake artist will work with you to customize your cake.
Safeway Custom Cake Flavors
Safeway’s bakery cakes are available to be customized in five delicious cake flavors plus 13 filling options. You can also select from two icing/frosting flavors to top your cake. Choose either vanilla whipped icing or buttercream frosting.
- Carrot Cake

Cake Filling Options

Safeway cake pricing varies based on the size, design, and intricacy of the custom cake. Cakes start at $9.99. You can also get a free custom smash cake for your baby’s first birthday at Safeway.
The Safeway cake order form and cake catalog are not available online, however, you can call your local Safeway bakery to place an order over the phone. If you are requesting a custom cake, it’s best to stop into your local store and bring a photo to the cake artist so you can fill out an order form in person.
The cake artist will draw a rendering of your vision on the order form, or use your photo as the inspiration for the cake design.
Be prepared to select the cake size, flavor, filling, and icing options while placing your order.
