Giant Eagle Cake Types & Designs
Giant Eagle cakes come in simple designs, which you can then easily customize to suit the occassion. You can purchase round and sheet cakes in four different styles:
– Single Layer. With these cakes, you’ll get one layer of cake in your choice of white almond, traditional white, yellow, marble, chocolate or red velvet with white whipped, chocolate whipped, white buttercream or chocolate buttercream on top.
– Split Layer with Icing. This type of cake is a single layer that is cut in half. Icing in the flavor of your choosing is put between the two sections of cake. These cakes come with the same icing and flavor options as the single layer.
– Split Layer with Filling. This cake is identical to the split layer with icing but instead of icing in between the two half layers, it features Bavarian cream, lemon, fresh strawberry, apricot, raspberry or apple raspberry filling.
– Cassata. The cassata cake is a Giant Eagle specialty. An Italian dessert, the layers are made from a very dense sponge cake that is soaked in Bavarian cream. You can purchase this cake with fresh strawberries in between the layers, icing between the layers or as a single layer cake.
All of the custom cakes include free icing balloon or flower decorations and a greeting of up to 35 characters. For a full sheet cake, you can have a message of up to 70 characters. The prices for decorated Giant Eagle cakes are shown above on the table in the round and sheet cake sections.
Giant Eagle Birthday Cake
Giant Eagle birthday cakes can be ordered for the prices shown in the top two sections of the price list with custom greetings and the flavors of your choosing, but you can also choose from a number of specialty cake designs.
You can also opt for one of Giant Eagle’s licensed cake designs. Giant Eagle themed cakes may change from time to time, the include newer popular designs. You can contact your local Giant Eagle bakery to see what Giant Eagle themed birthday cake options they have. Giant Eagle bakeries usually include licensed cakes which feature:

Just like Target birthday cakes, Giant Eagle licensed and specialty designs cost more than the base prices for the decorated cakes because they feature more elaborate icing effects and plastic decorations. The Giant Eagle Special Occasion Cakes section of the price chart shows the starting price of the licensed and specialty cakes.
Giant Eagle Graduation Cake
For graduation parties, you can order a standard decorated Giant Eagle cake and have the graduate’s name added to the design. You can personalize the cake by requesting cake decorations, such as flowers or balloons, in the colors of the graduate’s school. For an additional fee, you can add graduation cake toppers, such as plastic graduation caps, to the base cake design.
In addition to the design-it-yourself option, you have the option to choose the Giant Eagle two-tier graduate cake. This clever cake looks like two textbooks stacked one atop the other. The colors of the books can be customized to match school colors, and the spines of the books can be personalized with subjects you specify. Plastic decorations are also included.
Pricing on this cake depends upon size. Refer to the special occasion cake section above for base pricing and check out the participating locations to choose your graduation cake.
Giant Eagle Baby Shower Cake
For a baby shower, you can order any of the Giant Eagle round or sheet cakes and have a personalized message for the mother-to-be written on it. Pricing will be the same as the starting Giant Eagle cake prices shown above.
For something extra special, you can choose the Baby Booties cake, which comes in blue for boys and pink for girls. This Giant Eagle cake design is offered in all three sheet cake sizes and features icing roses and a pair of plastic baby booties. There is room in the middle to add a greeting. The cost of this cake is usually the same as the starting Giant Eagle cake prices shown above.
If you want a more original and practical dessert, opt for Sam’s Club baby shower cupcake cakes.
