Target bakery cupcake cakes are very popular options. These types of Target cakes come in white, chocolate and mixed flavors with your choice of white, chocolate, whipped or cream cheese icing. The cupcake cakes offered by Target are pull-apart designs, meaning that the cupcakes are arranged into the shape of a traditional cake and then separated when it’s time to eat.
Target Birthday Cakes
Target birthday cakes come with free personalization. You can choose to have the icing decorations done on your Target birthday cake in a specific color. You can also give the bakery a custom message to write on the cake in matching icing.
For Target birthday cakes for kids, you can opt for one of the Target character cake designs. These types of Target cakes include familiar characters from movies, TV shows, and other media that kids enjoy. The Target cake designs vary from store to store but, generally, you’ll find Disney, Nickelodeon, DC and Marvel character options at most Target bakeries.
See the Target bakery birthday cakes price list above for info about the cost of the standard and character designs. If you’re purchasing a first birthday cake for a 1-year-old, be sure to ask about the free smash cake that Target provides for your little one to eat with his or her fingers. For even more character cakes, check out the Kroger birthday cakes.
Target Graduation Cakes
While the Target bakery typically does not have any special designs for graduation cakes, you can have one of their standard cakes customized for the occasion. Graduation cakes are usually decorated in the graduate’s school colors. A greeting like “Congrats” or the student’s year of graduation can be added to the cake at no extra charge.
Target Baby Shower Cakes
If you’re planning a baby shower, you can purchase a standard cake from the Target bakery for the occasion. Normally, light pink, light blue or light yellow icing is used to decorate a baby shower cake from Target. You can also ask the bakery to write a message for the expectant mother in the middle of the cake. Or you can have the message “Welcome Baby” printed on one of the classic Target cakes.
Target Wedding Cakes
Target wedding cakes would consist only of the basic round and sheet cake options. Unlike Baskin-Robbins wedding cakes, Target cakes do not come in two or three tiers. If you are looking for a more formal wedding cake and wish to buy from Target, you could purchase a cake stand with multiple tiers and then fill it with 8-inch round Target cakes. Some people also use sheet cakes for weddings.
If you opt for a round or sheet cake from Target for your wedding reception, you can buy a wedding cake topper from the store to add to your cake. You’ll find dozens of Target wedding decorations for cakes to choose from in Target stores.
