Walmart Cakes Delivery Options
Because there are so many ways to customize their designs, you cannot order Walmart cakes online the way that you can with some other bakeries.
You can go online and print out a Walmart cake order form to make the ordering process easier. Fill out the form yourself or take it to the Walmart bakery and have them complete it for you. Most locations will also accept Walmart cake orders by phone.
To find the nearest location or the Walmart phone number of the store you would prefer to order your cake from, use the Walmart Store Finder.
Even if you purchase a Walmart wedding design, the store does not provide delivery on any of their cakes. As a result, you will need to arrange to pick up your cake on the day of or day before your celebration.
Many Walmart locations are open 24 hours per day, so arranging pickup is usually relatively easy. You’ll be asked to specify a pickup time when you place your Walmart cakes order.
Walmart asks that cakes be ordered at least 24 hours in advance. More time may be required for Walmart wedding cakes and other specialty items.
