Shoppers can order birthday cakes from their local Wal-Mart stores with at least 24 hours' notice. A printable order form is available in PDF format at the Wal-Mart website. Customers can take the completed form to the store or discuss the order with an associate.
Sheet cakes, round cakes, cookie cakes and cupcake cakes are available at all Wal-Mart bakeries in a variety of flavors. Customers can choose between butter-cream or whipped frosting and may add a filling, such as strawberry or Bavarian. The bakery can handle most special requests, including multi-tier cakes and style kits, including licensed character designs and hobbies. As of 2015, Wal-Mart does not accept online orders for birthday cakes or other bakery items.
