Tesco grocery stores stock a wide range of flavored cakes that are suitable for a variety of occasions. They have a broad appeal due to their diverse decorations, and customers can enjoy them as they celebrate birthdays, baby and wedding showers, anniversaries, graduations, or other festive events. Usually, customers pick up their Tesco cakes at local stores. However, some customers will be fortunate enough to live near a Tesco that offers grocery delivery. Most Tesco cake prices range from £4 to £12. Below, we will talk more about their prices, flavors, designs, etc.

Tesco Cake Designs

Despite the low-cost nature of the Tesco bakery, there is a wide variety of cake designs available to customers. Layer cakes, Madeira cakes, shaped cakes, character cakes, and more make up the range they offer. Some cakes may be personalized with a brief message on the top. There are more than a dozen licensed character cakes as well. Young boys and girls alike will find a favorite character in the Tesco cakes catalog.

Since in the Tesco bakery, you find more than just cakes, it is worth mentioning that traditional cakes are to be found in the Birthday & Celebration Cakes category, as well as in the Large Sharing Cakes one.

Tesco Birthday Cakes

It is common to plan birthday parties for young children with a theme focused on their favorite fictional character. Tesco will not disappoint the customer if this is their plan. Large, yellow Minion cakes are sure to be a hit for parties that need to feed up to 20 people. Smaller gatherings will benefit from cakes that serve up to 14 guests and cost around £8.00.

Character cakes includes characters like My Little Pony, Batman, or Justice League. Parties with 12 or fewer guests will find the celebration cakes in the £4.00 price range suitable. All of these birthday and celebration cakes are available for pickup or delivery if the minimum order requirements are met.

Tesco Graduation Cakes

Fine Tesco cakes are available for celebrating a graduation. It does not matter if the student is graduating from their lower grades or with their doctorate; Tesco has a cake that will help them celebrate with family and friends. The Finest Cake collection is appropriate for such a momentous event. It includes a variety of flavors such as lemon, chocolate, red velvet, black forest, and several types of sponge cake.

A Tesco Finest cake costs about £2.75, which will work for even the lowest of budgets. These cakes are typically available in the bakery case. However, if a customer wants to ensure a particular flavor at a particular time, it is in their best interest to make arrangements with their local bakery at least 24 to 48 hours in advance.

Tesco Baby Shower Cakes

Large sharing cakes are a nice touch for baby showers. These Tesco cakes make sure each guest will be able to satisfy their sweet tooth. The Raspberry Sponge Cake is a sweet addition to the celebration of new life. An Iced Coffee Cake would also be welcome at a brunch baby shower. If the mother-to-be has been craving chocolate, then the Triple Layer Chocolate Cake would be most appropriate. Those who like giant cupcakes for baby showers may want to take a look at ASDA cakes.

Tesco Wedding Cakes

While Tesco does not make cakes specifically for weddings, some cakes would be fine to serve at smaller receptions. The Finest Cakes collection includes a lovely Victoria Sponge Cake that suits the modern trend of ditching the icing. Serving six per cake, it would be nice to have one for each table, creating a personalized experience for all the guests. Most of the Finest Cakes are £2.75, though the prices can differ.

Bridal parties that need to serve several guests should arrange with their local Tesco ahead of time to ensure enough cake to meet their needs.

Tesco Bakery Prices

As we’ve already mentioned, Tesco does not just bake cakes in their bakeries. In fact, if you look in their bakery department, you will see sections such as Small Cakes, Bites & Slices, Flapjacks & Traybakes, Fruit Pies & Tarts, as well as Healthier & Organic Cakes.

In the Small Cakes, Bites & Slices category, you can buy things like a Cadbury Chocolate Mini Roll 5 Pack for £1.50 or £0.30/each, Thorntons Mini Caramel Shortcakes 9Pk for £1.45 or £0.16/each, and even a Tesco Chocolate Brownie Bites 20 Pack for £1.80 or £0.09/each.
