The 5 Best Harris Teeter Cakes

Not every cake can be from scratch! Good thing there are so many great grocery store options. Our fave? Harris Teeter cakes!

It doesn’t have to be your birthday to enjoy a rich and tasty piece of cake! There’s nothing quite like indulging your sweet tooth now and then–but you’ve got to get it right. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of eating a Harris Teeter cake, you will know just what we’re talking about. (Never shopped at Harris Teeter? It’s a much-loved grocery chain in the southeast.) These guys truly go the extra mile when it comes to baking a completely unforgettable dessert. Here are five of our faves:

1. Carrot Four Layer Cake

This is a great way to get one of your five-a-day! The Carrot Four Layer Cake makes eating your veggies a whole lot more fun than you ever thought possible. (These recipes are sneakily loaded with vegetables, too.) What’s more, the cake is a real sight to behold, with cream cheese icing and even some adorable carrot decorations to set the entire thing off.

But enough about how it looks, how does this Harris Teeter cake taste? In one word, you could say it’s “delightful.” As fresh as it is sweet, this particular dessert is one that we can’t help coming back to time and time again.

2. Sinfully Chocolate Ganache Triple Layer Cake

Chocoholics, brace yourself. There’s a Harris Teeter cake out there that is almost too rich and delicious to be true. Yes, we’re talking about the Sinfully Chocolate Ganache Triple Layer Cake.

This one is exactly what it says on the packaging–a sweet treat that’s so gluttonously good, it simply has to be a sin. Boasting the moistest of chocolate cake layers, chocolate buttercream filling and a deep dark chocolate ganache, there’s a whole load to love here.

3. Celebration Four Layer Cake

Nothing says “celebration” like four brightly colored layers of sponge cake. Boasting yellow, blue, pink and green layers, the Celebration Four Layer Cake is a sight to behold. Once you slice it up for your party to enjoy, the colors are revealed for all to see!

As though that weren’t enough, the delectable dessert is topped off with tempting buttercream frosting. Whether you’re planning a birthday celebration or another bonanza, this could be the way to go!

4. Assorted Variety Four Layer Cake

Some people know exactly what they want and when they want it. Others are less decisive, at least when it comes to dessert. If you happen to fall into the latter category, we have some very good news for you. The Assorted Variety Four Layer Cake is here and it’s exactly what you need!

The dessert is equal parts red velvet cake, yellow cake, decadent fudge cake and home-style carrot cake. In other words, you’ll have every possible style of cake in one so all your cravings are covered. What could be better than that?!

5. Double Fudge Four Layer Cake

How much fudge can you handle? The Double Fudge Four Layer Cake is filled with the chocolatiest of whipped toppings and that’s only the start. This tasty treat also has a rich fudge icing, which will keep you coming back for more and more…and more. To complete the look, there are the large, chocolate curls on top of the cake. We’re impressed! (This is perfect for unexpected guests, along with these quick dinners.)

Eating a freshly baked cake is always an amazing experience, whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or kicking back on the couch. We’d say homemade is always best, but Harris Teeter might be a close second!
