found great red velvet cake but with a problem

I want to buy a large Red Velvet Cake for a holiday get together. I found an amazingly good one in of all places the Captain harvey's Submarines the original owners opened on Merritt Boulevard in Dundalk near the beltway. So far so good....BUT!!! They wont sell me a whole cake!
I can not serve individual slices like that...I want it to stand as a decoration on the table as well as just a dessert. I was thinking of two of them actually. Their slices are enormous and the whole cake must be gorgeous, but they wont budge on this. Should I take them up on their offer to sell me the slices at a discount from the individual slice price and figure out a way to make it decorative, or should I keep looking?
This is for Sunday, December 28th, so I have at least a little time to make up my mind. Thank you in advance for your help
