Anything else special about that particular cake


When replying about a cake, we would like to ask you to not quote a multi-picture post. Respond to the poster by name if you need to. Sometimes multiple people will quote the same multiple picture thread and it takes up a whole page.

Can't wait to see and talk about all of the new cakes!

CAKE FAQ
Thanks to Lurkyloo & CakeManBri for your help with the FAQ Facts

Online Cake Orders
Disney doesn't have the capacity to order cakes via email right now, nor to do they have a website that you can see your options at. Initial contact requesting a cake needs to be done through the cake hot line or private dining. You MAY be given an email for future correspondence with the chef. Please do not post any email addresses on this thread, the mods will remove them. You can review some options that other DIS’ers have had by viewing either this thread or the CAKE GALLERY thread for just cake photos.

I need to call Disney to order my cake. Who do I call?
It depends on what type of cake you are ordering and where you want it delivered to.

Restaurant serves a ‘normal’ cake
Call the Cake Hot line (407 827-2253)

Deliver my cake to my Disney resort room please
Call Private Dining at your resort. There are mixed results on having a cake delivered to a resort that does not have private dining, but occasionally guests have been able to pick one up in the food court or an on-site restaurant.

How do I order a Fancy or Fondant covered cake?
To order a fancy cake, you need to call Private Dining at the Grand Floridian, The Contemporary, BoardWalk Inn, Animal Kingdom Lodge or Yacht and Beach Club. If you want the cake delivered to a restaurant, you will need to have an ADR at a restaurant within the resort whose bakery you choose. If you want a cake delivered to your room, you will need to be staying at the resort whose bakery you choose.

What Kind of Cake is Available Where? THIS POST (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=40915753&postcount=2401) has a complete listing.

But I want my cake at the Polynesian or Wilderness Lodge!
You may be able to have one made and delivered by the bakery at The Contemporary. Call Private Dining to see what your options are.

Can I get a fancy/fondant covered cake inside the theme park? Generally “No”. You may be able to if you are having a private event and pay to have one transported in. The exception to this seems to be Cinderella’s Royal Table. On occasion The Contemporary’s bakery will deliver to CRT.

Can I order a cake for pick-up?
The BoardWalk Bakery allows you to order cakes for pick-up. None of the other resort bakeries have storefronts.

What are my cake options and how much do they cost?
The only way to know for sure what options are available and what the prices are is to call either the Cake Hotline or Private Dining at the resort you want. The information in this thread is strictly unofficial and should be treated as such.

Can I get a fancy/fondant covered cake inside the theme park? Generally “No”. You may be able to if you are having a private event and pay to have one transported in. The exception to this seems to be Cinderella’s Royal Table. On occasion The Contemporary’s bakery will deliver to CRT.

Does anybody have any recent experience with this? I'm thinking of maybe surprising my mom with a cake, which would have to be at CRT as that is the only restaurant she has requested so that'll be her birthday 'spot' so to say. I'm very curious what other peoples experiences have been with a cake at CRT.

Yes I did and there are a few in the the Cake Photo thread towards the end.

My thoughts.... I'd stick with something that isn't a specialty cake and go with cookies, brownies, or strawberries but of the four that I've seen from AKV it seems that I was the only one that wasn't pleased (and I'm not really hard to please).

Hey all! I know I'm a ways out but I'm a planner at heart and have already started thinking! :rolleyes1 (we're not going until Thanksgiving for 10 days!!)

If the pixie dust is flying when I plan, I'll have breakfast ADRs at CRT. I'd like to do the castle cake mini and the slipper for my best friend and my other best friend's daughter. I thought I'd read at one time that they did pirate chests or pirate ships for the guys (it would be my two little boys who could possibly share one depending on the size). Do they still do something for the boys?

I'd also like to do a custom cake for either a Wishes cruise or lunch at the Grand Floridian. I love the white chocolate monorail and the Disney stamping (like on the fancier wedding cake styles). I also love the Christmasy flowers like pointsettias that I've seen on other cakes. I don't want anything too super fancy (my best friend and I would love it but I don't think the boys and kids will love it). I'm thinking buttercream icing on a white cake. Can I do that to get the nice stuff on the outside or will it need to be fondant? I don't have anything specific in mind - should I find something specific or will I have better luck leaving it up to them at the bakery to figure it out? It will be just a general "celebration" cake as it's my DS3's 4th bday 4 days before our trip, my bday 11 days after the trip, we "revealed" the trip as a birthday gift to my best friend and it's her and her son's first trip. I can't afford a cake for all of those different things so I think a general "celebration" cake of some kind is probably the best. :goodvibes

We've had custom cakes in the past and I haven't really been following along on process changes and things like that. I need to get up to speed before our trip. Will it be easier to get a cake for the Wishes cruise or at the GFC?? The best cake we ever had was at CR but we're not eating there (as of right now) on this trip.

Thank you all for sharing your amazing cakes and tips and tricks to get what we'd all like in our cakes!

I called the Cake Hotline to order a special cake for our good friends 10th anniversary. (They had gotten married 10 years ago at WDW on February 10th.) The operator started immediately going through all of the standard questions. I had to interrupt to ask her how did I get something more unique than what she was offering. She said that she’d have to have a pastry chef call me back. After a few phone calls and email to Chef Eddie who had to relay everything to the pastry chef at the Contemporary who would be making the cake, we settled on what the cake design would entail and a price.

The cake was really very good. Even the fondant tasted good! The presentation of the cake was fun, too. Our server brought out 2 glasses of champagne and had the couple kiss for 10 seconds while the whole restaurant counted. While they were busy with their kiss, the cake was brought to the table along with a large stack of paper plates. The cake was way too big for our small party of 4 adults and 3 kids (I knew it would be) so we gave a large slab to our server to share in the kitchen. Word got around and slowly but surely, I think every staff member working that night made their way to our table to tell us how fabulous the cake looked. And each of them got a piece of cake.
We boxed the rest of the cake in 2 cake boxes and nibbled on it for our whole week there. It tasted as yummy on our last day as it did that first night.

Cake Info: I had asked for a heart shaped cake (got it) with alternating hearts and Mickey icons on the sides (got it), fresh raspberries on top in a heart shape (got it), the message written on a white chocolate ribbon (got it), and if possible the kids names each on one of the hearts on the sides (didn’t get it…but that’s ok.) I would have liked a smaller size, but couldn’t get that in a heart shape.
Due to the initial price I was quoted ($145) I asked them to eliminate the fondant, use regular icing and just the fondant pieces (hearts and Mickeys) for the sides. That reduced the price to $130, but it came fully wrapped in fondant anyway.

That is correct you may order your cake from the location that you have your reservation at. You don't have to be staying at the resort. Just need a reservation at one of the restaraunts.

My sister & I are going down next week (just the two of us!) for a sisters' trip/early celebration of her 30th birthday. We are on the DDP, so I didn't want a big cake for just the two of us. We are staying at the BWV, so I called private dining to see what my options were from the BW Bakery.

There was no customization allowed for anything under 10". Even with the 6" (which is still too much cake for us) you only got white or chocolate icing, generic roses, and a "Happy Birthday" message written on top. The full size Mickey head cakes are 10" for the head and smaller cakes for the ears. So, I have ordered the mini two tiered wedding cake, with roses on top. They are supposed to write "Happy 30th Birthday DSis" on the cake board. This cake costs $25. I think it will serve the purpose of having something a little special to celebrate her b'day. I'll try to post pics when we get back!

Hi,

We will be celebrating two Birthdays on the same day. It will be the first full day and part of our family will be traveling from England. So we are going to spend the first day in the water park. This is not only so those with jet lag can relax and catch a nap on the beds but also because it is one of the favorite things to do for the two having their Birthdays. We could not get them out of the waterparks till closing last year.

So my future Stepson and my Niece will both be 16. In looking at these boards I am leaning towards two mini-cakes, one for each, so that they don't have to share and both feel special. I will run out at some point during the day to go and pick them up.

Where would be the best place to order and pick these up from, I believe we will be at Blizzard Beach. Also how customizable at the mini-cakes.

Thanks!

Alright, we are heading down to WDW the end of next week and I would like to surprise my lovely wife with a birthday cake. That being said, what would you recommend?...

1. We are staying at the Poly, so I could have it delivered to our room
2. First night there will be dinner at 1900 Park Fare
3. Middle of trip having dinner at the Luau with some friends
4. Dinner at Le Cellier
5. Last night before we leave dinner at CRT

What would you do?

When is her actual birthday? Any time on the trip? You might want to have it "on" her birthday, but then again, maybe not. Without knowing that, I'd lean towards the first night in your Poly room. The cakes can be fairly big; you can eat what you want and then put it in your fridge to enjoy during the remainder of your trip. That way you don't feel like you have to eat it all at once. You can spread out the enjoyment and have a birthday week! :thumbsup2

I know T-Rex have cakes that can be ordered as part of a child's birthday party package, but I am wondering if anybody has had a cake from there for a birthday when it's just a normal meal and not a party package?

Were you able to preorder it from the restaurant when or after you had made your ADR or just ask when you arrive at the restaurant? Or has anybody taken their own cake to T-Rex?

Thanks :goodvibes

I ordered my cake yesterday for my dd birthday with pat!! I'm so excited and nervous to see it ~ I asked about emailing pictures of what i had in mind, but she seemed as if she didn't want me too.

they also Changed the pricing for mad hatter cakes .. She informed my that they start at $160 now and go up.

She also said they are able to customize 8inch cakes.

This is what we decided on..

8 inch covered in pink fondant, chocolate with chocolate butter cream filling. she is going to round the bottom with the balls like the mad hatter cake which bumped the price from 77 to 90. My dd is not big into characters (I hope she still isn', so she is going to make it really girly with stripes and and stars and hearts.

this better be the most amazing cake ever for 90 dollars! I'm so scared it's not going to be what i expect!

I'll post pictures when I'm back on the 27th. :)

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to get cakes delivered to POFQ? My lucky missus gets to have her second Mother's Day while we are at WDW and I would like to surprise her with a nice fancy Grand Floridian style cake being left in the room.

If I can't do that, what are my options?

I have a question I hope someone can answer. I want to order an 8' custom fondant cake for my son's birthday. We have reservations for 1900 park fare for dinner on May 31st. How soon should I call in an order the cake? Also do I called the hotline to order the cake? And when do I actually pay for the cake?

Thanks

I would call 2-3 weeks ahead...I just ordered a cake for a friend who is having dinner there on March 29th...and we ordered his cake last week on March 11th. Just call the cake hotline...follow the prompts and they will get you to Pat (who is soooo nice and soooo helpful) and she will take good care of you. And you pay for the cake at dinner...they just add it to your bill. If you think about it..let us know what you order and post a picture if you can.

Have a great trip!!! :thumbsup2

To get a Grand Floridian cake you have to either be a resort guest there or have dining reservations at one of their restaurants. Call the cake hotline, listen to the prompts and they will connect you to the POFQ chefs...also the Boardwalk Bakery does fancier cakes but you'd have to pick it up yourself.

Good Luck!

Can anyone advise what my cake options are for CRT? Is it just the little cake in the jewelry box, or do any of the resort bakeries deliver there? We'll be having lunch there on DD's third birthday.

From personal experience I know you can get a fancy cake there. My BFF ordered a beautiful cake for my 40th b-day..it was vanilla cake, vanilla filling, white fondaunt with gold foil Mickey heads all around it and had a Cinderella on it. I am pretty sure that all the Magic Kingdom restuarants use the same bakery (there on Main Street)...call this number it will take you directly to Magic Kingdom cakes (407.824.7091). I will try and find another cake that someone had at CRT -- it was really fancy and had an Ariel theme.

Thanks for the info! I think I already know what I want to order. Just have to figure out what type of filling for the inside of the cake. I will post pictures when we get back but that won't be until June 10th!!! It seems so far away.

Okay, another option for me to follow up on is this. We have a breakfast ressie at Crystal Palace on Mother's Day and I really want to surprise my wife (on my son's behalf) with a fancy cake.

I know she'll really like the fondant flowers and my son will absolutely demolish the white chocolate mickey. If I throw in a few strawberries for myself then everyone will be happy.

Can the Crystal Palace accomodate a cake with the above requests?

If the Crystal Palace can't do this, can I have one delivered there?

Given the early ressie, will they take care of the cake for the rest of the day?

I really do like to spoil my missus on occasions such as Mother's Day so a fancy fresh cake and not a generic frozen cake is what I seek. Please tell me if it is possible. :confused:

call this number it will take you directly to Magic Kingdom cakes (407.824.7091) --- and yes you can get a speciality cake for Crystal Palace...I ordered one for my friends birthday there. again they use the same bakery for all the MK restaurants...so you can get fancy there :woohoo: and they kept our cake for us while we toured the park so there shouldn't be a problem with that....in fact I've done this at 2 separate parks so they shouldn't have a problem with it. Good Luck and let me know how it goes! :goodvibes

Thanks for the info Flea and it's good to know they will hold onto it while we enjoy the first real day of our holiday. I suppose that will be two surprises in one day for her then as I've got plans to use wdwflorist too.

I hope I don't cause too much hassle for kids and fathers who are at Crystal Palace at the same time but have forgotten all about Mother's Day.

AARGGGHHHHH. I phoned the MK cake hotline and all they could do for me was a vanilla or chocolate with butterscotch filling. My missus wouldn't appreciate either, she hates butterscotch.

All they could advise was to get something from Boardwalk Bakeries, deliver it to them and then they will present it to our table. Is it so hard to get a vanilla with choc icing, raspberry centre and some decorations? :mad:

REALLY?!!! I'm shocked...I ordered a vanilla cake, chocolate mousse filling with the foundant and silver and gold foil Mickey heads on it at the Plaza...and we ordered my friend a MICKEY Head cake at Crystal Palace. I know it cost you a fortune to call from overseas...do you want me to call again for you? I'll be happy to...Private Message me your first and last name...your reservation date and time...and exactly what you want and any other possible options...I will call for you to see if I get another cast member who might know more.

I just ordered a cake for my DD's 5th birthday. We're having dinner at 1900 Park Faire this Sunday (3/21).

Just spoke to Christine at the Grand Floridian (seems that Pat is on vacation).

Ordered an 8 in. vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling. The outside will be pink buttercream with a white trim. It will have a sparkly pop up Cinderella topper. She also mentioned a sparkly cinderella slipper and some flowers. Cost $62 plus tax

Hopefully, it turns out nice and delicious. I will post pics when I return next week.

Your only choice is BUTTERSCOTCH?!!! YUCK!! That just seems so wrong.

I am betting that there was a misunderstanding and it's actually buttercream the PP was offered. Chocolate with chocolate buttercream and vanilla with vanilla buttercream are the standard cake options offered at most theme park restaurants.

So i originally posted that i ordered a non character theme cake that is just girly and such for my dd's bday @ 1900 park fare on 3/22, but i called back today, because i completely forgot she does loves minnie.

So i now have changed my original order with christine today. Pat is on vacation until 3/20 ( I also think Christine charges less than Pat after talking to her today)

but anyways...

I've ordered an 8 inch cake, chocolate with chocolate butter cream filling. covered in Red fondant with white fondant Polka dots. I also requested the fondant balls around the base in White Black and Yellow. As well as a Big Minnie bow on top with a hand painted Minnie statue.

My Question is... She said they have a White choc minnie statue that is plain with gold on it. How do i get the one in color?! I said handpainted...
She also wanted to add flowers, but i don't think i'm feeling that, so i'm going to change that! The more i think about it, the more i want to change. They probably will hate me soon for calling. lol

Hey all! I know I'm a ways out but I'm a planner at heart and have already started thinking! :rolleyes1 (we're not going until Thanksgiving for 10 days!!)

If the pixie dust is flying when I plan, I'll have breakfast ADRs at CRT. I'd like to do the castle cake mini and the slipper for my best friend and my other best friend's daughter. I thought I'd read at one time that they did pirate chests or pirate ships for the guys (it would be my two little boys who could possibly share one depending on the size). Do they still do something for the boys?

I'd also like to do a custom cake for either a Wishes cruise or lunch at the Grand Floridian. I love the white chocolate monorail and the Disney stamping (like on the fancier wedding cake styles). I also love the Christmasy flowers like pointsettias that I've seen on other cakes. I don't want anything too super fancy (my best friend and I would love it but I don't think the boys and kids will love it). I'm thinking buttercream icing on a white cake. Can I do that to get the nice stuff on the outside or will it need to be fondant? I don't have anything specific in mind - should I find something specific or will I have better luck leaving it up to them at the bakery to figure it out? It will be just a general "celebration" cake as it's my DS3's 4th bday 4 days before our trip, my bday 11 days after the trip, we "revealed" the trip as a birthday gift to my best friend and it's her and her son's first trip. I can't afford a cake for all of those different things so I think a general "celebration" cake of some kind is probably the best. :goodvibes

We've had custom cakes in the past and I haven't really been following along on process changes and things like that. I need to get up to speed before our trip. Will it be easier to get a cake for the Wishes cruise or at the GFC?? The best cake we ever had was at CR but we're not eating there (as of right now) on this trip.

Thank you all for sharing your amazing cakes and tips and tricks to get what we'd all like in our cakes!

Just a shameless bump - I didn't see an answer and want to make sure I ask for the correct thing when I'm finally able to call and order. Also, last time I don't think I really called and changed anything. If something were to happen on this trip and the other family doesn't go with us or something, when's the "cut off" for calling and changing things around? Thank you!!!

Last year for the "What will you celebrate?" promo they had little treasure chests. It was about the size of two regular cupcakes put together and you got to keep the treasure box which was twice as deep as the 'cake'. You could ask for this when you checked in, at certain restaurants, or order it prior to arrival. There was no customization and the ones we got were frozen solid so we never did find out how they tasted. My two boys still play with the treasure chests so I consider them a success. I am not sure if they still offer these or not, there might be info on the WDW site under Dining or in the section where they give info on WDW Florist and additional add-ons.

As far as the cake for your Nov. trip I'm not much help since I haven't ordered a cake from GF, CR or for a Wishes cruise. If you have something in mind I would be very specific with the decorations, I'm sure someone on here can give you more info. Since your trip isn't until the end of Nov. wait until mid-Nov. to order the cake and I would hope that by that time you'd know 100% if your friend is going with you or not.

to the man looking for a cake at crystal palace:

a couple of weeks ago i tried to order a birthday cake for my three year old at CRT and had exactly the same problem. i called a second time and got someone who did offer that there was a "glass slipper dessert" option that could be preordered too. it is chocolate in the shape of a glass slipper, filled with dark chocolate mousse, sitting on a bed of angel food cake, surrounded by fresh berries, with a message written in chocolate(or maybe strawberry syrup). it was delicious and presented beautifully! everyone around us asked to order one then, but they must be preordered like the cakes. i don't know if this would be more to your wife's liking, but it may be another option for you. i am having problems uploading a picture of it - but it was wonderful, and i believe it cost under $20!

SORRY - upon reading other posts, it appears that this dessert is only avail at CRT in the MK, not at Crystal Palace.

...and I want to order a special cake for my DH for our 10th wedding anniversary. Which resort would I have better luck with to deliver to the Polynesian: the GF or the Contemporary?

What I'd like is a "Mad Hatter" style cake.
Red velvet cake with white chocolate mousse filling.
Covered in fondant but with the Haunted Mansion wallpaper as the design.
On the top, I'd like the portraits from the HM stretching room and an inscription that says....

"Ten Years Together and Still Not Enough"

So, do you think this is a possibility? We aren't dining at any restaurants at the GF or Contemporary, so do you think I could get one of these resorts to deliver to our room at the Polynesian?

Thanks.....all thoughts are welcome!

I'm sure either place would be easy enough. and i love your idea! I wanted a mad hatter cake so bad, but the "starting at 160.00" price tag wasn't going to go over well with my DH especially when there is only 4 of us! lol.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that the awesome Haunted Mansion cake previously shown on these threads was made by the Contemporary.

Thanks for the idea's on the cake. They both are so different in what they like. I was thinking about just doing mickey and minnie in a pirate theme. Will they do a peter pan theme? So then I could use tinker bell for my daughter. Or even a pirate theme with tinker bell on it some where.

When: Monday, March 8th
Cost: $120

Here is the cake I ordered for my DH's birthday last week. I asked for a grumpy themed cake and I told them that I wanted to play up the beautiful scenery from the movie. I gave them ideas of the mine, and jewels. I also asked for a chocolate mousse filling. Instead I got a vanilla pastry cream filling. it was a good tasting cake, but I will never ever waste my money on a cake again. This is the second time I have ordered a cake to be delivered to a restaurant for a special occasion and both times have been a disappointment. Next time I am going to take the $120 and buy more wine.

:scared1: Wow! I would have been disappointed too. Even a grocery store cake would beat that one!

In following this thread as a lurker for a while now, I've come to the conclusion that getting a great cake is hit or miss. I don't think I'll be ordering one any time soon. :sad2:

There is NO way I would have paid $120 for that cake. I would have been complaining big time. What is wrong with the cake situation? Is the person that is taking the orders not writing things down correctly? It is shameful that Disney hasn't gotten the cake ordering/making process streamlined so the guest is satisfied :sad2:.

Wow, you said it! That was highway robbery for that cake. I would probably email someone at Disney with a picture of it and tell them how dissatisfied I was. The one I ordered for my daughter's b-day at Rose & Crown (just the basic screen print of princesses on top) looked pretty darn similar for about 1/4 of the cost. It really is just hit and miss, which is disappointing when you're spending that kind of money. We had a great cake from the GF. A lot of work went into it and I felt it was totally worth the $85. That being said, I would seriously hesitate to order a custom cake again based on some of those shared here. My daughter is just as happy with the ones that you order from the hotline.

i wanted to say thank you to you all for your cake info and excitement! though I didn't post any questions, i did read quite a bit about what you all had to say about the custom cakes at WDW. i decided to try a cake for my daughter's third birthday at California Grill. the first person that i talked to from the cake hotline insisted that my only choices were sheet or round. so i hung up and called back a few hours later. I got a very helpful woman who suggested a "Mad Hatter" cake. we got it with chocolate cake, dark chocolate mousse, and buttercream icing with pink fondant and flower design. i mentioned that my daughter LOVES buzz lightyear (not typically a girls figure). the cake man put a picture of buzz when he is dressed up at "mrs nesbit" for the tea party. well - my three-year-old thought that was the funniest thing ever and this cake with "buzz as mrs nesbit" is the one thing that she is still talking about from disney. the cake was DELICIOUS! and what a presentation! when we got there and mentioned that we ordered a custom cake, the woman doing the check-in said "oh - i heard about that cake! WOW!" and then we heard that all night long from everyone who worked there. When they brought out the cake, about 10 people must have brought it out singing and everyone at the california grill sang "happy birthday" to my daughter. It cake was incredible, the event that is caused was incredible too! though we were a group of 18, we only ate about half of the cake. we took the rest back to the hotel with us, and ate it for breakfast the next day.

a little more info: i asked for extra thick mousse and buttercream and boy was it!!!! the mousse was almost as thick as the cake, and there was plenty of icing for my kids who only eat the icing. as well, the cake must have weighed over 10 pounds - the picture doesn't do justice to the size of it. it was probably about a foot high. INCREDIBLE!
here is a picture:

i also wanted to order a cake for our lunch at CRT that day, but was again offered just round/sheet/chocolate/vanilla. Then they mentioned to me the "glass slipper dessert" option. So I went for it and ordered 6 - one for each child and the grandma! It was chocolate in the shape of a slipper, with dark chocolate mousse, on an angel food cake pillow, with berries and writing in chocolate. they were $12.50 each, and delicious. Again the presentation was amazing. we heard people at 3 other tables near us try to order them, but they are only available with pre-order.

Yeah, and what really burns me about this is I had a long conversation with the person on the phone describing EXACTLY what I wanted. I ended up with little to nothing of what I requested. This is the end of cake buying for me at WDW.

I did call to complain and they gave me an email address at "Guest Communications" to lodge a complaint. You know, 10 years ago if a guest was unhappy with something, Disney tried to make it right. Now?

I can't tell you how many times on this trip I saw upset people. People upset with the way their food was cooked, or that their drink wasn't right, or the food was taking 20 years to come out of the kitchen....In in instances I witnessed, the restaurant never comped the item. I think that cast members may have a directive to replace the item that is jacked up rather than comp the guest for it.

In the case of my cake, I want my money back. it was not what I asked for and it is amateurish at best.

rant over.

Is there any way possible you could repost bigger pictures? It is really hard to see the detail of the cake.

As for emailing guest communications, I have in the past and have gotten a response. I would email them, tell them exactly what you asked for and include pictures of the cake. It couldn't hurt.

i thought the cost quoted to me was $135 (though it seems from reading this board that can't be correct) - then i never looked the receipt :) my dad picked up the bill - so i will get that info from my mom and get back to you in the next day or two.

Try the Cake Gallery thread to find the picture. It's a much shorter thread. About 14 pages of only pictures and descriptions of the cake. :goodvibes

Write to California Grill and tell them what you ordered, including the flavors and decorations (include dates, times and names if you have them), tell them what you got and even include a picture of your cake. What is so disappointing is that most of the time when people order cakes they have something specific in mind and for us DISsers we have seen pictures of cakes so we have an expectation of what we should get. Then when what you are delivered looks like it came from an apprentice at a local grocery store to say that you are disappointed is an understatement.

I know for me personally I was super excited to order a cake since it was going to be the very first time we'd be in Disney on my birthday instead of leaving a day or two before. I had seen cakes that had been done at AKV and they were pretty great. What I got looked awful and was honestly inedible. While it didn't ruin my trip or even my stay at AKV I did learn that I'll never again order a cake because there doesn't seem to be any way to know if you are going to get a hit or a miss. If I order from Publix I at least know what I'm going to get and I have yet to be disappointed with them.

Let California Grill know what your expectations were, what you ordered and let them see what you got. Include a few pictures of other cakes that you've seen done at California Grill. What you got was not a $120 cake and more along the lines of a $40 cake from the grocer. Sorry you had such a bad cake experience but at least you said your cake tasted good, that is a little something. :goodvibes

Here is the cake I ordered for my DH's birthday last week. I asked for a grumpy themed cake and I told them that I wanted to play up the beautiful scenery from the movie. I gave them ideas of the mine, and jewels. I also asked for a chocolate mousse filling. Instead I got a vanilla pastry cream filling. it was a good tasting cake, but I will never ever waste my money on a cake again. This is the second time I have ordered a cake to be delivered to a restaurant for a special occasion and both times have been a disappointment. Next time I am going to take the $120 and buy more wine.

So sorry for the bad experience!!

I would absolutely want my money back as well and you have every right!! I'm having a hard time waiting in anticipation of what my dd's cake is going to look like next week. and now i am pretty sure I'm freaking out! :scared1:

All good advice, and I am going to do just that. I just feel like, much like many things at Disney, that unless you are "in the know" about what you have to request, who you have to talk to, etc. you are apt to get screwed.

That said, I did have the vacation of a lifetime last week and I am not going to let a crappy cake ruin that.

You can tell that this was a generic cake and at the last second, without checking the filling or anything, that they stuck some cheap plastic trees, a couple of jelly beans, and a crappy white chocolate grumpy on top and called it a day.

Does anyone have Cakemanbri's email? I think I would send him a picture and explain what happened. If I were in charge of the bakery at the Contemporary, I would want to know about something like that being delivered. I cannot believe an actual pastry chef would let that out of the kitchen.

This was a cake I had ordered from Pat at GF for dinner at 1900 Park Fare last year on my husband's birthday. It was an 8" vanilla with bavarian custard and fresh strawberry filling with buttercream icing. I wanted something for my husband and both my daughters for their birthdays(all within 5 days!:scared1:) Everything was edible on this cake except for the thread of pearls. It was the best cake ever!!! Cost was $60.00 plus tax, gratuity was NOT included.

Jennifer, If you go the the old cake pictures thread about 3 or 4 pages back, you can see my Mickey Pirate cake I order for my DS's Birthday Party at Chef Mickey's. I was somewhat unhappy with it, although they did a great job with the taste - it was moist and the custard filling was correct. It just wasn't as great as I expected after all the pics I'd seen on the Dis. I paid $80 for mine, and it is slightly more decorated than yours is. It was a 10 inch, vanilla custard filled, with a Mickey White Chocolate cut out, some plastic trees, coins, rocks, sand, and other icing decorations. I mean, I was happy that the boys got a cake and they were overjoyed, but I just thought it would have been better. As for the one you got, I hate to say, it's not impressive for the price AT ALL! I'd have been livid! Did you talk to Jerry at CR? Good luck with getting some resolution. I didn't try to, because we were okay with what we got, and will always order again, even if it wasn't what I'd thought it would be.

Can you order different flavors and fillings? Like I was thinking cheesecake or chocolare with rasperberry filling. I wanted to suprise DH with it at our anniversary dinner at Narcosee in Sept. Anyone know around what it would cost? Do you pre pay or add it to the bill?

In June 2008 my DH ordered me a mini castle cake to be delivered to our room at the GF. He ordered cheesecake (which was delicious), with no filling. I believe the cost of the cake was $25 with tax and tip came to $35. Note that the cake is SMALL. Four bites it's gone. I think he phoned the GF about a week before our trip to place the order and paid when it was delivered. He signed it to our room.

As a result of the Grumpy cake a few pages back, I emailed the Contemporary to confirm the details of my upcoming cake order.

I was quoted $100 for the following:

- 8 inch
- vanilla cake with buttercream filling and icing
- light purple fondant with a sparkly sugar effect (sent a picture of a previous cake made at the CR)
- sugar flowers in pale shades of purple, blue, pink, yellow etc..requested roses, lilies and gerbera daisies (picture of another cake done at the CR provided)
- hand painted white chocolate Tinkerbell figurine (picture from another cake provided)
- a banner that reads "Happy 25th Birthday Megan"

cakemanbri confirmed all of the above. I'm looking forward to seeing the end result on March 28th! :goodvibes

Coming in May and want to order a cake for Chef Mickey's on the night we arrive. When would I need to call and order for a specialty cake? Also, when I call do I request for the chef's e-mail so I can speak to them directly so my order would not get confused/messed up with the castmember taking my order?

I have a few questions and hoping you cake experts can help me out. I have been looking at pictures but haven't seen any answers to this.

We are going to WDW for DH's 40th birthday. His birthday is the last day of our trip and I'd actually like to surprise him with a cake on the FIRST day of our trip so that we can enjoy it all week.

We are staying at BLT, our first night dinner will likely Ohana. Is it possible to get a "Brian from CR" cake delivered to our room at BLT? Is it possible to get it delivered to the Top of the World Lounge? Is it possible to get one at Ohana?

Also he is a monorail nut but I am not terribly impressed by the cakes with the white chocolate monorail plopped on top (even painted). Should I just give up the idea of a monorail and go with something else? I saw a great figment cake in the figment gallery and figment is a favorite of his.

I want to make this trip the most special ever for him so I will probably end up annoying the heck out of the cake people :rotfl: I figure if I am going to spend $100+ for a fabu cake we should be able to eat it all week. I am trying to think of something special to do every day of this trip, starting with a cake the first night and maybe a fireworks cruise the last night!

Yes you can get your cake delivered to your room at BLT. The bakery does cakes for the main tower and BLT!

You should call at least a week in advance but you could place your order now if you wanted.

If you're calling the restaurant, you can't order a custom cake via the restaurant itself. Tricia has a link above to the cake thread, which will let you know who to call to place that order.

I suspected this would happen. :rolleyes:

I called the hotline, spoke with someone at the Contemporary about my very specific requests, and was told they can't do that. :headache: No, of course they can't. So as of now I don't think we're ordering a cake because I will not be talked into something that isn't what I requested.
CUSTOM cakes should be just that - custom. You would think they would try to be at least marginally accommodating before they say no.

I have a couple of other ideas. I will pursue those avenues before I give up entirely, but seriously? It shouldn't be this hard.

I'm getting ready to order our anniversary cake from the CR bakery, too, for the first week of May.

Something like this, without the topper.

They said that the only filling choices are the 4 basic ones. They can only do a flat edible image, not a 3D figure out of modeling chocolate, etc.

I don't want a cake with a flat picture disc stuck on the top, and I do not want fruit mousse between the layers. Square peg in a round hole. I explained what I wanted, she said no, that was that.

I could order a cake topper from a vendor and then attempt to get it to them to put on the cake, but I am just not up for the challenge. The amount of effort this would require vs. the amount DS would appreciate it just isn't working for me. DS doesn't even LIKE cake, but we are celebrating some special things for him. I think I may go back to the plan of having a gift basket in the room for him.

Is there any way that I can get the mini wedding/mini castle cake delivered to the Crystal Palace?

The answer is "Probably Not" according to general experience on the DIS. In fact someone was recently told on this thread (by another poster, not an official source) that they could get a cake delivered to Crystal Palace. That poster called Disney and was told "no".

The best thing to do, when you want an exception made to the policy, is to just call Disney yourself and see if they are willing to make one for you. :goodvibes

No, you cannot. Boardwalk Bakery is the only actual bakery on property with a door and a counter and a register where you can order and pick up a cake. You cannot order a cake from a resort bakery and pick it up.

Oh, I was also wondering if we could use our cake topper from our wedding cake when we were married their? It's a porcelain Mickey and Minnie. I thought if I measured the base they could leave a spot for it and I could take it w/ us and ask to have them place it on the cake before they bring it out.

Just checking out my options! Thanks!

I called the Poly and they told me to call the GF but I read here the GF won't take orders for the Poly. Can someone clarify for me what the heck I am supposed to do to order a cake (around $60)
Thanks bunches

Tricia1972
03-27-2010, 02:37 PM
I would call the GF and see if they can deliver to the Poly. Perhaps they make an exception for the Poly, since it's the only monorail resort without a private bakery?
(I'm at a disadvantage, as that line of the FAQ is from someone else, and not my own personal experience)

Please let us know if there is an exception, I would like to note it on the FAQ if there is. :goodvibes

As promised, I have returned and have pictures of my cake I ordered for my DD's Birthday! I kept the cake a surprise from DH as well! Everyone was shocked, even myself on how wonderful it came out!

I talked to pat 10 days prior to arrival, I orginally ordered a girly type cake, and then called back and talked to christine who priced out a new cake for me. I asked for a 8 inch with Red Fondant with white polka dots with a big white bow and a white chocolate Minnie and fondant balls lining the base of it. It was Chocolate with Chocolate buttercream filling.. It was Delicious!!

Here's the Result....

ds's cars cake will be 100$ for an eight inch cake, marble cake,butter cream frosting. they can't do modeling choclate of mater nor lightning so it had to be plasitc figures. i also inquired about something for dd at cehf mickeys....and was told yes they can do a cindy's slipper there, so one's been ordered for her so she doesn't feel left out. price for that 12.99.

the pastry chef i was in touch with was awesome, he emailed back the next am bright an early and we've been going back and forth today. once we agreed on the cake he asked me to call the private dining number to get confirmation and hold it with a cc number. i called and first ring i was pleasantly surprised to get a lovely cm. i'm over the moon! so guys, if at first you're told no, double check! i'll post pics when we return.

Why is it that the other bakeries will decorate an 8" cake and the Boardwalk Bakery won't? I called them last week, still on the hunt for somewhere that will accomodate my wishes only to be told that they will not 'fancy up' anything under a 10" cake. I know I will get this sorted somewhere but they aren't making it easy.

This is what I thought too! But on my next trip I'm actually thinking about being swindled again. This next time it'll be a mini cake, so if it's as awful as last time at least I'm not out but around $30. I figure it's too small to screw up too much. It's a warped way of thinking isn't it. :rotfl:

So I did and WOW it was an amazing cake!!! I will have pictures up soon. It was an 8 inch basket weave design white cake. It had whipped topping icing and a layer of lemon and a layer of raspberry gel. It cost 29.75:cool1:

You would think they would realize people will be comparing cakes on websites, & try to be more uniform. The internet has become a powerful thing. Sadly, they don't seem to care, & keep doing things for some that they won't do for others. They should be embarrassed for people to see a picture of your cake, along with the price you paid for it.

This is a bit off topic, but things like this have always been my only gripe with Disney. When people pay the same price for any product, they should receive the same quality (or the same treatment). To me, children on Wish trips or similar should be the only exceptions. I'm all for them getting special treatment.

We ordered a cake from the Contemporary to be delivered to Chef Mickey's breakfast on March 10th (I think!). I got in touch with Chef Brian and we were able to order an 8 in chocolate/chocolate mousse cake with a Princess and the Frog theme. I want to thank CakeManBri, you did a great job! It was $135, which was a lot more than what I paid for a similar cake at GF in Nov., but I was pleased with the cake itself. Just not the cost ;) The cake itself was the best tasting out of the 3 that we have ordered at WDW. It was moist and very rich.

Oh My goodness, do not apologise for the cake cutting. That cake looks AMAZING :faint: :cloud9:

I was going to order chocolate with chocolate buttercream but that chocolate with chocolate mousse, looks SO good!

Thank you so much for sharing

I'm glad you liked your Publix cake. I peddle them all the time on here. :laughing: No, I don't work for Publix, but we do get all our cakes there. Our WDW cake was a big letdown compared to our Publix cakes. I also have some Publix, cakes pictures to post, as soon as I figure out how to do that. :rolleyes1

If you upload your pictures to a site like Photobucket you can then copy the IMG code that the site will provide, paste that IMG code into a DIS post and bada-bing you can share pictures.

Hi,
Has anybody ever ordered a special type of cake from Disney? Not their usual, cake with filling and frosting?

DH and I went on a disney cruise and had this WONDERFUL cake called Celebration cake at Lumiere. We both loved it and I would love to surprise him with a similar cake for our anniversary at WDW. Do you think any disney bakery would be able to do that?
I was even able to get the recipe from DCL. But it's for 560servings... :lmao:

Any help is appreciated!

It's a wonderful cake consists of layers of sponge cake, cheesecake, strawberry filling, buttercream, and white chocolate ganache.

It is absolutely heavenly! :lovestruc
It's light, sweet but not too sweet, the strawberry adds to the brightness and the cheesecake, butter cream and white choc ganache makes it extremely buttery.... soooooo good.

I could probably eat a whole cake by myself if they make it a round one... :lmao:

Just back! Ordered a cake from CR bakery to be delivered to our WCC dinner. Asked for buttercream, 8 inch, Jessie & Bullseye western them. Was quoted $65, but ended up being $55, plus then used TiW on it.

Happy with the results. Taste, eh. Last trip had a cake from GF bakery, was equally unimpressed with the taste of the cake and icing from both bakeries. but at least now have gotten a cake for both kids so they're even, LOL, and won't be doing it again. Is fun getting them, and very glad we did, but big eh on the taste.

I was following this tread regularly until I accidentally volunteered to be cookie mom for my daughters girl scout troop. For anyone who has ever done that before my respect and heart goes out to you. Anyway, now that cookies are finally over i am about a month away from my 15th anniversary trip and in desperate need of help. We are dining at "our restaurant" the Yachtsman the very first night of our trip and I want a custom cake for us. Can anyone give me a tutorial to how it goes? I have some pictures I saved from previous posters but How do I get to the right people to make our cake happen? This is my last surprise because DH allready discovered I was booking the Richard Petty thing and now he is making me do it with him. This is it for surprising him I think so help help help.

When I ordered one for our lunch at CRT last year, I called the cake hotline. I can't remember how far in advance I called - I think it was 2-4 weeks. I do not believe that you can request dark chocolate, but maybe that's changed. I was told ours would be white but we ended up getting dark. Enjoy!:goodvibes

No, but I ordered a football cake for my DH from the Boardwalk Bakery, delivered to ESPN Club. This was a couple of years ago, but they told me it had to be a "Disney" cake, which was fine with me, so I asked for Mickey with a football. It was cute! I'm sure you could get a golf cake.

I am taking my older daughter on a special trip to celebrate her 20th birthday. This trip is different as the younger daughter can't go this time. We will be having tea at the GF, so I wanted to do something special for her. In the past, I've done the chocolate covered strawberries and the slipper, so I want something different. It's also just the two of us, so we don't need anything huge. Her favorite character is Ariel, but I also liked the mini mad hatter type cake. Does anyone know the cost on this, and does anyone have other suggestions? Thanks!

Lurkyloo, I think you are the one that got the mini cake at the GF that they call a Mad Hatter cake without it actually being a "real" Mad Hatter cake. That is probably the perfect size for the two of us after tea. Can you tell me how you ordered this, what the cost was, and any other information I need to order it?

To get the one you want, you would call Private Dining at the Grand Floridian and speak with Pat, the cake lady. Ask her for a mini cake in the Mad Hatter style (rather than a 1-tier Mad Hatter cake, which is the "real" one and costs $100+). It shouldn't be more than about $30.

If you want a standard cake, just call the Cake Hotline listed on the front page and follow prompts for CRT. If you want a fancy cake, call Private Dining at the Contemporary and ask to speak with a pastry chef about options for making and delivering a cake to CRT.

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this thread, and looking to take my first risk ( I have seen the good, bad and ugly on this thread and the gallery) at ordering a cake.

I want to go with the Mad hatter type cake. For our 1900 park Dinner Ressie.. so I should call Private Dining at the Grand Floridian right...but how soon in advance should I start working with Pat on the designs I really want something Spectacular as this is a once in the life time kinda thing....

My DD,DS,DH and myself are all celebrating birthdays within a few weeks (and mines a day before) our trip. Basically one in june 2 in July 1 in August... The kids have graciously giving up brithday parties this year so I want to do something very special for them and DH but I can not order more than one cake...so I was thinking about a family type theme for all of us ( The Incredibles maybe) or a Unisex theme for just the kids but have no idea what I could do..Can you offer up some ideas? Or tell me what you think of The Incredibles themed cake? How many do the typically say a Mad Hatter cake can feed? The 1900 dinner is on the 3rd day of our 16 night trip so we could quite well finish most of it at least.....

I think I need help and encouragement....

04-10-2010, 12:43 PM
I think an Incredibles theme would be cool! :thumbsup2 When I was stumped for a Christmas cake design, I went to Flickr.com and searched on a couple of terms (Christmas, penguins, snow) + cake and got all sorts of great ideas. You might play around there.

The 2-tier Mad Hatter cake serves 50 people and the 3-tier serves 85.

Thanks so much for the response lurkyloo, I have been thinking about it and I am going to go with The Incredibles Theme.

How soon should I contact Pat, I have a few Ideas in mind from other great pic here and in the Cake Galleries and will try to incorporate a few....

Hey everyone!

New to the boards and this thread, so first off, hello = )

Secondly, I've been thinking about getting a cake delivered to our hotel room for the first night we are there. I've read most of the questions and responses and have some questions of my own. If I have missed the answers in another reply, my apologies!

I was wondering if you have a cake delivered to your room, do you have to be present? Also, when do you pay for it, when you order or when it's delivered? Lastly, can you set a delivery time, or no. We will be staying at the Contemporary in case that helps. = )

Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

Finally posting my pictures from my 40th birthday cake last September...it looked fabulous. Taste was ok, but the look made up for it! ;)

Location: 1900 PF
Cake: Mad Hatter vanilla cake with strawberry filling, buttercream frosting, black fondant. I pretty much said I wanted a black, red and white cake, maybe with some bows or stars on it. Also wanted it somewhere to say "Happy 40th Tracy".
Cost: $120

One thing I did not know was that they brought the cake when the "celebration song" started and by then we were really stalling to stay there...people had even grabbed dessert already! :headache:

Here’s what finally came out:

These cakes look amazing. We are going to be at WDW for DH's 30th birthday, and I'm thinking about getting him a cake. I have a couple of questions though. I want to do a specialty cake, is 8 inch the smallest we can get? It's just DH and I.

Also, we are doing a split stay. The first part of our stay is AKL, then we are moving to the Poly. DH's birthday is on Oct. 1 (so we will be at the Poly already), and we are leaving Oct 3.

Do you cake guru's recommend doing the cake early while we are at AKL (I saw a gorgeous Jack and Sally cake someone ordered at Jiko, and he loves NBC)
OR would you wait until his birthday and see if I could get the Contemporary to deliver a cake to the Poly (any idea how much extra this would cost)
OR since we are doing afternoon tea at the GF on his birthday, order one of Pat's fabulous cakes for him then?

I'm really at a loss here. I can plan every aspect of a Disney trip, but this is totally new to me. I'm worried about a very expensive cake going to waste, but I don't want his bday to be anti-climactic because the cake came early.

I should probably be able to tell but I really don't know much about cakes....I would guess 2 teirs....:confused3

Thanks for your help.

I think it was just a single tier with a lot of layers. It would have had another cake on top of it (I believe) if it had been a two tier.

And for just being a single, there was a LOT of cake :goodvibes

Thanks so much! I would love to see your cake when you get home.

What flavors did you go with?

Have a great trip. My parents are outside of Orlando now and said the weather has been nice.

We still have a good 2 months to go!

no prob! i'll def post pics upon our return. ds wanted marble cake and buttercream frosting under the fondant....we were offered the mousse and fruit fillings, but i figured, with 4 of us and the heat, we have to take the rest back to wl, it would melt. we had a six inch in october, and got 8 slices out of it at 1900pf, home and then also gave away a third to another dis'er.
thanks, im freaking out slightly, dh is just returning in an hr from a military training weekend...everything of mine, and the kids is packed or tossed in a suitcase, but not his...but hes been given the day off tomorrow. thank god! the military was going to cancel the trip on us two weeks ago if i hadnt paid it off....eek!

This cake was ordered to celebrate our 31 years together. It wasn't exactly as I expected, but the cake was delicious and very nice. I called private dining and asked for the cake to be delivered as dessert after our dinner.
Price $95 ($45 for cake, $30 for flowers, and $20 for M/M topper)
Date Received: April 5th, 2010
Yachtsman Steakhouse
Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse filling, Buttercream Icing. I asked specifically for the Mickey/Minnie Wedding Cake Topper and the cake covered with pastel flowers. Cake was delicious!

Some background: I'm surprising my DD with a birthday trip in May. She'll be 10. She loves Chip and Dale.

1. Can you get a cake at the Boardwalk and take it into the MK?

2. Can they make a cake with a Chip and Dale theme to it?

3. How many people does a 1 tier Mad Hatter cake serve compared to a regular round cake?

Thanks!!

If you call the cake line, they will tell you where they can deliver to. We are having a cake delivered to Kidani Village. They said they would deliver to our resort b/c our resort doesn't have room service.

i'm wondering if you have to pay for it up front - if not maybe someone in North America can order it for you if you're having a hard time getting through. I'd call for you if you don't have to pay upfront

I just called and ordered 4 slippers for 1900 Park Fare and I had to leave my credit card #, although she said it would not be charged until the day of. I did call back a couple times because the first person had a bit of a language barrier and just transferred me, which ended up being an answering machine that told me to call another number. I called back the original number and got someone who took care of me no problem.

They do not give any confirmation number so I am a bit nervous that I might not get the slippers?? Disney is usually so uptight with their reservation #s for everything that I was a bit surprised. I wrote down the date and time I called but now I am worried that I called too early (July trip).

CarolAnnB,

If you think it was too early maybe call back again to "confirm" your order about a week before you arrive at the world....I would think once you check in at the resort the Concerige would maybe be willing to follow up on it too...though a one week out confirmation should be enough....just to make sure your order didn't end up in the lost and not found....

I plan to order the Mad Hatter cake and I so want to call and talk to Pat NOW....its taking all of my control not to get on the phone....but I do plan to call about 3 weeks out I am looking forward to hearing some of her thoughts for decorations for my theme... and then again 2 days before we are due to leave ...oh boy I am rambling....becoming completly obsessed with this cake idea is this normal :confused3

Same here! Ordered two slippers last year; did not have to leave a credit card imprint, nor did I receive any confirmation number. I called this in 2-3 weeks out and then about 1 week before, I called to confirm. Luckily, everything showed up and we were charged when it was time to pay the bill!

If you want a fancy, specialty cake that takes some time, then I'd say about 2 weeks, 3 weeks max. I wouldn't do it any earlier as then they have a chance of loosing the order. If you really want to order it earlier than that, then I'd definitely call a few days before to confirm.

The cake hot line says you can call up to 48 hours before but I believe they are talking about the simple cakes, not these fancy, specialty cakes. I wouldn't call any less than 5 days before.

I just ordered a cake from GF bakery. I have to say, there was NO pixie dust being sprinkled!!!! I called Private Dining and said that I wanted to order a custom cake for DD's birthday. (I don't know who I spoke with as she didn't give her name when she answered.) The woman kept pressing the premade cake. I had to tell her 3 times "No thank you. I would like a custom cake with a pirate theme". So she said "How many are in your party?" I said 3. She said "We will only customize a 10" cake and that is too large for your party. You need to order one of the premade cakes" I had to tell her that I didn't care how large the cake is, but wanted something special. (If I'm willing to pay for it why should it matter what size it is or how small my party is?):confused3 She then said, rather rudely, "Well ma'am, the decorations will be $45 extra and I can't possibly tell you what it will look like. It will be up to the chef to design it." I told her that was great, we'll all be surprised. I don't understand how some folks on here got such lovely and very specific cakes. And why are the filling choices so limited? I had to choose from custard with strawberries or chocolate mousse.:confused3 She really wasnt very helpful. Sorry to vent, I just wanted to have a fun time planning DD's cake and I just got the feeling that this lady simply didn't care. We'll see what we get!

how terrible.

you should just call back and speak with someone else - and make sure to ask for their name if they don't give it - that way they are less likely to be rude and if they are you can call their manager to inform them of your experience.

I have learned something from your post MinniesYooHoo, If when I call to order my custom cake I get a CM like the one you described I will polietly end the call without ordering my cake and call back later. Hopefully I would get a better experience the next time around.

Thank you for posting your experince, if you are unhappy with your filling choices, or lack of being able to describe exactly what you would like, then do call back and speak with someone else. You are going to be charge for something it should be what you want it to be...good luck and I hope you get a great cake.

This is what came to mind when reading your post. How about a cake covered in black fondant w/ white polka dots or maybe yellow or red or all 3. Then have some red bows (3-D) w/ white polka dots around the side. Then maybe a Mickey and Minnie topper of some sort w/ some red flowers. Then to finish the base you could have balls of fondant in the same colors as your polka dots. Just a thought. Good luck, I cannot wait to hear what you decide and then see picks!

I've noticed a lot of inconsistencies with the ordering process. There are a lot of decorated 8" cakes yet it now seems you have to order a 10" cake if you want something personalised. Another way for Disney to get a few bucks from you by forcing you to get a bigger cake?

I think that one Mickey Ear topper surrounded by chocolate covered strawberries would be a fantastic Disney themed treat for two.

The ears were made out of sugar. I don't know if they could be ordered by themselves. I think GF bakery made our cake.
It looks beautiful but unfortunately the taste wasn't that wonderful. It doesn't suck but it wasn't a blow me away kinda flavor... but heck, it looks good in pictures... :lmao:

Someone mentioned recently that it seemed to be only the BoardWalk Bakery that requires you to order a 10-inch cake for customization. Meanwhile, people are being told that the minimum is an 8-inch at the Contemporary, while the Grand Floridian seems to have no problem with customizing 6-inch cakes. :confused3

I feel like a dolt for asking this, and I'm sure it's been asked but I can't find the answer (which is probably right in front of me.) I hope no one gets annoyed.

In December we're going to be staying at the Poly for my 30th b-day. I *really* want a cake, an anniversary cake if possible. We had the "mickey's delight" cake for our wedding, omg, it was the best thing ever. I'd like to get the same, if possible. I'm unsure of who to call-- Poly has private dining, but no bakery, and the cake line seems less than helpful. Can I get a cake to our room at the Poly, or do we have to eat at a GF restaurant to get the cake? It certainly wouldn't behoove DH to eat at 1800 PF again, but if we could get a cake in the room, that would be stellar.

What to do, what are my options? We may not rent a car, either, so the Boardwalk Bakery might not be an option for us.

Thank you!!

Well that all depends on what you want. If you want a basic cake w/ common flavors and butter-cream icing then it would be very do-able. We had one a few yrs back. We were married at the Poly and they made our cake. It was delicious. Ohana's made it. It was chocolate w/ chocolate moose filling. Ours that we got for our dinner out Ohana's was just as delicious. But, it did just have basic butter cream decorations. I went to look at the picks to refresh my memory and it was 5 yrs ago b/c it said Happy 5th anniv. and we're celebrating our 10 yr this summer. If you want something fancier then you will have to look else where, such as eating at GF or CR or ordering one from the Boardwalk. Good luck!

I want to order a custom cake for our trip on may 16th (it's my DBF's first visit!) I am tempted to go through the cake hotline and have it brought to our table at the garden grille, but after reading all of the great experiences of ordering and picking up cakes through BW Bakery, i'm tempted to call them and pick it up after dinner. any thoughts on this?

ALSO, i want the cake to be a goofy head in a similar style of the mickey heads you can order. DBF loves chocolate, so i'd want to do a chocolate cake with vanilla mousse filling, covered in chocolate buttercream frosting. has anyone else done something like this (order a character head cake besides mickey or minnie)? if so, what price were you given?

Thought I'd post these 2 cakes I ordered during this past year.
This one was for our big Birthday Gala with my Disboard friends. We were celebrating my birthday & I wanted to show my appreciation to them for their friendship. So I had this cake waiting for us in our BLT villa the first night we were there. They were shocked! They kept saying that it was MY birthday & I brought the cake! :rotfl: It was delicious!! It was an 8" chocolate cake with white chocolate filling!! I ordered it through the Contemporary bakery & cost was $32 plus $15 for the edible topping plus tax & gratuity

We're going this May & want to order a cake for my brother's birthday, but don't know what to get. I was thinking of a "villain" cake. Maybe just a Mickey Head would be better......can't decide. I know his daughters would love the Mickey one. Any other suggestions???

I might sugest a cake based on his fav ride, he would like it and his kids might too if they like the ride. I once saw a cake that was the hat on the cast members at tower of terror, very cute. There was a haunted mansion theme and a splash mt theme that were both some of my favs. I personally think that if u do get a cake it shouldn't be a mickey head, they are extremly cute but i think something else might be cute.

U might also want to consider a mickey sport theme???

What ever u get i hope u enjoy it!!
