Note all resorts have their own bakeries (mostly the deluxes and home away from homes do) and no, there are no bakeries (except the one on the Boardwalk) that you can walk up to and buy a cake from. You would need to pre-order the cake and have it delivered somewhere (your room or a restaurant in that resort).

$25.00 8 inches (Feeds 8)
$40.00 10 inches (feeds 10)

GF Anniverary Cake $45 plus $15 for white chocolate topper

CRT told me they could put almost any character on the cake except Pooh and friends and pixar

6" cakes can not be customized and can be ordered when arriving at your resturant. These cakes will only say Happy Birthday.

GF Private Dining - only customize 10" or larger. They will add a name to smaller cakes but the options are white cake with white frosting or chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.


2 Weeks prior no less then 48 hrs

If you want to try and order something special at your resort, call in-room dining if you have it because they are the ones who can tell you what's available.


They will not put anything in your room before you check into your room.


If your dining experience is less than 72 hours away, you can order a "delicious and festive 6" cake upon your arrival." You may place your order with the podium Host or Hostess when you check in for your dining reservation. The cost of the cake is $12.50 plus tax.

More than 72 hours, from your dining experience you can special order a cake.

8" (serves 10) $25 plus tax
10: (serves 16) $40 plus tax
1/4 Full Sheet Cake (serves 20) $55 plus tax
1/2 Full Sheet Cake (serves 40) $80 plus tax

You can choose chocolate or vanilla cake AND standard buttercream icing or chocolate buttercream icing.

You can add the edible character(s) image that you want to the cake for a price of $8 for each image. They apologize but Winnie the Pooh characters are NOT available at this time.

You can add an inscription to the above cakes (e.g., Happy Birthday Joe, Happy Anniversary Dick and Jane). BUT only 2 names can be inscribed on an individual cake.

There is also the Mickey Mouse (Head) Cake. Mickey Mouse Cake $45 plus tax. NOTE: Inscriptions are NOT available on the Mickey Cake.

fax: 407-824-5530
voicemail: 407-824-7091

There is no phone number to talk to a real live person. But allegedly someone will call you back during business hours 8am-4pm ET, closed weekends and federal holidays.

It was supposed to cost us $25 but our server let us have it on the dining plan instead of ordering desserts (it was our choice either we could have dessert and pay for the cake or no dessert and cake was included in dining plan..of course we said "YES!!"). I'm not sure if they would do that normally though...but it was a good way of boosting his tip :teeth:

I say hopefully because this is a picture that the GF sent me to give me an idea of what they could do.

I told them I wanted it EXACTLY like the picture!! I just fell in love!:love:
Our cake will have only two layers though. Other than that it should look the same.

There are only going to me 14 of us, and while we'll still have some wasted cake (maybe;) ) the 3 layers would have served about 75 people!:eek:
I don't even I could eat that much cake!:lmao:

If it was $165 for the WHOLE cake I would be jumping up and down!!

It's $165 for JUST THE TOPPER!!

The cake done with 2 tiers instead of the 3 pictured, and WITH the topper would be $525.00!

This is one WITHOUT the castle on top. Isn't it amazing how real those seahorses look!

I have special ordered cakes from the Grand Floridian Bakery twice before. Both times I arranged to have the cake at our traditional 1st night dinner at California Grill. The first cake was a white chocolate cake with milk chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries. Yummmy! We were celebrating my daughter's 13th B-day.

The second cake was a white chocolate cake with white chocolate buttercreme frosting. Very yummy!!! We were celebrating our anniversary. Both cakes were $25 and the price was just added to our bill. I'm not sure if they still do it this way, because it's been a couple of years.

It was a 6 inch yellow cake with white chocolate mousse and fresh raspberries inbetween the layers and frosted with buttercreme icing. Since they can't do "pooh", I had them do a hunny pot with hunny coming out. It was made out of molding chocolate. Not sure what the hunny was made out of. It was delicious as usual.

Cake from MK Bakery for DS's birthday. Vanilla cake with vanilla filling and buttercream frosting. July 22, 2006. The Haunted Mansion cake was $25.00 for the 8" cake and $8.00 for the image. So $33.00 altogether before tax. I have the DDE, so they took 20% off, as well.

Cake from GF Bakery. White cake with white chocolate mousse filling and white buttercream. The topper is all white chocolate and completely edible. This was for my DD's birthday. July 21, 2006

"Regular" (not a special order) cake from Kona Cafe. Vanilla cake with white frosting - NOT buttercream. I could taste the shortening in the frosting. My mom got this for me for my birthday. July 20, 2006

We had lots of cake on this trip. So much that I told my DH NOT to get me a birthday cake for my real birthday which is August 2nd.

They said they would serve 8 people and we all had huge slices and had over half a cake remaining.

Ohana's Cake (with edible chocolate Mickey's and Mickey sprinkles around the outside).

Sci Fi with a smooth fudge icing- YUM!!! We were too full to eat it after lunch so they sent it over to Pizza Planet where we planned to have dinner for no extra charge!

The cake was moist, the whipped cream was extra creamy and yummy and the fruit mousse was actually really, really good, not too sweet or too overpowering...I should have never doubted the Disney Bakers....shame on me haha :rotfl:

ordered the mini-castle cake from the GF bakery last week for my family. it was only $25. it's tiny but after a big dinner it was just enough for the 5 of us. plus we were able to hit the MK and do all the rides not feeling over stuffed!

The cake was vanilla with buttercream frosting. The inside was a raspberry/whipped cream. It was *great*. I ordered it via the GF Bakery.

[QUOTE=carone0318]Hi all, we are back and I have pictures of dh's b-day cake that I ordered for dinner at LTT. It was perfect and tasty too. The only thing was, they said that they could do a marble cake and what they gave me wasn't marble, but one layer vanilla, one chocolate and another vanilla layer. After we ate dinner we had fastpasses for SplMtn and LTT held the cake for us while we rode rides and then I picked it up on the way out. We ordered a Chip & Dale cake and the picture of Chip & Dale was a screen picture, so it was very visible. The lettering on the cake was a chocolate fudge! It was an 8" cake ($25) and the screening for the character was $8, but LTT only charged me $26 and change, so I guess they didn't charge for the character screening.

It cost 40.00...expensive compared to cakes here at home, but as far as Disney prices go it seemed a reasonable cost to get what we wanted. It would only have been 25.00 but the Mickey and Minnie decoration was an extra 15.00 on top of the cost of the cake. It was very good.

It was actually pretty cool what they did at the Plaza. The waiter came out with the cake and yelled "Hey everybody guess what?" and a couple of people yelled "what" and he chastized those that didn't answer and said it again. Once everyone yelled back he said something along the lines of "We have a very special guest celebrating his 3rd birthday! Let's all sing happy birthday to Nicholas" and the whole place started singing. I was so happy. It was very special.

Anyway, here they are ...

The cake was fantastic, all chocolate, with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries on top with chocolate leaves garnishing it. It was really good, very chocolatey and moist.

PS with tax the cost was about 35.00. It fed6 people and we still had almost half a cake left. IF you are considering a Iluminations cruise with a cake, it was totally worth it. We had a great Capt, Nicole, see if you can request her.

We told the hostess when we requested a table that we were celebrating a birthday and they told us to sit for a moment while they prepared a table. A minute later, they ushered us to a nice table in the atrium area that was well decorated with Mickey shaped confetti and streamers. And for dessert, instead of the usual cupcake, they brought her a huge sundae of vanilla gelato with a chocolate shell and crispy topping (I didn't get a chance to try the topping but I was told that it was nuts, not peanuts, and crushed cookies, like amaretti). That sundae was one of my Mom's favorite desserts on the entire trip and we had a LOT of amazing desserts.

At 'Ohana that evening, my sister received the usual Mickey cupcake. It was pretty and nice, but not particularly as tasty or impressive as the sundae. To finish off the day, we had ordered one of the tiny Cinderella Castle cakes (from Grand Floridian bakery) and a plate of tuxedo strawberries to be delivered to our room at the Poly. We knew that we wouldn't be able to eat a whole regular cake, so the tiny cake was perfect and the bakery did a stunning job with it. It was chocolate cake with a white chocolate mousse between the layers and then white icing with a white chocolate castle. They placed a thin white sheet of parchment in front of it that looked like a scroll and wrote Happy Birthday in beautiful chocolate script.

Originally we had wanted to order a Tigger cake, but were told that it would cost $50 for the cake and another $20 or so for custom decorations. So buying the tiny but impressive looking castle cake for $25 turned out to be a great alternative.

Anyway, it was yellow cake with strawberry custard filling. It had a layer of chocolate buttercream on top and ganache on top of that. It was delicious.

Not sure how much it was as I gave them my CC over the phone. Shortly after we checked in, I got a call on my cell from Diane in room service asking if we had checked in and confirming my room number. The cake was delivered that evening at the specified time and was a big hit. It was presented on a large serving tray with party hats and horns, a cake server and plates, forks and napkins. They also included a candle and book of matches. Here's a pic:

Last year we were staying at the WLV for DH's birthday and had reserved the Wishes B'day cruise for his "big" day. This is the cake that came with the cruise. Again, I had choices and the lady from speciality dining called me prior to the cruise to discuss my options.

Both cakes were very yummy!

I could have opted for other cake flavors (white, marble, etc.) or a raspberry filling instead of chocolate mousse, and the icing options were buttercream, whipped cream, ganache, or chocolate icing. It was one of the most delicious cakes I've EVER tasted, and I'm a sweets-loving, cake-eating kinda girl :rotfl2: It was almost more like a torte actually. There were 4 layers of cake alternating with 3 layers of mousse between them and a nice thick layer of icing on top & sides :earseek: The buttercream was awesome...not too sweet, not gritty/sugary and really smooth & creamy. I would highly recommend ordering a cake from WCC if you're celebrating a special occasion there! We had 4 adults and 2 kids, and the 6" cake was plenty big enough. We ate a little more than 1/2 of it there and they gladly put the leftovers into a box for us.
