The Official Cake Thread - Photo Gallery & Cake Info
Welcome to the home of the
Official Cake Thread Photo Gallery
There have been many requests for a cake thread that is more of a gallery and shows photos and cake info only, without any chatter about cakes.
Your request is our pleasure and here it is!
How this will work is that all photos and cake info will be place in THIS CHATTER THREAD, which is the official cake chatter thread. Moderators will move those photos over here in a timely manner.
When posting photos on the chatter thread please include:
Cake info - Flavors, special requests, etc:
Anything else special about that particular cake:
(To those viewing the gallery - Please remember that cakes ordered a long time ago may no longer be relevant, or available, but are still pretty to look at)
Can't wait to see and talk about all of the new cakes!
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.
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.

I'm not 100% sure of the price because I believe it went up at one location to $20 but is still $14 at the other. I'm sure someone will chime in soon with the details. Meanwhile I have a couple of photos of how they look at each place. Some have been surprised with a dark chocolate slipper at CRT but it's upredicible.
Here's how it is at GF:

This is a cake I got at the YC....sadly I didn't know my step-granddaughter was allergic to strawberries, it had strawberries in the filling.
This one was for my dd's 13th birthday....GF Cafe. Very yummy.
The Nemo one was about $100, about a year ago; the Tink one was $85, in '06.

8" Yellow cake with white chocolate mousse filling. Pink fondant with Cinderella's slipper on top filled with whipped cream and raspberries. I also asked if they could put a few flowers on the top and it looked perfect!!!
When I had called Linda was on vacation and the woman who helped me asked the chef if they could do something like I had asked. When she came back to tell me they could she gave me a choice of 8" or 10" so we went with the 8".

We ordered this cake for our DD in March
Price: $32 for cake + $15 for topper
Date Received: March 8, 2009
Location: 1900 Park Fare
Cake info - Chocolate Cake with Milk Chocolate Mousse filling and chocolate icing. The cake topper was white chocolate and was DD's favorite part of the cake.
Anything else special about that particular cake: The cake was pretty good. A little dry around the edges but the mousse filling helped with the dryness.

Okay I have some pictures. We had breakfast at O'hanas last Sunday and that was perfect as usual. I had ordered a cake and was super excited. I had a 10 inch ordered but when a few people fell threw I called back and went with the 8 inch. She told me no design could be added (I had orginally went with a monorail theme). But she did say it could be festive and have Mickey sprinkles. I told her I wanted lots of color and pop. I went with teh vanilla cake and buttercream frosting. I was VERY disappointed!! The cake was a spongy type and it was soooo dull. I am so glad the cake was no bigger. They did transport it to our room at the CBR but from there it went into the garbage.

Lurkyloo told me to post this.
Here is the cake we had for our son from AKL at Boma for his birthday a month ago. I believe it was $48.00 total. It was ALL chocolate. You could choose not to have that as the cake, but we love chocolate. Even the face is white chocolate that is hand painted. They said that it would feed 8, but it really could have easily fed 14-16. And it was YUMMY!

Hi all! We were at Disney last week for my birthday. My fiance had ordered a cake to be delivered to Ohana. We both were dissapointed in the whole thing. First. The people at Ohana forgot about the cake so my fiance actually had to ask totally ruining the surprise. Also. He was incredibly limited to what he could do. He asked for white cake, raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. They said they could only do chocolate mousse, white chocolate mousse or buttercream as fillings. He agreed to buttercream filling. For $45 dollars and at a place where they make wedding cakes of all kinds...I find it hard to believe that they couldnt do a simple filling.
The cake was cute:
But I guess they gave him a ton of hassle for ordering a custom cake with Rafiki. They kept telling him about the premade podium cakes pushing and pushing them on him. He called a few different cast members. Overall I was confused. How could LurkyLoo get that AWESOME anniversary cake but my fiance couldnt get raspberry filling and a printed image? The cake overall was not the buttercream we were expecting. It was so cold it was almost frozen and therefore the cake had a weird texture.
Very weird. And the worst part is that my fiance was devestated. He wanted this to be one of the best birthday surprises, had to ruin it by asking about it in front of me and then it was kinda yucky. So I think for our September trip I am going to call every day until I can get the perfect cake for HIM as a surprise to make up for it.
White cake, buttercream filling, buttercream frosting

Cakes to Pick Up
I was at WDW over the weekend and decided to investigate the on-property options for picking up a cake (for those who donít want to order a cake for a restaurant meal using the Cake Hotline or for their hotel room using Private Dining at their resort). Most of this info has been mentioned on this thread before, but I thought Iíd put it all together in one post (also, I scored a copy of BoardWalk Bakeryís cake order sheet, so Iíll post that below!)
In a nutshell, only the BoardWalk Bakery offers fancy cakes for pickup, and those must be ordered 48 hours in advance. (The cakes on display at the bottom of the case are not for sale.)
The Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom offers only 6-inch Sara Lee cakes for pickup, and I was told you need to give them a few hoursí notice so they can defrost the cake for you. They also have simple pre-made cakes at some of the resort food courts. The only one I investigated was Pop Centuryís, so Iíll put that info below.
There are no readymade cakes for sale here except the frozen 6-inch ones you can also get at restaurant podiums, but with 48 hoursí notice you can arrange to pick up a fresh cake. Iíll post their cake ordering form below, but the basic options are
6-inch readymade cake (frozen cake) - $21+ tax
6-inch fresh cake - $21+tax
8-inch fresh cake - $32+tax
Mickey head cake - 48+tax
10-inch, serves 16: $45 for cake + $30 for decorations
1/4 sheet, serves 20: $55 for cake + $35 for decorations
1/2 sheet, serves 40: $80 for cake + $40 for decorations
Full sheet, serves 80: $120 for cake + $55 for decorations
White Chocolate Mousse
Dark Chocolate Mousse
They had a Mickey head cake and a princess-themed cake on display at the bottom of the case.
And they appeared to be working on a custom cake that day.
Main Street Bakery at the Magic Kingdom
The only cakes available for pickup here are the 6-inch frozen Sara Lee cakes that you can order at the podium at any MK restaurant. They cost $21 + tax and require a few hoursí notice if you want them defrosted first. Hereís a picture of the frozen cake we got at the podium at Tonyís Town Square (plus some Halloween sprinkles). If you like supermarket cake, you will like the Sara Lee cakes.
Value Resort Food Courts
The only place I investigated was Pop Century, but I would imagine the All-Stars have similar offerings. There were two kinds of 6-inch cake in the refrigerated case near the bottled drinks: Vanilla Cake w/ Vanilla Buttercream and Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream. These also appear to be Sara Lee cakes. The price is $21 + tax.

Just back from our anniversary trip. Here are the pics of the cake I ordered for our dinner at Narcoossee's. Let me just say it far exceeded my expectations. The pics really don't do it justice. The bakery took it upon themselves to make the gorgeous sugar roses in the middle. You can't see it well in the pics, but they were covered in sparkles. It also tasted fantastic. I was not however prepared for how big it would be. I knew going into it I had to order a 10" to get what I wanted, but it's hard to imagine it until you see it in person. We shared it with friends the next day & had some in the room, but still had 1/2 a cake left. We gave it to bell services when we checked out. Just an FYI if you're ordering a 10" cake & you plan to take the leftovers with you you'll need a full sized refrigerator to store it. Also it was not on my dinner bill. Pat asked me for my credit card when she took the order & said it would be charged the day of. Maybe they've changed their policy & no longer add it to the bill. Too bad because I would have saved 20% with my TIW card. Oh well still worth it!
Here's what I ordered:
10" chocolate cake with amaretto mousse filling & white buttercream - $45
White swags, sugar roses & red mickeys - $30
6 strawberries - $15.00
Total - $90.00
