Question DCL Cake Orders

Has anyone ever ordered cakes from DCL? Are they good? Were they delivered as requested? Any pictures would be appreciated. Thank you!

From what I've read here, the cakes aren't that great. Fairly dry, and you can't specific decorations. And they have a cost. It's probably better to get the "cake of the day" from room service.

We ordered one last summer on the Fantasy that came with the package with the room decorations. Room decorations were a big hit but not the cake. It was not that good and by the time we got to our room each day we were too full to eat it. Not that we even had the desire to eat it cause there's SO much food that is SO much better on the ship besides that cake.

The cake of the day is free, but be just so you know, it's not always a cake. On our cruise in October:
One day it key lime pie, one day it was carrot cake, one day a fruit torte, and one day it was a cheese cake.

Still fun though!

I'm sorry...I totally forgot about this one.....this was one of the special order cakes, for a birthday. Summer 2011. Sorry I don't have a picture of it out of the box. Flavor was "okay". I think kids would like it. But I should also say that I'm not crazy about very many of the desserts onboard. I think something is lost, flavor-wise, when they're mass producing desserts.

We ordered one of the special order cakes, and it was good! We got a 10" marble cake with chocolate mousse filling. It was moist and not crumbly or frozen tasting at all - everyone loved it!

The only complaint was that it was a bit too sweet to have a third piece....

I will see if I can find a picture.

We ordered a cake for our cruise next week. Our DS is turns 5 on the ship so we thought it'd be nice for him to have a cake. I can also post pics once I return.

It's on the Room Service Menu:
Ask our Stateroom Service Team for the daily cake selection.
Room Service is included in your cruise fare (except for prepackaged snacks and sodas).

Here are a couple of examples. The first one, the round one, is usually the cake they'll bring as part of a "Celebration Package", which would be for a birthday, anniversary, bon voyage. etc....the ones you pre-order and pay far too much for.

The second one is closer to what they used to bring to you at dinner, if you were celebrating a birthday, although this one has the special addition of the Mickey ice cream bar on it.

I've tasted three of DCL's wedding cakes, and three of their vow renewal cakes, and they're pretty good. The fondant on those can be like cutting through cement, but since those cakes are made to order, the day of the ceremony, they're tasty.
I think the other cakes are frozen, and always end up dry and so not worth the money.

Thank you for the pictures! the second one looks like one they gave us at dinner because we were celebrating our anniversary. It was not the best tasting cake, but it was still a very nice gesture. I wonder if the special order ones taste different? Perhaps they are not frozen or made so many days in advance?

That cake is no longer served for celebrations in the dining rooms.

I also heard they were not good. I have ordered one at DW and it was not good at all - so we weren't going to try again. I celebated my birthday onboard the Magic on Feb 11. This is a picture of the desert they brought when they sung to me (and this was in addition to the dessert I had already ordered). But I am an adult - a child may want a birthday cake so I could understand ordering one for a child - when we got home I did remind my family that I did not have a birthday cake - still never got one!
