My concern here would be the butter. It's very likely that both the cake and frosting contain butter, which would also likely present a dairy risk. You might try calling and asking Pat @ the GF Bakery, but I have a feeling that BabyCakes is going to be your safest option.

Our mini cake was delivered to Crystal Palace breakfast as I requested, and it was pretty. I asked for it to be frosted pink with white dots (I was thinking white POLKA DOTS, but I didn't say that, I just said dots, so they were small dots). I wanted Minnie ears on top but the CM who took my order couldn't guarantee that. She said they make Mickey ears but she'd never seen Minnie ears. I requested it anyway. There was a little tiny frosting bow on the Mickey ears, turning them into Minnie ears...very cute.

When it was brought to the table all the servers made a big deal about it, ooohing and aahhing over it. They said they'd never seen a mini tiered cake there before and they thought it was sooo pretty. DD loved all the extra attention. It was $35 and added onto our bill (not charged to my card 24 hours in advance like I was told it would be), so I sort of felt obligated to tip our server on the cake too, which I wasn't so crazy about...an extra $7 tip just for carrying the cake to the table. Eh. She did bring out a candle and lit it for us though, and that was nice.

It was big enough for two people, I thought, with the bottom tier being a little larger than a standard cupcake. The tiers were cut into two layers each with frosting between the layers. The frosting was rather thick on the outside of the cake, but I'd rather have too much than not enough. *I* thought, compared to cakes I decorate myself, that the frosting was way too soft. It should have had a stiffer consistency, in my opinion. When they brought it to the table it was already starting to "droop" on one side. We took it back to the room, straight from the CP, and by the time we got to AKV the layers were sliding all over the place. It still tasted good though.

Overall, I was happy with it. It was just enough for the two of us, it was girly and pretty, it tasted good, and DD was pleasantly surprised with it. Is $35 too much for what it was? Sure...but, it's Disney, where just about everything costs too much for what it is, LOL.

Just ordered my Haunted Mansion themed cake for our Chef Mickey's reservation on 10/23! I am beyond excited to see what it looks like!!! Will definitely post a pic when I'm back. Chef Brian was super easy to work with

Buuut, after that, I was emailing Brian for another cake to be at California Grill and we discussed and agreed on the cake and the price, and he said to call the phone line to place the order.
Needless to say I am concerned that I may not get the GF cake from Pat, but I don't want to call about that one and wind up with two of the same cakes LOL!
Pat and Brian work with two completely different bakeries that have different procedures for ordering cakes. That's why one asked you to email then call and the other did everything over the phone. There is no way that one has any idea what you've ordered from the other, so they're not going to get mixed up.

If not, can we pick up slipper desserts at the Broadwalk Bakery?
The slipper dessert is only available at locations serviced by the Grand Floridian Bakery and the Contemporary bakery. Since the Contemporary bakery delivers to Fort Wilderness, you can get a Cinderella Slipper dessert at Trail's End. Call the number for the Contemporary listed in Post 2 of this thread.

I called emailed the cake email for the Magic Kingdom requesting a Tangled themed cake, gave the design I wanted, specified a Rapunzel white chocolate cut out thing and one of Flynn Rider. Complained to DGF I couldn't afford Maximus, but that's neither here nor there They hooked me up with the Contemporary's bakery email (not Chef Brian, I don't think...just the regular bakery email?) and I requested the same theme, included a picture of the design I wanted, asked for the cut outs, ordered a 10" marble cake with vanilla buttercream under the fondant and white chocolate mousse filling, and that ended up costing me $125 and we got it at our birthday dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. OH MY GOSH. We LOVED it and hardly even wanted to cut into it!! We were super pleased and impressed and it was so yummy, the other table actually got up to come look at our cake and wish us happy birthday and our server told us that it made quite the impression in the kitchen!

And since Disney is the place where dreams come true, I ended up getting Maximus on my cake anyway! YAY!

Price: $125+tax
Location: CRT
Date: 9/30/12
Flavor: 10" marble cake with vanilla buttercream under the fondant and white chocolate mousse filling (it was DELICIOUS!)

Does anyone know if you order a cake through the resort, do they take the Tables in Wonderland discount?

I could have sworn a few years ago when I ordered a cake at YC they took TIW, can anyone confirm that for me???

Thanks!!!!!

Thank you, Lurkyloo! Your information and suggestions worked for us last yr. and Trails End was the only restaurant we could work into our schedule and we really wanted to celebrate the birthdays with the slipper dessert.

You're the best!

While it's been about a year, a girl I know of from another board used her TiW discount on her anniversary cake.

Hi cake experts! I will be at Disney this spring for my DD's birthdays (twins turning 9). We are having an early dinner at Sanaa, then an Illuminations cruise.

Where should we do cake? At Sanaa? Or on the cruise? It's different bakeries--AKL or Yacht Club. I'm torn. . .

Yes, we used to TiW discount. However if you have had your credit card charged already, they have to refund the difference back onto your CC.
