You'll be there ahead of me - please post back after your trip to let me know if you were able to get a slice!! If you don't mind, of course

Of course!! I'll even try asking for it to go from the Brown Derby if I can't get it at Starring Rolls. I need this cake in my life! I can already taste it, lol.

After seeing these posts, I am now cancelling my ADR for dessert at HBD. I am going to try to get it at Starring Rolls and if I can't, I'll walk in and try to get it to go. If I can't do that then maybe it isn't worth getting at all.

We are leaving for our vacation Tuesday (EPCOT)/Wednesday (MK)/Thursday (UO)/Friday(AK)/..............Saturday is our DHS day so I'll let you know how my grapefruit cake experience turned out! We finish up at IOA/WWoHP on Sunday and head home.

I did call and cancel my ressies for HBD so I am hopeful that I can get my cake at Starring Rolls!

I am ready to go now!! I have to work tomorrow and it will be the longest day ever!

Starring Rolls closes earlier than I would have expected, and even when it is open, the grapefruit cake is not always available. Your best bet really is dinner at the Brown Derby!

I'll have to try to find the recipe, in the event that we're not able to get it at Starring Rolls... and, if I don't have any luck with the recipe, I'll convince DH that he didn't miss anything ...

You can ask for the recipe at the HBD podium. They have the Grapefruit Cake and Cobb Salad recipes printed up on Derby shaped cards.

Starring Rolls closes around 3 or 4 in the afternoon.

If you can get another ADR...you can just order dessert...you don't have to eat a full meal there.

Thanks! We may do that - waiting to see what kind of luck others have that are going ahead of me...

Also - purple figment - thanks for the heads up about the recipe - we'll definitely be doing this!!
