This is the only reason we're ordering a cake. Although, I am hoping that the specialty cake with buttercream will be much better than the cakes that used to come with the celebration package.

We always have a cake for our birthdays here so we will be ordering a specialty cake for DS as he will celebrate his birthday on board.

We had the one they give at Dinner last year so will stick with that. We'll also order the 'cake of the day' from room service.
This is what i have heard as well. My ds is celebrating a birthday on board this year. We are skipping the cake. Will probably look into the cake of the day. Bringing our own decorations, much cheaper then those packages.

This is what I want to know too. I have tried their specialty cakes and numerous cake desserts, but Im wondering if the special order ones with butter cream are better and worth it.

I'm sure the 'specialty' cakes will be better and fresher than the celebration cake or the mickey cake. To be honest, I think the reviews I read mainly referred to the celebration and mickey cakes. The options for the specialty cakes include some fresh things like whipped cream and mousse, so I'm sure they'll be fresher. Am guessing the sponge they use is all the same frozen stuff though.

I think the special order ones will be better. Since they have so many choices, and are "special order", they won't be made in advance....more than a day, anyway, so they should be tasty. The price is really out of line...WOW....but, we do some pretty crazy things for our kids, right?

I did taste one special order wedding cake, that was buttercream as opposed to having fondant, and it was very good.

That's the best cake, it's always fresh, just not very tasty unless your stateroom attendant puts chocolates on it.

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.

Are you sure that was a special order cake and not the one that used to be included in the Celebration package? It looks just like the one that came with the Celebration package.

That picture is exactly what we got with our pre-ordered celebration package with decorations and magnet on the MR last April. Our cake was delicious; I wonder if it depends on the chef assigned to the order?

I was pregnant so I had decided the price of the package was worth it if we got a cake along with me not having to put up decorations with a baby belly in the way. Now it's just the decorations, which is ridiculous.

My wonderful family ordered me a birthday cake while on the Fantasy earlier this month. It was a carrot cake with white frosting and all 10 of us at the table thought it was moist and deeeeelicious!! There was not a crumb left and this was after we all had dessert......

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.
