I then asked for the Jim Shore MIckey and Minnie xmas figurine to be added to the top with the xmas tree. I am not sure if they will do this but this figurine is a Disney figurine available hopefully on property. I also offered to purchase the figuring through Disney and special mail order to the chef. I am hoping they can make this work for me. It will be the only time in my life I will ever celebrate my actual birthday at Disney!
Not really sure why the picture did not show up. I am new to adding pictures but it looks like if you right click on the mark it will direct you to the link of the pic.

Hi everyone,
We are staying at AKL and I wanted to order a cake for our dinner at Jiko.

I went directly through AKL (information on first page of this thread) and they no longer have the zebra cake.

They also will not accommodate allergies.

Baby cakes is a no go because the cake was pretty much awful when we ordered last year - we ordered two of them for DD and they were, I'll be honest, like cardboard. Someone else here updated that they use coconuts and my DD is supposed to avoid those as well as peanuts and tree nuts.

I was very hopeful that we could go through the resort and get an edible cake that would accommodate just the allergies she has - not gluten free, egg free, everything cake that tastes like a brick. Any ideas?

I just wanted to throw up some pics for ideas, cause i know someone asked about a pillow for a cake. This isn't a disney done cake. it was done by our good friend who is making cakes from her house as she learns over the past 3 years. she has gotten pretty good i think from teaching herself. thought i would post some pics for ideas for others in the parks.

this was from my son's baptism.

I heard back from CR on my cake for Halloween.....

"Hi Linda,
We can create the 2 tier mini cake as Chocolate Cake with White Chocolate Mousse filling, covered in Rolled Fondant and given the Haunted Mansion ‘treatment’ that will include the Haunted Mansion wallpaper around the bottom layer of the cake, an ‘occupied’ chocolate coffin, black mini roses, chocolate bats and fondant skulls for $55."

I am sooooo excited!!!

thanks! She's getting better each year. She did a 3 foot tangled tower last year for someone. I have to find that pic. She also did a super Mario 4 tiered that each tier was a diff world on the game. Bowser was on top with the princess. There were at least 40 to 50 diff characters from the game on it.

Is this the "normal" Mickey/Minnie topper that people get on their anniversary cakes?
That is the only white chocolate Mickey & Minnie cake topper I've ever seen them put on a cake.

You do have to order them ahead. I think the other poster's suggestion of ordering and picking up from BoardWalk Bakery is a good one since you're not planning any table-service meals. Alternatively, you could see if the GF or Contemporary would let you order one to just walk in and pick up at one of their table-service/counter-service places. It's been done a few times...

When there is a price difference, it's usually only $5 or $10. It's really the decorations that raise or lower the price.

Thanks for the update. I really think your best bet at this point would be to call a local bakery like It's Tasty Too, Bake Me a Cake, Anna Cakes or Sprinkles and see what they can do for you. (I don't like Babycakes' cakes either!)

Yes, several people on this thread have special-ordered cakes for BOG. See "Contemporary Resort" in post #2 of this thread for options and pricing. Note that Disney does not offer yellow cake—it's vanilla cake. Fresh strawberries are one of the filling options.
