I want to order a small cake for my DH for his birthday in December. We'll be at the Coral Reef for dinner. I read a lot of posts, but didn't see any cakes from the Coral Reef. Has anyone ordered a cake from there and how was it? I don't need a large cake, but could share with other diners. I saw a Mickey Dome cake and someone asked about it a few times, but I never saw an answer. I would like that cake also. Does anyone know where I could get it? It was covered in chocolate and looked delicious!! Thanks!

I just found this thread and the dome cake you are looking for is on page #2: it is cake 19C in post #20 on this thread... I have a pic of our wedding cake that is from the Living Seas (the convention room above the Coral Reef) that would be appropriate but way too big... maybe they could make it on a smaller scale? There was a pic of something a bit similar on page one of this thread.

Where do you get ideas for custom cakes like the one on page two #17B? The one with the cowboy boots? Does the bakery have ideas/pictures?
Thanks!

I really want the mini castle cake but

we'll be at Coral Reef and from what I've read, they can't do it there right? Any suggestions or does anyone have pics of an anniversary cake from Coral Reef? Thanks!

It wasn't too huge, but big enough to feed at least 6-8 people (we had just 4 of us).[/QUOTE]
The way I see it that is ony 2 slices each. I am sure you walked it off in the parks. At least thats what I will tel myself when I order my cake.

Yours looks like it was two layers; were you allowed to pick a filling for the cake? In fact, if you don't mind sharing, what choices did you have in the kind of cake they made for you?
My DS has asked for a Mickey cake but before I comitt I would like to know if I can get something the whole family will enjoy. Besides, I really want to get at least one cake made just the way I like it. I know...I'm spoiled.
It was a vanilla cake, I think I could have chosen chocolate cake, but can't remember. There was no filling, but the cake was very moist. It was only one layer - but it was a pretty thick layer. Here are a couple pictures of it cut so you can get an idea of the size:





In the second picture you can see part of the cake still on the platter, that was pretty much the leftovers. My DH might have had another small piece of that, but there was quite a bit leftover.

It will also be our last night at WDW also so won't have the chance to snack on it all week.
I have spent hours reading all the posts on this thread, but since there are so many different experiences, some dating back to quite a while ago, I just wanted to know if anyone had tried this recently?
It was great to hear that Winnie managed to get a custom 6" so maybe there is a glimmer of hope?
Anyone have any luck with a speciality cake from MK bakery???? Or CRT??? I would be soooo grateful for any info

I am going to order a cake at either Akershus or Whispering Canyon for our trip in October. Has anyone had cakes at either of these please?

Wow! What a fun thread...

These cakes are just lovely....

I've been reading through this thread and may have missed it but has anybody ordered a cake at LTT? We're going there for dinner for my son's 5th birthday and I wanted to order an 8inch chocolate cake decorated with something Goofy (since 1. He's my son's favorite character and 2. he hosts the LTT dinner!

So has any one either had a cake at LTT or ordered a cake decorated with Goofy?

Thanks

Patricia

Hi Patricia

I'll repost from page 2 of this thread (I was cake #20)

We did CRT in Oct - it was my mom's birthday - then DD bday 3 days later... I loved the streamers and Mickey Confetti on that table - gorgeous, I'm pretty sure they got a special placemat that the Princesses signed, as well as signing DD autograph book - which my Mom just loved getting their autographs btw!!

Since it was breakfast I didnt order a cake, but they did bring the cupcake, and like you mentioned, wasnt sure if they'd eat it, so I had brought 2 ziplock bags!! I think they shared one and I brought one back to the resort - anyway it was a cute dome shaped chocolate cupcake with confetti candy on it - and was moist and delicious!!

I posted about ordering the $12 -$15 Cake - NEVER again. Unless they make it on site, I think they do deliver them frozen... but again I could be wrong.

The castle cake I believe is very small and cost $25 (again dont quote me!) When I called the Grand Floridian to arrange this special cake the CM there talked me out of it and promised we'd love the Chocolate cake best - she was right - melt in your mouth!! It is made at the Grand FLoridian so I believe you have to have a plan to pick it up there, or like us just go ahead and reserve a 1900 Park Fair Dinner - its Buffet and Delicious...

Also note, the kids eat a lot, and a lot of sweets, and a lot different than home, they are extremely excited, so for me, I belive they'd love sharing a cake - it was big enough for our party of 4 adults and one child we ate less than 1/2 small pieces I'll admit - but we took it back to the resort!!
I truly believe things have changed since our Oct trip 2 years ago - I believe you will have a magical experience, and I do believe it will be possible to have a "Goofy" Cake at LTT - just know, if it is frozen, and the icing is falling off, and not to 'quality standards" you should complain to the manager at LTT and they should take it off your bill!!

This was the cake I ordered for my 21st birthday last month. It was a 6 inch from the Grand Floridian, vanilla, with butter cream frosting. I also had the mini fondant castle added to the cake. For both the cake and the castle I believe it came to around $25 or so. Just thought I would share in case anyone was interested. It was a very delicious cake.
