That's where my dd will be celebrating her 13th birthday in Oct. I wanted to get a special cake for dessert that night, but some told me that it wasn't easy to do. So, I decided to get the cake after our lunch. If I were you, I would try to contact the kitchen at Ft. Wilderness..maybe Trails End Restarurant, and see what they have to say. I would be interested in what they tell you.

I wanted to post this again in hopes that it will help someone with their cake selection. I have had great experience with the GF bakery and them delivering cakes to various locations on WDW property.

When I posted this before no one responded, so hopefully someone was able to get a great cake. Please PM or respond with any questions. Love this thread.

I have had cakes from the GF bakery delivered to CR (concourse), Poly ('Ohana), and WL (WCC) - this one for Sept. 1.

I have spoken with the Food and Bev manager at each location (Not just the restaurant manager - the actual Food and Bev manager for the resort) and when I requested a special cake they put me in touch with the GF bakery. When I explained to the GF pastry chef that I wanted a special cake, I e-mailed the specifics to him. They (GF pastry chef) e-mailed back with a price quote, and then I e-mailed or called in my credit card.

The Food and Bev manager (at the resort I am dining at) then attaches to my ADR that I have a special cake from the GF bakery waiting in the kitchen. The GF bakery takes care of delivering it to your requested restaurant.

I'm not saying the cakes I have ordered are cheap ( I think they are a bit pricey - dad is a pastry chef in st. louis and that is what I am basing my prices on), but I wanted something more than the run of the mill cakes at the restaurants. Each time we were celebrating something special.

I ordered a b-day cake there last November for my 40th birthday.

They told me I could have just about any character on it except Pixar and Pooh.

It was $25.

I am also interested in the HDDR cake possibility. It is our 10th anne. and our last night in WDW and to be honest, my oldest doesn't eat strawberry short cake.

Has ANYONE done this?

I'm not sure but I don't think it was the only choice. I just love chocolate so that is what I picked. I'm pretty sure you can get vanilla frosting as well.

Just call the CRT #407-824-7091 and see what they have.

Does the WCC have special order cakes or do I need to pick one up from GF. My mother is celebrating her B-day on Thanksgiving and I would love to get her a special cake.

I called yesterday to order my dd's birthday cake. Originally I wanted a cake for our dinner at 1900 Park Fare but unfortunatley a rude CM answered my call. She pushed the frozen 6" cakes on me and only offered me the castle cake or a cake with a Cinderella edible image. Obviously she was having an off day.

So I called the main dining number and talked to Irene who double checked my ADRs to make sure dd's birthday would be recognized during our trip and suggested I order a cake from the MK Bakery instead. So I called the MK Bakery and got another wonderful CM named Amy. She gave me all the options and I ordered an 8" vanilla cake with dd's favorite colors, flowers, and a edible image of the castle with fireworks! I hope it turns out great. The CM was very helpful!

i called the YC about the Illuminations cake. I'm not sure if YC operates differently or what, but i was told that the 8" 25.00 could not be customised (except the writing) and if i wanted to customize it, i would have to get the 40 dollar cake.She then told me that the character add ons ( i wanted the cheshire cat) would be an additional 30.00 I took a pass on that and instead just got an all chocolate cake with Happy Birthday Paul on it. I am going to call AKL in room dining and ask them about a Cheshire Cat cake for DH's actual bday when we are staying at AKL. Since it would be deliverd to the room, do i need to wait until i am ther to order it?

Well I just got off the phone with a great CM at the GF Bakery and I know have a cake for our afternoon tea. CM didn't ask for my ADR number which I thought was odd, but I guess that goes to show that maybe you can just meet them and bring your cake wherever you want?

Anyways I feel so plain. I ordered a Marble cake with Buttercream frosting and pink and yellow flowers that says happy birthday. The lady at the bakery said the custard with the fresh sliced strawberries is very popular, but I don't know if my party would like that. Of course I don't want to ask them because it is a suprise.

The 8" cake from the bakery was $25.00. She said I can call up and change anything for the cake up to two days in advance. So I guess I will have some time to think about whether or not to make changes or keep it as is! Maybe I should call and have them put a castle on top? I can't decide what to do!

I will be sure and post pictures when we return.


100AcreWood- I had called GF Private dining as well to try and do the cake and the lady who answered the phone suggested the 6" frozen cake to me as well. I then told her that in the past I have done more of a specality cake and she transfered me to the GF Bakery. I wonder if they are getting inudated with calls for cakes these days?

Actually i have heard that that is the reason that they no longer deliver to other resorts, and why they don't allow pick ups. It was just getting to be too hard to handle and they decided to put the GF patrons (room and dining) first.
