That is good to know. In 2004 after spending half the day on the phone with various people at the GF I was finally transferred to GF Private dining and I was suprised they took the orders back then for non GF guests (we were staying AKL at the time). I felt bad for the lady as I could tell she must get so many calls a day for cakes. I was pretty happy to actually speak to someone in the bakery too because she had a lot of options to offer me...basically she said whatever I wanted they could do!

How far in advance do you need to order your cake? My DH and I are celebrating our anniversary at Le Cellier and I would love to order a cake for that. Also my cousin and I are celebrating our birthdays at the Castle.(mine the 22nd hers the 16th and we will be at the Castle together on the 29th)

TIA

I was told you need to order at least 2 days in advance of the event if you are having them make something speical for you (ie personalized). If you just want the generic cakes that are usually frozen then you can request them at the podiums when you arrive. I was told this by the WDW dine people and today by the GF private dining associate that answered the phone.

Let us know what you find out from AKL dining. I am thinking of having something sent to our room as well (maybe those strawberries with the Mickey if they do it!)

CORAL REEF 6in CM Said Made to order fresh each am

and only 12.50!!
I specifically told her I did NOT want the premade cake with the mickey on top. She told me they made their cakes fresh each AM and I could even send a pic of my hubby and they could put it on the cake. I am wondering if she was giving me correct info. Anyone else had this answer from Coral Reef??

The Coral Reef also told me about the cake but I opted for the Chocolate Wave for dessert for my DH birthday. On a side note make sure you ask for the diver to come down with a banner for your DH birthday. It was really cool and my DH and DD's loved it (it was all a surprise).

Wow 18% - thanks for the heads up!

The Coral Reef must be doing something different than other restaurants. We had the 6" $12.50 cake for dh's birthday February of 2005 and it was awful! That's cool there's are made fresh!

AKL when I called for our Honeymoon to find out what was availible incase I wanted to surprise him with something which I am they never mentioned the mickey in chocolate there. They do something different than GF obviously. They have a honeymoon package, a fruit and cheese thing, A sugar giraffe with some choco strawberries and a choco sign for AKL,I forgot what else, but I know it was only like 4 things maybe 5 offered, and the mickey was never mentioned as being one of them.

GF Mini Cake Questions

I have a few questions regarding this cake and hoping someone can offer some answers - TIA

Does anyone have a picture of the inside of the mini cake?
What flavor options are there?
How does it taste? Was it good? or just alright?

Thanks so much.

I apologize if this has been asked before, but are there many of you that celebrate a birthday almost a month before or after the actual date?
