I know that depending on the details of the cake (I.E how elaborate of cake you are going for) will alter what the cake costs. Like you may pay sheet cake prices and it be not even half the size.

Thank you. I am not sure why they gave me such a hard time. They acted like they did not even want to do it for me when I mentioned AKL as my resort at first, and told me to call them. Well, AKL only does the zebra cake and you can't alter the flavor or anything. I mentioned it was to surprise my DH on our first trip and honeymoon, and basically told them I would like to see what they could do for me. They told me their cakes are customized, and they have nothing set they do. I said that's fine which I stated I was looking for something special not something ordinary. I asked for something in the Pirates movie theme for him which then he asked what was I looking for, and I said something kind of set around Jack. Well, they offered me 2 decos they imported in from west coast, and could just put those on there. Not really what I was looking for just a basic couple of decos seeing all the nice cakes, and (one someone had ordered of jack sparrow on this thread) I expected something a bit nicer, since it was a special celebration and meant something to me. I was told 6 inch couldnt be customized. It could have something on it, but chocolate or vanilla were what my options where for both cake and filling, so I proceeded to ask about the 8 inch since hearing on here they can customize those. Again he told me no that I would need to order a larger cake starting at about 60 dollars then it would go from there depending on how much decorations cost. Then I would be able to pick my cake flavor and filling 10 inch fed 16 people, and would have been a bigger waste much bigger than an 8 inch. I honestly did not understand that, and asked if I had it delivered to our 1900 breakfast would they maybe be able to hold it for us since we would be going to the parks and if we could pick it up on the way out of the park that afternoon. I was told no they could box it up and it would hold up through the park. I just really felt they were a bit rude and not wanting to really help me at all. I nixed ordering the cake which I hate and regret, but I just honestly felt small when talking to them the service was not friendly, nor helpfull, and I ended up feeling like a bother to them. It was not worth having to go through so much with them for it.

I'd like to come up with a cataloging of the cake pictures but don't have the time currently. If anybody is out there and twidling there thumbs and would like to come up with some sort of cataloging of the cake pics I'd love to paste it into the original post.

IE...Cake 1A ... Mickey Mouse Head...Boardwalk Bakery...filling/frosting if known.

Something like that...

For future reference, I called this number WCC 407-824-2660 for a cake for Whispering Canyon and they said it was the Hoop Dee Doo #.
Waiting for a call back on what type of cake I can order for our anniversary dinner at Whispering Canyon. So excited!!

Just to let you know I just got off the phone with the Coral Reef. They have several options - the plain 6" cake, a regular 8" cake and the Mickey Mouse Head chocolate cake. I asked if they could do something with Nemo and they said they would do a fondant Nemo on the cake. The only options were chocolate or vanilla cake and chocolate or vanilla frosting. I picked a vanilla cake with vanilla icing, 8" cake and the Nemo fondant. It was $32.50 total.

The chocolate Mickeyhead cake (which I had ordered for my dd in January ) was $40, the same as MK.

I just ordered our anniversary cake from Wilderness Lodge Bakery. Not many extras to choose from but she mentioned a few charactors such as Eyore and Pooh?? I was able to choose between chocolate, vanilla or marble cake./ chocolate mousse or raspberry filling/ and white or chocolate butter cream icing.
She did say that if I were to order from another resort/bakery even Grand Floridian bakery, that Wilderness Lodge Bakery would pick it up for me, no charge. (I think you have to be staying at Wilderness Lodge.. but not positive there.)
So I chose 10" fresh baked chocolate cake (feeds 7-16 people) with chocolate mousse filling, chocolate buttercream icing ($40) and white chocolate Mickey and Minnie on top ($25 each, she said they may be cheaper but that's the price she was quoted.) Anyhow, I've never paid so much for 1 cake yikes!!! Thanks for enabling me with this thread you bunch of enablers you!!! hahaha This will be some surprise for Dh!

I called the CR direct and asked for something "princessey" and let them take it from there.

If you're ordering something at the Magic Kingdom, make sure you ask for the Birthday Cake line... I called literally like, 5 numbers before I got the right person!

Called the first number here, got another deployment number. *sighs* Isn't there an operator I could call?

Called 407-824-4100 got transfered to the Main Street Bakery they told me to have them transfer to me to a birthday cake line.

I finally called 407-824-4100, asked for the Birthday Cake line and they transfered me to Goofy saying happy birthday! >_<

Called again and they transfered me to the Liberty Tree Inn. They gave me the correct numbers. I kicked myself because it was the last number on the Magic Kingdom list. *sighs*. I don't know why I bother rofl! 407-824-7091 or 407-824-6653

I went ahead and left a message, now here's hoping they call me back! >_<
