Did they pick out what the cake was on or did you have to give it to them? I love your cake!

Yes, I sure did! My baker was sooooo nervous about getting chocolate shipped to her! I had it shipped directly to her bakery and she made me come open it when it got there!

the Mad Hatter cake is an option that Disney has and you can change colors and patterns as need be, but Disney can make almost any cake that you can dream up.

My parents are going to be celebrating their 44 wedding anniversary. We will be staying at the GF. Is it possible for the bakery to just do a top layer of one of the wedding cakes shown on here with the beautiful castle, or are these cakes created only for people getting married at DW? I have looked through pages and pages on the anniv. and birthday thread - wow that's exhaustive! Thanks for any help!

Vanessa (figmentfan814) did this for her 1st anniversary. Here's her TR that talks about it. She actually set up a private dining, which she explains, but it included the cake.

Congrats to your parents! Mine will celebrate 45 this summer! I told them if they make it to 50 without doing each other in (they've gotten a little rambunctious in their later years...now I'm the adult!), then I'll pay for a VR at WDW!! (plus, it gives me an excuse to plan another wedding!)

Thank you. That cake was actually on display at Franck's when I went for my planning session. I believe it was called Queen of Hearts. It was in Pink and Purple but I told them I just wanted white and pink.

Here is how the cake looked in Francks. (its not displayed there anymore)


and of course mine.



If you see a cake, Disney will customize it anyway you want.

You can call Private Dining at the Grand Floridian and ask for an anniversary cake: 407-824-2474. I have to warn you, the contact person there can be quite capricious. Sometimes she will say they only make anniversary cakes for people who were married at WDW and sometimes she has no problem filling the request.

Check out the Birthday & Anniversary Cake thread on the DIS food board for pictures of anniversary cakes made for people dining or staying at the Grand Floridian: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1859670

I have read about this woman and I was hoping there would be a way around her! We are staying RPC, Do you think concierge would be able to accomadate my request if I went through them? I thought if I sent them a picture maybe they could help me out? I have looked through many pages on the birthday and anniversary cake thread, but this is the thread that has the most beautiful cakes of all! I know exactly what I want, I just need it minitaturized since there are only a few of us. I am really nervous about calling as I have read so many negative experiences about people's experiences trying to get cakes made.

Ultimately, any cake request at the Grand will go thru the "cake lady". She is the contact for the bakery when it comes to arranging, quoting price, and follow up. RPC will still go thru her for any cake request. As she has direct contact with the bakery, she is still the best way to go.
If you're planning a memorable event, allow yourself plenty of time to have the proper arrangements made. Waiting until 2 days before your event will only lead to dissappointment.

Here's something to think about.

Lookf for a picture of your parents original wedding cake. Most often the Grand Floridian Wedding team can make a replica of the top tier, or the whole cake!

Just go thru the "cake lady",she will coordinate with the bakery.
