help with cake orders for Pop

We are staying at Pop next week - I know they only have the pre-made 6in. cakes there, and there is nowhere that delivers, as far as I have heard, to Pop. However, I want to get a larger, made-to-order cake (probably 8-10in.), I guess to pick up and bring back to our room. I don't know if we will be eating out that night, or where, so I'm thinking we can just celebrate dp's birthday with a cake back in our room. I think I can get someone to pick up the cake for me and bring it back while we are on a carriage ride, but I am wondering where would be the easiest place to order it from (if I have a choice?) if I am going to ask someone the favor of picking it up for me. Also - is the cake line pretty easy to work with - I'm not sure yet what I want and I don't want to annoy anyone!!!

When you call the hot line follow the promps for Pop. Last I knew you could get a custom cake but had to pick it up at the food court. I got the Mickey Head cake last Aug.

DH and I are staying at the Wilderness Lodge for my birthday. I am not really interested in getting one of those cakes that looks like a grocery store cake. Can we order a cake from the GF bakery and have it delivered?

I ordered a 10" buttercream icing, yellow cake with custard/strawberries filling from GF Bakery in Sept 2007 for our 25th anniversary. I arranged to have it delivered to Narcoossee's. The cake was beautifully decorated and really delicious!

May 2008 I ordered the exact same cake from GF Bakery delivered to Narcoossee's to share with the entire family (we'd raved about our anniversary cake so much). I was disappointed in the decorations - no creativity or special Disney touches at all. It was a carbon copy of many cake pix I've seen in these forums.

What was really bad was that the cake was so dry that none of us ate more than a bite. We're not complainers but our server took one look at the uneaten cake and understood. He took the cake off the bill and sent GF bakery a note letting them know that the cake they delivered was inedible.

I've decided for this May's trip, I'm going to order a cake from either Beach & Yacht Club private dining or BW Bakery. We had an 8" cake from BW Bakery last year and it was delicious.

Hope this helps and Happy Anniversary!

Podium Cakes: Sara Lee vs. WDW

I did a taste test of the $21 cakes you can order at the podium of most WDW restaurants, comparing the Sara Lee cakes that you get at Magic Kingdom restaurants to the WDW bakery-made cakes you get everywhere else. Sara Lee won.

Cake Made By WDW Bakery

Price: $21
Date Received: 9/21/08
Location: Coral Reef Restaurant @ Epcot
Cake info: We ordered this from our server after we sat down. It was made by the Epcot bakery. It was a measly 3 inches high (it looked like an EasyBake Oven cake!) and tasted like a stale Twinkie covered in whipped cream...






Cake Made By Sara Lee

Price: $21
Date Received: 9/23/08
Location: Tony's Town Square @ the Magic Kingdom
Cake info:This Sara Lee cake was the size of a minicake you’d buy at a grocery store – about 6 inches high – and tasted like one too. The frosting was thick buttercream and the cake was moist. I happen to think grocery store cakes are decent for what they are and what they cost, and I hate whipped cream frosting, so that’s the way this taste test skewed....

I haven't had the best luck ordering cakes at WDW. In Oct. 07, I ordered an 8 inch for dinner at Garden Grill for my daughter. I ordered it a couple of weeks in advance through the hotline. We got the cake, but the Happy Birthday and my daughter's name were almost unreadable. It was just scratched on there. Clearly it was not prepared in advance, and the server just wrote her name on there. It looked terrible.

I let it go and tried again the next year, Oct. 08. This time we were at Tony's. I ordered in advance and went over the order twice with the customer service agent on the phone. When we got the cake at Tony's, the cake was correct, but my daughter's name was spelled wrong.

When we went in Feb. 09 for my son's birthday, I was worried about ordering a cake for him. I saw that the website offers the new "celebration cakes" and I thought I would give that a try since it would be hard to mess up. Our original birthday reservations were at coral reef. The website said the pirate cake was available at Character restaurants so I called dining to see about switching reservations to one of those restaurants. The dining rep assured me it was also available at Coral reef. So I ordered one and kept my reservation. When we arrived at Coral Reef, they did not have a cake order. The manager did not know what a celebration cake was. He treated me like I was a complete lunatic and said all he could do was offer me one of the pre-made, non personal cakes they have. So that is what we did.

Sorry this is so long. Those are my 3 experiences. I've struck out 3 times now, so I won't be ordering a cake from Disney again. I'm glad to hear that most of the orders work out. I'm not sure why I've had such bad luck.

Sorry to hear you've had so much bad luck. I think a lot of people have similar experiences. They may not be DISers so they don't have a forum to vent or they lurk here and don't post or they don't return to this forum once their trip is over.

More often than not, seems like the magic of Disney no longer spreads to cakes. Perhaps it's their own fault - they made such magical creations that news spread and they're no longer able to keep up with demand.

That said, I'm going to try once more in May (DS's 21st birthday) and see what happens. Will let everyone know how it works out.

Price:$40+tax+ gratuity

Location: Whispering canyon cafe'
Cake info - Flavors, special requests, etc: Marble cake, Chocolate buttercream frosting
Anything else special about that particular cake:We were of course celebrating 3 B-day's at once. So we had to do a pretty basic cake. But it was tasty and so big. We even gave half to another family celebrating 2 birthdays.

DD's birthday cake from May 2008.


It took quite a few phone calls and hours to finally connect with someone who understood what I wanted and agree to get the cake made. I was finally able to order the cake through the BW bakery but it was transfered to the CR bakery as it is closer to MK and CRT.

Cake: 10" vanilla with strawberry custard filling, rolled fondant with image transfers on the sides, flowers and plaque were provided, egg topper was provided by us.
Made by: CR bakery
Delivered to: CRT (for breakfast)
Cost: IIFR $95 ($45 for cake, $30 for images, bal is tax and 18% grat)












I had very definate ideas for the cake. I sent drawings of my ideas and pix of the topper, complete with measurements and weight so they made the space sturdy enough to support it. This is the drawing I sent:


This was scrumptious and more than enough for 7 people over two meals. We gave away at least 1/3rd of the cake.

I just ordered a cake from CSR for my honeymoon (2 years after being married). And it's a simple cake - double chocolate for $20. I will have pics after we get back! Hope it's good. And they are putting it in our room before we get there *surprise for the DH*
