theme cakes

We will be celebrating DD 2 birthday @ WDW. I called today to order a special cake possibly her favorite princess' and I was told they don't do theme cakes. What is the point in the cake hotline if all I want is a mickey cake that I can order when I walk in ???

For something like this, you'll want to go somewhere that has a bakery, like a GF restaurant. You'll need to know what you want, and let them know that you know that it's not customary to get a large cake for just a few people, but you know what you'd like, and could they please work with you.

Don't give up, it just might take some doing!

I was told that if you want a full cake (not a cupcake) it must be ordered ahead of time, you can not get a cake upon walking in, regardless of the design (I was told this by a cm at a restaurant, so it could be wrong LOL)

Here is my birthday cake It was absolutely delicious
$65.00 + tax & gratuity ($35.00 for the cake and $30.00 decorating fee)
Jan 26, 2009
1900 Park Faire at GF
8" Yellow cake with white chocolate mousse filling. Pink fondant with Cinderella's slipper on top filled with whipped cream and raspberries. I also asked if they could put a few flowers on the top and it looked perfect!!!
When I had called Linda was on vacation and the woman who helped me asked the chef if they could do something like I had asked. When she came back to tell me they could she gave me a choice of 8" or 10" so we went with the 8".

Could you tell me which number you called to talk to the person? Did you call the Cake Hotline, or the GF specifically? I want to do a cake at 1900 Park Fare in August, and since yours is gorgeous, figured I'd go the same route as you.

Tink was edible...we didn't eat it because dd wanted to save it. I just tossed it out about a month ago...after over two years of just sitting in the fridge!! But, it was edible..the whole thing!!

OMG, please tell me I can get these delivered to resorts, like we're having my mom's b/day dinner at Tony's, I can change it if need be, but I absolutely LOVE the Nemo cake!! I guess we can hop on the monorail to go to 1900 pf....there will be 6 of us, 4 on the DDP, and 2 that aren't. If I can get it to Tony's, I'd be happy!!! What about sending it to Kona? I just LOVE those cakes!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

So if you want something really unique, like the Nemo cake, which number do you call? We'll be celebrating DD 2nd birthday during our next trip and would love to do a really special cake. That said, I don't just want a standard cake with a few frosting flowers on it--I can get that at the supermarket. I'd love to get something really exceptional for all of us to enjoy!

The Nemo cake was incredible...better than my wildest imagination. I'm not sure what other bakeries make it up though. You could call the cake hotline and ask....not sure if all bakeries make the same cakes. I know that I'll be getting my cakes from the Yacht Club bakery all the time now...that cake was just too wonderful for words.

Even though my poor step-granddaughter couldn't eat it, the rest of us did a mighty good job with it...there were 7 of us, so we made a huge dent in it and then gave it to my ds to take home to Tampa with him!!!

This one was for my dd's 13th birthday....GF Cafe. Very yummy.

The Nemo one was about $100, about a year ago; the Tink one was $85, in '06.
Those cakes are amazing! Can you tell me when you called to order did you have a specific idea of what you wanted? We are going in August for my DD's 3rd birthday and we are going to get her a cake. I have never called and ordered one before so I was wondering do you need to ask for something exact? I know she would love something like that Nemo cake that really pops at you! I basically want something more than just a picture put on a cake! Any suggestions?

I called the YC bakery directly for the Nemo cake. I told them the size I wanted and that the birthday girl was a huge Nemo fan...they gave me a price, I okayed it.
For the Tinkerbell cake, I called the GF number if I remember correctly. I told them pretty much what I wanted...I had seen the same cake here on the DIS boards.

I called about 10 days before we were to arrive in WDW. I think the cake hotline has pretty much done away with the need to call the specific resort now...or perhaps they can transfer you over if there is something specific you need.

Great thank you! I really want my daughter's birthday to be special since we will be there on her actual birthday. So I am going to have to really put a lot of thought into it!

Thank you!
