We just returned from WDW and I thought I'd post a quick photo and review of the birthday cake my dh ordered for me from the GF.

I'd wanted an Eeyore cake, but dh was told that because Disney doesn't own the rights to the Pooh characters, it wasn't possible. So he asked them to make a cake with an empty spot on top and then brought a figurine we bought on our first family trip 11 years ago.

The cake was $90 plus tax and tip. It was marble batter with buttercream frosting. Although the cake itself was adorable, it was definitely the WORST cake we've ever tried to eat! It was spongy and almost tasteless. We had family over to our villa for dinner and cake, and none of us could stomach more than a couple of bites. It was SO disappointing, especially for the price.

We are back from our trip and I finally have time to share pics of the wonderful cake that cakemanbri did for us

Purchased at CM's
8 inch chocolate with buttercream icing and (chocolate filling??)asked for vanilla but that's OK covered in fondant
Disney's Dinosaur carnatoraus (bad guy) as main character with Jungle Theme

It tasted delicious. We had 8 people there and we only touched about 1/2 of the cake and took the rest back to our room and put in the fridge.

The kiddos went crazy for the "rocks". They were decorated jellybeans Everything except the palm trees and the wires that held the flowers in place could be eaten.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Price $53
Date Received September 21, 2009
Location Chef Mickey's
Cake info - Flavors, special requests, etc White Cake Butter Cream
Anything else special about that particular cake

DS asked for a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake. The hotline said they could do an edible image or the Mickey Head Cake. I didn't really want an edible image but my son specifically asked for a Clubhouse Cake so I went with that.

It was delicious!!! They also asked if I wanted a castle card for the table for an extra $6. I said sure why not!

DS was thrilled but I hoped for an actual image of the clubhouse not the mousekadoer but oh well!

I wanted to share the surprise cake that I ordered from the GF Bakery for our 9th anniversary Wishes Cruise from the GF on 9/17. It was a white almond cake with amaretto buttercream filling and frosting and then covered in white fondant. The cake was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The cake was delivered to the boat. It was super hot and muggy that night so it started to melt very quickly. Sorry about the picture quality but the boat was moving and the cake was melting fast!

The cake was $150 plus the gratuity, delivery, etc. I think it came to around $195 in the end.

We didn't come close to finishing the cake before we left. There were 7 of us on the cruise and we had the cake for 5 days after that.

We celebrated DS Birthday during our trip Sept.9th-18th. Maddox had 2 cakes...one at Chef Mickey's and one at 1900 Park Fare. I called the Contemporary 2 months in adavance and asked them if they could make the hand-piped Mickey Head cake like the one that they make at the Grand Floridian and they said it would be no problem! I spoke to a super nice lady named Eadie who spoke to Brian the chef. It turned out wonderful!! It was so cute and tasted great!! The cost was 48.00

The Buzz Lightyear cake was wonderful too but wayyyy too big for just 3 people. It was a 10 inch cake and was huge! It was so good; it was white cake on the inside, frosted in buttercream with fondant accents; cost was 109.00

Check out my baby's character meets in Disney!

We had a not so good experience with our 10th Anniversary cake at the Contemporary resort on 9/11/09. I had exchanged a few emails with the cake person at the Contemporary as well as spoke with someone directly on the Cake Hotline there. I was of the understanding that I was getting a 6" cake with the white chocolate castle with some blue/violet hydrangea and white roses on top. I asked for a chocolate cake with a raspberry mousse filling.

When the cake arrived at our table I was very disappointed. It had no chocolate castle on it, but a gold stamp of a generic castle on the side of the cake. The stamp wasn't even of one of the Disney castles! The icing and detail work was sloppy and the flowers were nothing like had been described. Although the cake was pretty, it was still dissapointing to receive something that was nothing like I had ordered.

Also, it was an 8" instead of 6", which cost me more. The chocolate cake tasted like cardboard and the filling was a custard not a mousse. I wasn't going to say anything, but i think our server sensed our dissapointment because the manager appeared at our table and asked if the cake was to our liking. I explained the issues to him and he was very nice and considerate, but said that it was out of his hands because "none of the custom cakes are made on site here at the Contemporary. They are all made at the Grand Floridian and then sent over." WHAT! That is one question I specifically asked, if the cake was made on site at the California Grill and I was told yes. I asked when the cake had arrived and he said Wednesday morning. WHAT! (again) That means my cake was frozen for two days before being thawed out on Friday morning to be served Fri. evening. Dissapointing to say the least.
I will post a picture soon.
Here are my pics:

This is the cake I got for my daughters 16th Birthday Party @ 1900 Park Fare on Wednesday. It was vanilla with buttercream icing and fondant. The inside had custard and no strawberries. I ordered strawberries, but it was good anyway. She loved it, so I was happy.

G F Cafe on October 2nd
6" vanilla cake, white chocolate mousse filling, buttercream icing
$51 plus tax & tip

You can add me to the group of "cake was not exactly what I ordered, but still happy with it!"

I actually ordered chocolate ganache icing because I didn't want fondant or plain white buttercream, but if I'd known they could tint the icing blue, I would've ordered the buttercream anyway.

The other glitch is that I asked when I checked in for them to bring it to the table at the beginning of the meal, but he didn't bring it until dessert.

I basically gave Pat some information about my DD and let them create whatever they wanted. The cake was to celebrate her graduation from high school and upcoming move to Orlando for college. I asked for it to say "May all your dreams come true". I also said that her favorite character is Belle, she loves to read & travel, her favorite color is blue, and her favorite flower is peach-colored roses.

As you can see, it had Belle on top, was blue, and had roses (not peach though) - nothing about reading or travel, but that's okay. She loved that it had one red rose for Belle. I also loved the decorations on the sides - it almost looked like little castles.

The taste was delicious - very moist, fresh and creamy.

Best of all, DD was totally surprised and THRILLED!
