For us, they have always taken our credit card number when we made the cake order but waited to bill us until we get the cake. They have always asked me if I wanted it billed to the table so I am sure you could make other arrangements if needed.

We are at CSR and i would like to just bring it to our room to celebrate. I tried calling the hotline and ended up at room service? Having two kids run around might not help, lol.
Any advice? There are 6 of us in our group.
TIA!
Try the Boardwalk Bakery. I know they deliver or you can pick it up. Very easy to work with.

If you only need a simple buttercream cake with Disney's standard decor (sprinkles, fake flowers), just call the Cake Hotline listed in the first post of this thread. If you wanted something elaborate, you'd need to call Private Dining at the Grand Floridian (see Post #2) to order and have them deliver it to the Poly. But it's very difficult to get a cake of that size for only $50 from the GF, so ordering straight from the Poly via the Cake Hotline is probably your best bet.

Now I just have to find his email. Anyone?
We're not allowed to post cast member emails on the DIS. If you call Private Dining at the Contemporary (see post #2), they can put you in touch with Chef Brian.

That's because room service takes the cake orders at Disney resorts. CLICK HERE for info on the cake options at CSR. They also have pre-made square cake slices in 3 or 4 flavors at the small snack counter in the lobby. One of those would probably feed 2 people, so you could buy a couple of different flavors.

Standard practice is to bill you with the meal even if they take your credit card beforehand, so I'd specify when you order AND check to be sure it's not on the bill when it comes.

One thing to know is that if you order from them directly they will only deliver to restaurants/rooms at BoardWalk Inn. To order a BoardWalk Bakery cake for delivery to one of the other resorts it services, you have to place your order through that resort.

My BIL is a big fisherman. We wanted to get a Mickey/fishing cake. Has anyone seen this done before? I wonder what kinds of things they can do

LOVE the band! Reminds me of Phineas and Ferb getting the band back together!!!

Is a month out too soon to place the order? I know they recommend two weeks but since it's wedding season and I have a few things to order I didn't know if it was better to contact now.

Also, I'm gluten-free now - waiting for testing to see if I have an allergy but due to other health issues it's on the backburner - and was seeing that someone had trouble with ordering allergy cakes. Does DIsney do gluten-free? It's not a deal breaker for me (I'm not a big cake person and would probably just eat the icing like I always do) but I hadn't thought about it until now.

Thanks again for all the AWESOME info!!!

Ariel Ideas

Ok- I've got MONTHS to plan this, but I wanted some thoughts since this may wind up requiring some extra work on my part.

We're planning on going in Nov as a treat for DD3's 4th bday. Her big sis got a lovely cake made by Chef Brian for her 5th bday (pictured below).

[IMG][/IMG]

So, I was planning on something similar for DD3 for her bday. Her princess is Ariel- so......i.e. instead of frames of gold and flowers, it woud be frames and accents of coral, starfish, seaweed etc. framing pics of Flounder, Sebastian, Scuttle and 4th on the back side (maybe Max or even King Triton) ...and instead of a white and yellow marbled fondant, it would be multiple shades of blue and turquoise marbled with a posible luster finish. I'd love to have a white chocolate Ariel on top surrounded by an intricate backdrop of coral...the problem...they don't offer a white chocolate Ariel.

Obviously, I could have them transfer an edible image of Ariel to some white chocolate and stand it up in the center of the cake, but the whole 2D thing leaves me pretty cold. I don't consider buying a toy an option since one of my big rules for cakes (ones I make and ones I purchase) is that any toppers or decorations must be edible. While I'm hardly a pro and some of my work was more of a learning process than a success...you can see from my cake gallery that I really try to stay true to this "must be edible" rule. Gallery --> http://www.flickr.com/photos/houcuse...7624710575326/ SO, in any event, a plastic topper is just not an option.

So, the only other option I know of if I really want her to look spot on, be edible and be 3D is to buy an Ariel toy, buy some silicone mold making materials, and try and mold her out of some gumpaste/fondant...then hand paint her. I've never done molds like this before...so it would also be another learning process. I was planning on delving into this technique anyway since her home bday cake is supposed to be Dora themed...I just don't know about the stress in all of this since it's a lot of work and I'd have to hide it from her (i.e. only work when she's asleep).

Does anyone have any thoughts about how I can pull this off w/o either settling for a 2D topper or making it myself? I've just never seen anyone get a WDW cake where the chef has handmade a 3d edible character. TIA

Does AKL make allergy/nut free cakes

I am wondering if I can get a nut free cake (peanut allergy) from the kitchens at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I told them about my daughter's allergy and the lady on the phone backed right off the order and sent me to Babycakes.

I think you'll be OK if you need to do it now, but I always wait til about 2 or 3 weeks out. You hear horror stories of people showing up only to find the cake order was lost, so I usually recommend ordering within just a few weeks of when you need the cake.

They do, but it's not like you can get the same kinds of fancy cakes, minus the gluten. It's a specially made but very simple cake, nothing fancy. I've heard mixed reviews...

That's because Disney won't allow the pastry chefs to create their own custom 3-D versions of characters, due to problems with maintaining the integrity of the character likeness. The only 3-D characters offered are those pre-made white chocolate figures, and those apparently go through months of revisions and review before a new one is approved for use by the pastry team. The last new one they created was Stitch for Aulani.

I say if you'd have fun making it yourself and can safely transport it to Disney, have them leave space for it on your cake and put it on top when the cake arrives.

...Most likely because AKL can't. Disney takes allergies very seriously, and they're not going to promise to make a nut-free cake if there's no way to guarantee the kitchens are nut-free. Babycakes should be able to hook you up!

Makes sense. I guess I'm going to have to play it by ear and see how it goes. I have a back up plan involving Minnie and the corresponding white chocolate topper if all else fails. Thanks!

Could you possibly do the white chocolate sand castle topper? Have you seen that? I think it's adorable and it works really well with an Ariel theme. You could have Ariel in the front frame so she's a focal point, and then have Flounder, Sebastian and Scuttle in the other frames. Then you wouldn't have to try to create an Ariel topper at home, or worry about getting it safely to Disney.

Here is a picture of the sand castle topper:

I just ordered a Cinderella slipper desert as a surprise for my parents for our dinner at California Grill a week from today. I cannot wait to see how it turns out. As a "poor college student" I can't afford one of the amazing extravagant cakes that are displayed on this thread, but I hope they'll love it anyway!
