I've been contemplating the same thing! I'm also celebrating my big 4-0 at Disney in a few months and I'd like to have a special birthday cake. I had one made for my sister's 50th on a trip back in February and it turned out so great. I know that while my husband might think about ordering one, he'd never know how to go about it. I have thought about doing it myself, but am reluctant to spend the money on myself.

Is there any way to get a mini cake at the Mexico restaurants? I see they are services by an outside caterer but I was hoping for some pixie dust. Any ideas?

Sorry I can't post a picture, but wanted to post about our anniversary cake. I ordered a 2 tier mini cake to be delivered after our dinner at Yachtsman's Steakhouse. I ordered chocolate cake, chocolate buttercream frosting & dark chocolate moouse filling. The filling actually seemed like just more buttercream, but it was good, so I didn't care. It was decorated with small chocolate buttercream roses. Yes, chocolate overload, but my DH loved it.

Cost was $35. And I used Tables in Wonderland so got the discount. Size was perfect for 2 after a big dinner. My only compliant was the way the waiter presented it. He brought it before asking about/ bringing coffee, so we were done with it before we had our coffee. And the way he worded it, "we want to wish you..." My husband thought they were giving us a cake. I had to tell him I had ordered it.

But it was yummy!

Has anyone tried to order a pie (cherry, apple, blueberry, etc.) instead of a cake to deliver to ADR? Or is this something that I'd have to inquire about from an outside bakery?

The boyfriend is INSISTING no cake, and I know he'd prefer pie over chocolates.

Unfortunately, the restaurants that use that company can only get chocolate or vanilla cakes in standard sizes—nothing smaller than a 6-inch. You could order one to pick up from BoardWalk Bakery on your way into the park maybe...?

I haven't seen this, but I'm dead curious to know if they'd do it for you. Give them a call and let us know what they say!

15-20 minute walk from the Mexico Pavillion, via the International Gateway Depends on how fast/slow you walk An adult would be able to do it faster without kids ect

So have you have decided whether or not to order a cake? Any thoughts on theme? Would love to hear about it!

Have you decided yet on your own cake? What was the theme of the cake you had made for your sister?

Hi all! I've posted a couple of times on this thread, but I'm just about ready to order my cake!

I've been in touch with the bakers for the Magic Kingdom as our rezzie is for CRT. This is the cake I was originally thinking of:



Two layers, with icing like Vanellope's tights and characters in white chocolate.

The bakery quotes me $55 for a mini cake and $75 for a 6 inch cake.

1) Does anyone have any pictures of 6 inch cakes they can share? I've gone back and looked at old threads, but would love to see something more recent.

2) We'll be splitting a cake between myself, DH and my BFF. I'm leaning towards a 6 inch because the mini cake seems too small for three of us. Anybody else have any feedback?

So excited!

We are looking to order an 8" chocolate cake with peanut butter cup filling covered in fondant (w/buttercream underneath). For decorations we'd like the white chocolate mickey and minnie anniversary figure w/ orange and yellow roses - leaving any other decorations up to the chef to surprise us with. This is for dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern

I called the cake hotline as mentioned in the OP for MK cakes. I got a voicemail message that said to e-mail them with a set of info, which I did. I got this e-mail back today:
Quote:
Hello,
Thank you for your interest in the Magic Kingdom Cake Hotline. Please see the attached photos of cakes and respond to this email with an order based on the photos and following descriptions:
Our smallest traditional cake is our 6-inch round cake. This is available in either all vanilla or all chocolate and can be decorated with one of our Mickey Mouse medallions. This cake generally serves up to 6 people and costs $21.00 plus tax.
We also offer an 8-inch round cake on which we can screen print a Disney character of your choice. This is available in either vanilla or chocolate and we can personalize it with up to five (5) words. It typically serves 8 people and costs $47.00 plus tax ($32.00 without screenprint).
Another option is our 10-inch round cake with the same options, but it typically serves up to 16 people and costs $75.00 plus tax and gratuity ($45.00 without screen print).
Our Mickey Mouse head cake, which serves up to 10, is in the shape of Mickey’s Head (as the name implies) and is chocolate or vanilla with a dark chocolate ganache over top. We can personalize the serving plate with up to four (4) words. This costs $48.00 plus tax. We can also make this to look like Minnie Mouse’s Head for the same cost ($48.00 plus tax).
Please take a look over all of the information and let me know if you have any questions. Please note that we need your completed form at least 48-hours prior to your reservation. You will receive a confirmation email once your order has been placed.
Have a magical day!
Nowhere in the e-mail or the pictures is a custom/fondant covered cake mentioned. I'm a bit confused because we ordered a custom cake for Tony's in March without a problem, but at that time orders were going straight through the Contemporary not the hotline. Do I need to call the hotline again and leave a voicemail so they call me back? Should I contact the Contemporary directly as we did in March?

I got that same email back and was confused as well.

What I did was then email them and say "I'm actually looking for a custom cake" and went into detail about what I was looking for in that cake.

The person I was emailing with then conferred with the bakery and got back to me with a new quote.

Just wanted to update that I have been e-mailing back and forth with Theresa from the Epcot team and have finally decided on a 8" chocolate cake with a screen print of Pirate Mickey (originally wanted Jack Sparrow, but they couldn't do this) Will post some pics once we return.

I will be in wdw about a month before my dd 5th birthday, in which I will be ordering a cake for (2 trips a month and half apart). We will be getting it from the boardwalk bakery, can I talk to someone in person or do they only communicate via email and phone? I want a custom cake and would feel better talking to a real person.
