Cake at HDDR?

Hi!! I tried searching the boards, and looked through some of this thread, but couldn't find any mention of cake at HDDR.

Is it possible to do cake or anything else special for a birthday at HDDR? We'll be there for dinner on our first night... it is our honeymoon and my fiance's birthday is the week of our wedding and is bound to get a little buried in all the prep and excitement...so I'd like to do something special for him at WDW, and the first night would be ideal.

If not, I could always have one waiting in our room at WL when we get back, I suppose.

Thanks!

Does anyone have any photo ideas of an Alice mini cake? I've only seen Mad Hatter style cakes, but I'd rather do something with Alice and the flower garden for my soon-to-be 3 year old. Thanks!

My 30th Birthday Cake

Finally getting around to post a photo for my 30th birthday cake which I had made for our vacation in early September.

Size: 8 inch

Flavor: Chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream filling covered in vanilla buttercream and then topped with fondant

Cost: $230 ($115 was the added cost to have a fully hand-painted Donald Duck white chocolate figurine rather than a gold-touched white Donald Duck - so price would have been $115 with just the gold touched Donald on top)

Location: YC/BC Private Dining - delivered directly to our BCV

Review: This was one amazing cake. The best part was the fully hand painted Donald. I assumed the white parts of the Donald (his tail, parts of his face, etc.) would not be painted but just left as white chocolate. Instead he was entirely painted, so the white parts of him were a true white instead of a cream white. Tons of attention was paid to detail - the grass around his feet was even shaded to look more realistic and the tiny sliver of tongue in his open mouth was painted red. I brought plastic food containers with me and was able to save him and bring him home with me. As for the cake itself, the pastry team did a wonderful job with the theme - I was so impressed. I also like that they took it upon themselves to add the 30 gold numbers onto the cake. The cake tasted very fresh, but it was so rich that it was difficult to eat more than a tiny slice at a time.

Sorry for the large size of the photo!

Yes, see post 2 on the first page for the Fort Wilderness number. Since HDDR is at that resort they should be able to help you.

Wow! That's the best hand-painted white chocolate figure I've seen yet!

Hi I was just wondering if anyone could give me any ideas... We will be in Disney World Jan-24 till Feb 1 and we kind of have three birthdays to celebrate. My oldest daughter turns 11 a few days before we get there, my youngest daughter turns 6 while there and I turn 35 feb 2 the day after we leave. We have reservations every night throughout our trip and CRT on my girls sixth bday. How should we go about getting cakes? I think three would be a little much and I don't want our other kids left out. I am almost thinking a mini cake (themed with the white aristocat?) if they do that and five themed cupcakes for everyone else. All at CRT. Do they do themed cupcakes? I was figuring that way no one would be left out. Any other suggestions would be great.

I tried calling the GF number again yesterday evening at 7.20pm, my Sister and I were at the resort pool and hubby was in the room, and Pat actually picked up the phone! I didn't push the Star Wars issue. I am going with a golf theme for hubby for his Birthday. Pat quoted me $66, it will be chocolate with raspberry filling. Lurkyloo - I'll use your tip for a replica anniversary cake if/when we are here celebrating our anniversay, thanks!

That is an awesome Donald! He's my favorite of the Fab Five so it makes me smile to see such loving detail and work put into that figure of him. Wish I had the budget to splurge on something like that!

Hope someone might be able to help? We've just booked a trip for November and I'm wanting to order a themed fondant cake to be delivered during our meal. I think we'll probably be booking a meal at Kona at the Poly. To get a cake delivered there is it the Contemporary that I have to email? Or should I phone first? Thanks for any help

No, the Grand Floridian provides cakes for the Polynesian, and they do not offer an email address for ordering cakes. Call Private Dining at the GF using the number listed in Post #2 of this thread.

That's great, Thank you !!

Do you think they'd be able to do something along the lines of it being Wilderness Lodge themed? Going to nosey on google for some ideas

Sure! It does help to have lots of photos, though, if you have something very specific in mind.
