    They put the cake back in the box in was delivered in by the bakery. I do not think it will last very long without refrigeration, though, due to the mousse filling. Even our all-buttercream anniversary cake was sad and mushy by Day 3. However, Bell Services could keep the cake in their fridge for you and deliver it when you want it. Not super-convenient, but... Alternatively, I'd bring Tupperware and divvy the cake up into smaller boxes that will fit in the minifridge.

    You'd need to call the resort for a definitive answer, but 10pm seems to be the cut-off time most places. Could you have it delivered the next day?

    Are the mini cakes (like the mini cakes in the pirate treasure chests) not offered any longer? My friend called to order them for our kiddos for our trip next week (at Whispering Canyon) and she was told those are no longer offered. We got one in late 2010 when our son was 3 and he LOVED it!

    The treasure chest cakes are no longer offered. I'm not sure when they were discontinued, but I looked into getting one last August and they didn't have them then. We also got one in 2010 and DD loved it. She had gotten the pink one and wanted to get the brown one too, but we were too late.

    Yeah, these were only available during Disney's "What Will You Celebrate?" campaign and were discontinued at its conclusion.

    Do you mean this mini-cake or...?

    How would you handle ordering a cake as a surprise for a friend. I have read that most people have to remind their server about the cake...

    When I ordered my sister her surprise birthday cake at GFC this past August, I told her to go look at the menu on the wall while I checked in and I mentioned it to the hostess then.

    I guess I just saw a lot of people mention it in their post how much is it?
    Also what is the average price of a two tired mini cake?

    The castle mini cake is $30 and available in chocolate with chocolate mousse filling, vanilla with white chocolate mousse filling, or cheesecake. Two-tier mini cakes run $35-$55 depending on the bakery and how elaborate the decorations are.

    That's what I figured. I guess I'll just ask or mention it when I call/email. Thanks!

    I'm going to call eventually and hope for the best. I found such cute ideas when doing a search of mickey/Minnie cakes and would rather surprise them with a "fancy" cake rather then the mickey head, which is still adorable. I'm hoping the Contemporary and Chef Brian will give the ok to have the cake picked up by AKL, but I see GF is a bit closer. Or actually, now that I think about it. I could just order the cake from the Boardwalk Bakery, and have it delivered to the POR, where we will be staying and just have the cake there.
    A couple questions.
    Since I don't know when we will be done with dinner, Do they just hold the cake there until you get back? If we have a 6:30 dinner and I ask for it to be there are 8, but come back a little late.
    Do most people take the fondant off their cake when you eat it? Were not fans, but those cakes are just so beautiful.

    I finally ordered DH's over the hill cake. Hope it comes out as awesome as I'm visualizing as its certainly expensive enough. :rotfl:

    I called CBR and they said they would deliver at 10pm but not too late after. Yay. I was worried we would end up carrying a cake through the park. Of course I will just call back sooner to our trip date in May to get the order made. Can't wait. Now til then I will be debating on what design I want to do. :)

    That's probably the easiest option, but you would not call BoardWalk Bakery to order it—you need to use the number listed for POR. Even though BWB delivers all over property, they don't take orders for these directly from guests. :thumbsup2

    They deliver it when you tell them to. If you come back late, it will be sitting out. If it's fondant, there won't be an issue, unless the AC in your room fails. Buttercream gets a little melty...

    At Disney weddings, the catering team usually removes the fondant to expose the buttercream underneath. I'm too lazy to take it off the cakes I get and just kinda scrape the cake and frosting outta the fondant ... or eat it!

    Do you know if they give you and email so you can send pictures of what you want, or do you have to try and explain it just by phone. If just by phone, I may try one of the other resorts and just hope the delivery fee isn't too much lol.


    That's what I'm worried about, I thought you'd pick it up in the food court, but if it's just in your room, i'm not sure i'd want to chance it. Trying one of the other resorts is looking better lol.
    Thanks for all the help.

    Hi Everyone

    I have gone through this thread, part 1,2 and 3 over the years and it has given me some fabulous ideas for cakes. I wanted to post a picture of my daughter's mini wedding cake that we ordered for her birthday. We went to Cinderella's Royal Table, I asked for "Pink and Girly". I wish I had a better picture to post because this cake really was beautiful.

    Yes, once you get to a real live person on the phone, you can ask for an email address that you can send photos to.

    Ok thank you! When it gets closer, I will just call around and see if other bakeries will deliver, if not, I'll just order from the boardwalk. Thanks for all the help!
