    Wow - that is just so well done! CR does such nice work. I do like how the fondant keeps everything sealed and fresh!

    I had the same problem - I wanted my birthday dinner at CRT a few weeks ago, but the new cake rules went into effect the month before, so I spent the day (and night) at MK, but we walked over to the Contemporary and had dinner at Chef Mickey's. Not my favorite dinner buffet (I love going there for breakfast) but I wanted to work with the Contemporary vs. The Grand Floridian (where we were staying and where my favorite dinner buffet - 1900 - is) since I've read the nightmares of dealing with the GF team when it comes to custom cakes. It ended up being a good birthday - I'm still not crazy about the dinner options at Chef Mickey's, but my kids loved it and my cake - posted a few pages back - was gorgeous! They boxed it up for us and we took the monorail around to drop our cake off at GF before going back to MK until closing.

    We ended up doing the 6" vanilla cake at CRT on 1/14. It was for my DD's birthday. I brought my own icing to write on the cake and personalize it. :)

    It worked out well. I was first bummed because I love doing a really special cake for birthdays. But, it was yummy (I am GF but that is what everyone said) and for I think $23- I did not feel bad leaving the rest of it behind (ate about 3/4) since I knew there would be no time for leftovers. And I did not want to carry it around all evening. My DD was thrilled with having a cake in WDW :)

    Thank you for posting this! I was really disappointed because my daughter does not like chocolate and all the CRT special desserts are now chocolate. But we are also doing the fireworks dessert party the night of her birthday and that appears to have a vanilla cake option so I am going to email now about that! Seems silly to pay ANOTHER $15 on top of the price of that party, but at least it will be something that she will love, and we can always take it back to our room at the Contemporary after the dessert party and eat it there if we are full from the party desserts which is much easier than carrying a leftover melting chocolate slipper around from lunch at CRT in the heat in June.

    update on the above post: I did call in the morning & speak to the CM that originally called me about my cake order. She was willing to talk to the bakers about my request for a 6" lemon cake with blackberry mousse filling. The baker said they could do a vanilla cake soaked with lemon simple syrup with buttercream colored like Ursula & white pearls to look like tentacles for $10 extra. I assumed no blackberry filling since it did sound like they were modifying a pre-made cake. We're still deciding now that we finally have an answer on what can be done by Boardwalk.

    I had the same exact experience today - I guess they are diverting all calls from the number listed on Post 2 to the Boardwalk Cake Hotline, which was 407-939-6355.

    Called to see what options I have for a mini cake for my upcoming trip. I left a message and will wait for someone to call back. We are going for Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon weekend, so I'm hoping to surprise my mom with a Star Wars "inspired" cake (no characters or anything) after we do the 5K that Friday. I'll post about how the conversation goes once they call back!

    That CP cake sounds fantastic! But I wouldn't want to order a cake to a buffet. :(

    I'm in the processing of ordering an anniversary cake for my wife to be served after dinner at the Yachtsman. I am going with a fondant cake but was looking for people's opinion on buttercream vs white chocolate mousse with strawberries.

    Hey everyone! If I need 2 customized cakes for my trip, should I get in contact with them more than 2 weeks in advance just to make sure nothing gets messed up? Also, I've only really seen 1 or 2 photos of goofy cakes. Anyone have any pics of some??

    Here is what i got for BOG. It was yummy! Three kinds of cupcakes, some grey stuff in a white chocolate rose...It was $15 and I ordered it several weeks ahead of time and it was delivered right to our table! My cousin loved it...

    Yes, I'd start maybe a month out. The trouble comes when people place an order 6 months ahead, don't check up on it a few days before their trip, and then find out at the restaurant that no one had their order.

    Hi, love this thread and all the information that comes with it. We're going to be at Disney for my daughter's birthday on June 13. We're staying from June 11th-16th at AKL Kidani Village. We're scheduled to eat at BOG and Crystal Palace on her birthday for lunch and dinner, and we've got reservations for the 14th at Trattoria al Forno for the new character breakfast. My debate is where and when to order her a special small cake. I haven't seen any pictures of the honey crunch cake from Crystal Palace. I don't know if I should order from the resort and have something delivered to our room or try to have something ordered for the breakfast and be able to maybe get a mini cake from the Boardwalk Bakery. My daughter loves all sweets but especially chocolate, and I don't want to order a larger cake cause it's only the four of us going. We're already on the dining plan and will be eating all the desserts that come with it. I've ordered a chocolate birthday slipper from CRT before, but that is the only experience I've had with special desserts. Any advice is appreciated
