We had this cake made for our July anniversary by Chef Brian at the California Grill. It was approximately 80.00, but they took the TIW discount off with our meal, and honestly it was worth every penny! It served more than 4, I'd say at least 8-10 servings, possibly more. It was delicious, and they made it exactly as I asked.

Those cakes look great.

I ordered a cake for DS birthday in December. It looked great and tasted even better. I need to upload the picture to this thread.

Wondering why DH signature is Tinkerbell? While at Hoop de Doo Revue he was the Fairy(and a big one). So if all you kids are wondering who tinkerbell is?, it is him.

I ordered a custom cake from the GF last week. First of all, it took a week for private dining to return my call. Then, I was only given the choice of chocolate or vanilla cake (we wanted almond) and a few fillings (our first choice, amarretto mousse, wasn't available). We ordered an indian-inspired cake that comes in pink/gold but asked to have the colors changed to turquoise/pink. When we received the cake, it was the horrific ivy green/light pink that you find on old ladies floral sofas. Ummmm...not at all what we asked for, and nothing that anyone with any sense would put on an indian themed cake! The cake itself was too sweet and chemically tasting, like you would get at walmart. Maybe it was something in the mousse or the strawberries, but we ended up throwing half of it away. For $160 PLUS 18% automatic gratuity on an 8" cake, I expected much more. Publix will be getting my business from now on!

Has anyone had any experience getting a strawberry shortcake somewhere in Disney? We are going for my wife's birthday in October and that is her favorite. I think we are going to do dinner at the royal table and would want it delivered there.

I had the most incredibly adorable cake made for our anniversary dinner at Le Cellier one year. I called the Epcot dining number and sent them an email with a picture of the cake I wanted. They sent me a number of sketches with prices, and the chosen one came out beautifully. It was delicious! Big enough for about a dozen people, though.

The icing was fondant over buttercream with a vanilla cake. The mickey ears were chocolate and the balls on top were fondant. Soooo yummy.

The cakes sure sound yummy, but I can't imagine spending more on a cake than I would normally spend on a meal (at home). $70+ for an 8" cake is a lot, even by Disney's standards (or maybe I'm just cheap!)

The Boardwalk Bakery usually has them. I would just call ahead to make sure
a cake is ready when you are.
