Thanks to all who gave me some help/ideas with cake ordering. Just hear back from Brian this morning. He quoted me $75, ten dollars higher than my budget, but, oh well. It will be an It's a Small World cake. I found a picture on the original cake gallery thread and he'll go from that. Vanilla with vanilla custard filling. They are accommodating our peanut allergy. We'll have it delivered to the room at BLT upon check in. This has been really easy and fun so far. I'd like to post a picture of the cake that I drew inspiration from, but I don't know how.

Loved this cake and it was so good! I forgot to take a close up shot until after I had already cut into it, but it was beautiful. The people sitting next to us were in love with it too!





I LOVE this cake! Going for my bday next year and I am thinking this is a must do!

Paste the code, including the [IMG] tags, into a post and voila!

I want to order my DD a specialty cake to celebrate her graduation. I was planning on having it delivered to our dinner at Be Our Guest, but now I've read that I can't get a specialty cake delivered to BOG. Anyone know for sure if I can or cannot get a specialty cake for our BOG dinner?

Because the thread is closed, you can't just quote it, copy the quote and paste it here. You could right-click and save the pic to your computer, then upload it to Photobucket and post it that way.

Or, if you just want to link us to the post containing the photo, click on the little #[X] number of the post in the upper right-hand corner to open just that post in a new tab/window, and then copy that link and paste it here.

People are being told no right now, probably because they're still figuring out operation of the restaurant and maybe because of the whole counter-service-to-table-service arrangement. But that doesn't mean they mightn't eventually offer delivery to BOG. I say keep checking—if they do change the policy, you can order as few as 48 hours before the date you need it.

Received a call from Private Dining this morning. (Very surprising for a Sunday) They wanted to go over my order, because they had some questions.
I ended up with a white two tiered chocolate cake with chocolate filling. It will also include a white chocolate Cinderella's Castle.
Total Cost - $50
Not the - $63 that I was originally quoted.

We are so happy with the cake that Pat and the crew at GF came up with for our DS's birthday. I ordered a 6 in. yellow cake with vanilla buttercream filling. I simply asked for a surfing Stitch theme and left it up to them. Here is what was delivered:

The cost was $66 and we are so pleased with what that got us. We expected the 2D white chocolate Stitch on a surf board but the painted white chocolate palm tree and all of the seashells were a very pleasant surprise. And the cake is delicious!!

Has anyone seen any pics of cakes done at disney with a disney transportation theme? My little guy will be celebrating his bday at WDW and LOVES all things that have to do with the monorail, buses, trams, trains and boats. My husband and I always joke that next time we shouldn't bother with park tickets we could just ride disney transpo all week and my son would be trilled!

The Contemporary has a white chocolate monorail for about 50 bucks. Maybe they could put it atop a blue cake with boats around the sides or something like that...? Heck, maybe your son would be happy with just the monorail!

When I spoke to Chef Brian, he said they can't combine themes or add it to a cake. The monorail amenity has to stay separate and can't venture away from how they sell it -- truffles and all.

small world cake

Here is a link to the small world cake the Contemporary will be making for my daughter's birthday. I've asked them to somehow incorporate the boat into it as well. Really excited. She's going to be so surprised.

So I'm surprising DH with a birthday trip at the end of February. I've been eyeing these cake threads for over a year, and I'm quite tempted!

Can they do the flavor fillings in the 6" cakes? The raspberry looks amazing, but it's just the two of us on this trip.

I keep seeing gratuity costs mentioned with the final costs of the cakes. Is the gratuity added automatically and what percentage is it, or is it at the orderer's discretion?
