I had trouble with Chef Brian combining items as well. I called Pat at Grand Floridian and she said it was no problem. Not sure on where you are eating, but I changed our location to get the cake I wanted.

Thank you - we're staying at the Contemporary and having it delivered to the room first thing in a.m. I would've liked done what I requested -- but understand he can't, so I'm just going to order the cake and I'm sure DH will love it.

The cake I have a quote for is a 6" cake with white chocolate mouse and fresh strawberry filling. It's being done by Contemporary bakery

When our cake was brought out at Crystal Palace there was not an automatic gratuity added to our check. However, since the cost of the cake was included in our total bill I did still feel obligated to tip for it.

That's odd. I've seen a white chocolate monorail on a cake w/o truffles. I thought it was from the Contemporary, but I could be wrong.

An 18% gratuity is added when you have the cake delivered to your room by Private Dining (just like when you have any other room service meal).

The only time gratuity is automatically added on a cake at a restaurant is when you use the Tables In Wonderland discount card, which triggers an automatic 18% tip. I think I'd probably ask to have the gratuity on the cake removed and just tip on the meal, though, since it's not like the server made the cake...

That must be a fairly recent thing... I just found three made by the Contemporary in the last Cake Thread, including two that look like this...




....and one that looked like this!

Yeah, Coronado does its own thing with the cakes—they aren't the same kind you'll find everyplace else on property. How much you like them depends on whether you like whipped cream frosting (vs. buttercream).

The flavor choices are chocolate mousse, strawberry shortcake, carrot cake (with 72 hours’ notice), mixed berry, and Oreo cookie. Complete details are in Post #2. Here are shots of the small versions of some of them for sale at the quick-service place in the main building.

Hmmm I'm going to re-email Brian with those pics and see if something can be done. Maybe its because I'm only getting a 6" cake? I also requested he just do the monorail but without the truffles and instead add some gravestones and skulls and he said he couldn't.

For DH's birthday last week at Narcoossee's I was able to order a 6" chocolate cake with custard and fresh strawberries filling. There was an upcharge for that filling instead of the standard one, but it was delicious I also upgraded the normal frosting to dark chocolate ganache.... yummy!

The cakes in the photos look to be at least 8 inches, if not 10, so hopefully it's just a matter of size.

In light of the fatal monorail accident a few years ago, I can see how Disney would shy away from that one...

My husband will turn 40 on our trip this year over Spring Break. We are having dinner at Ohana that night, staying at the poly. I feel like I'm going blind looking at this thread for ideas. He likes cars, so I was thinking maybe a cars themed cake? Anyone have any suggestions about thier favorite cake combinations? I throw myself at the mercy of this awesomely experienced thread - help me make a decision!
