I've been scanning all of these posts/pages and haven't seen anything so thought I'd toss it out there:

My daughters' birthdays are 2.5 weeks apart, and our visit in late April falls smack between their birthdays so am thinking about getting them a cake to surprise them. Has anyone seen a "split" cake done where it's two different designs? e.g. one half is Moana and the other is Inside Out? Just as an example. (I don't even know if they do Inside Out cakes...) Or seen any fun ways to have a cake to celebrate two different birthdays?

thanks!
I believe I was denied an inside out cake when I tried in 2018. But that was for a California grill delivery not sure if another bakery will.

Longtime lurker first time poster! Doing it specifically for this board!

So in a few months, not until May, I'm heading on a trip with my cousin and her daughter, who will be turning 8. She's also the oldest of six, so cousin and I have decided to make this birthday trip extra special for her. (She doesn't get a lot of things that are just hers and she's a wonderful kid!)

I want to surprise the birthday girl and her mom both with a cake but I'm going back and forth about whether to do it at a meal or in room. We're staying at POR and I haven't seen many posts about getting cakes there. I know I'd be working with Boardwalk.

I'd be hoping to do a mini cake, as we're only three! Birthday girl is a big Descendants fan, so maybe leaning that way as for theme. Would love any suggestions!

Right now the easiest pastry team to work with is Yacht & Beach Club, so if you're dining at any of the restaurants there, that'd be your best bet. Next easiest is the Grand Floridian, which delivers to all the restaurants at the GF (except Victoria & Albert's) and the Polynesian. They're stricter on flavors, though. Having to work through POR could end up being kind of a drag, if you can avoid it!

    Ordered years ago for DD 9th birthday, and heading back soon for her 16th.

    Tried scrolling through all the pages, looked on pinterest, etc. , but am looking for pics of the following themes:

    1. Anything french inspired - maybe with Minnie, macarons, etc.
    2. Anything themed with the four parks, with or without monorail
    3. Anything themed with the mickey head balloons

    Thanks for any pics that anyone has to share.

    This is a cake we got at Disneyland, but I thought you might be interested to see the differences....

    For one thing, Disneyland has started offering pre-designed cakes in specific themes, including ones we can't get at Walt Disney World, like Star Wars. However, they are only available three places—Carthay Circle Restaurant, Blue Bayou and Napa Rose—and they cannot be delivered to your room. I have complete details in Post #1 of this thread, but here are the available themes:
    • Mickey
    • Minnie
    • Star Wars
    • Princess
    • Frozen
    • Ariel
    • Cars
    • Haunted Mansion

    In classic Disney fashion, they don't actually have any photos of these themes to show you when you email to place an order. So here's what Disneyland's Star Wars Cake looks like:






















    • Price: $65
    • Size: 6-inch
    • Theme: Star Wars
    • Flavor: Churro (Cinnamon sponge with cinnamon churro filling)
    • Location: Napa Rose
    You guys, this cake tasted AWFUL! Disneyland uses Chantilly buttercream instead of the traditional buttercream that WDW uses, but I don't think that accounts for the waxy texture and complete lack of flavor. The cake itself barely tasted like cinnamon or churros or whatever, and the filling was equally flavorless. I have never, ever thrown out leftover cake without at least taking one last bite, but this time I did!

    About the only bright spot was that Napa Rose served it to us with free scoops of ice cream, so that's something! But we are SO lucky that Walt Disney World cakes taste as good as they do!

    WOW! This looks great and seems reasonably priced, but taste is a dealbreaker! Thanks for sharing!!
