    So, my feeling about this is exactly what @KrazeeK120 said...

    For example, when you get a cake and then use Tables In Wonderland, they automatically apply an 18% gratuity to your ENTIRE bill, including the cake (if you weren't pre-charged for it), even though the pastry team never sees that 18%, nor would the "runner" who brought it over, in your case. I've only ever asked a restaurant manager to reduce this auto-gratuity once, on principle (waiter plunked the cake down, we cut it ourselves), and they were happy to do it. But I felt like a jerk.... :sad2:

    Thank you so much for your thoughts on this @lurkyloo! (I consider you the Disney cake expert!) What @KrazeeK120 said makes sense to me, too. We paid the suggested amount in the past because we were told to and weren’t sure exactly to whom the cake tip would go. (It makes me a bit saddened that the pastry team—or even the runner—doesn’t get it.) However, not having to pay an 18% tip on a $165 cake sounds good to me.:thumbsup2

    Just got two amazing mini cakes delivered to our room at the Beach Club Resort. The first was a graduation cake to celebrate my daughters college graduation coming up in December. It was almond cake with almond crunch filling. The second was an awesome engagement cake to celebrate my daughter and her now fiancé that got engaged this week in front of Cinderella’s castle. The engagement cake was chocolate with chocolate buttercream filling. I will keep trying to post pictures. I get an error that the fie is two large.

    We are visiting December 8-17 and will be celebrating our youngest son's High School graduation early while there. I'd like to order a cake for one of our dinners while there but am not crazy about the Disney Floral and Gifts cakes. Where are people getting the cute decorated cakes that I see picture of? :confused3

    All of the information to order any custom awesome cake is listed in the first two posts of this very thread. The same information is also available at DisneyTravelBabble.com created by the amazing @lurkyloo who also runs this thread

    Preparing to order a cake. My son will turn 21 while there. He has severe autism and other conditions; so cognitively he’s about 7. When trying to get ideas for his cake he was super excited (he is verbal). First it was Goofy, then Tarzan with elephants (??), then Nemo, next Aladdin and finally Hercules! He also loves the mops again -??)

    Probably easiest to chat by phone to order theme they have had success. Then I started to wonder... before I make a fool of myself on the phone by asking...
    Does anyone know or seen or purchased a cake with multiple screen print images either directly applied or on the chocolate typically used to stand on top, used on the SIDES of a cake? It may not be most beautiful but would love to put 3 or 4 images on the sides and somehow tie together with something on top of the cake...I welcome ideas, maybe a Mickey...

    yeah, I know if even possible will likely look odd, but seeing him happy is most important.

    I don’t want a huge multi-tier cake. An 8 or 10 inch cake will allow for plenty of sharing.

    Hello everyone! I've been lurking and getting some ideas for my DD's 3rd birthday cake. She wants a Rapunzel cake and liked a picture of a round cake with Rapunzel on top with her braid coming down. We are staying at Contemporary and have dinner at Chef Mickey's on her birthday December 19th. I called the number given here and promptly received a return phone call from George. It seemed to go well. I explained I wanted a 6 inch cake with frosting, with 2D Rapunzel on top and braid coming down, flowers in braid and my budget was $75-100. He said he thought he knew what I meant and that it would probably be more in the range of $106-$118. I said that was fine even though I thought it was kind of high for what I was asking. I also told him I had some pictures I could send him. He gave me his email and said we could communicate that way after this initial phone call. He also said I could let him know in the email if I wanted vanilla, chocolate or marble cake, and choice of fillings were buttercream, chocolate mousse, white choc mousse, raspberry mousse or strawberry mousse.

    Here's where I start to lose a little hope. I emailed George with subject <last name, December 19th> I told him it was a pleasure speaking with him, and I was attaching two pictures, explained what I wanted from each, told him I chose vanilla and strawberry mousse, asked for his feedback and thanked him. This is the response I got: " When is this for? What is your budget?"

    Oh boy, maybe he was just busy, so I gave a rundown again of our conversation and...no response. I'm hoping this isn't an indication of how the cake is going to go! Anyway, I'm interested to see what he comes back with after seeing the pics I sent. I'd also like to ask for "pixie dust" on the cake. DD also wants a little Pascal on it but I'm not sure if they would do that? I love looking at everyone's cakes...thanks for sharing!

    i hope it turns out how you want :) my only suggestion: since you’re saying the cake is already pushing your budget, it might be worth considering picking up your own little pascal figurine (online, party store, maybe even a dollar store if you’re lucky?). you can slip it to the server and ask if they’ll add it to the side of the cake for you?

    looking forward to seeing how your cake turns out!

    Thanks! It's not necessarily too much per se, just too much for what I was asking for. I'm just going by pictures of cakes and costs I see posted here. I would think a cake for $118 could include a small pascal, especially since I am not asking for a fondant cake. I was just unsure if they could replicate Pascal...seems talk on here is they don't really like to do 3D characters, or maybe I should ask for a generic green chameleon ;)
