I just ordered a GF/CF cake for my birthday when we go at the end of January. The cake will be delivered to our hotel room at the Wilderness Lodge (coming from the WL bakery). The dietary cakes seem to only come in one size: 6 inch. It comes either in chocolate or vanilla. The cost at the time of this post and quoted to me by IPO is $29.50 (I was originally quoted $21, but this was for a regular 6 inch cake). According to IPO, they take the requests ahead of time, but order them 1 week prior to your request date. I’m excited for the cake and can’t wait to share my review.
If you are ordering a special diets cake, you will want to contact IPO if you are staying Club Level or call the Cake Hotline. Their number is: 407-827-2253. This phone will ask you a lot of questions to get you to the bakery you need to get to. I recommend you call ahead of time, but be prepared for some difficulties. I tried multiple times to call the cake hotline and was routed to different bakeries. I originally wanted a cake at California Grill, but had such difficulty getting a hold of anyone, that I went with the Wilderness Lodge where we are staying. I even emailed Brenda Bennett at Special Diets; she forwarded my requests on, but I never heard from them. I’m not saying every experience is this problematic–I’ve heard some wonderful things from others–but be prepared to not get an instant response.
I’m under the impression that you can get these cakes that are GF/CF at most locations. This cake is also soy free, but does contain eggs. According to IPO: “You will need to put a credit card down on the cake request however they will not charge until the day of for room service and at the location if you choose to have the cake at one of the restaurant.”
