Just want a simple nut/peanut-free cake at Disney World

This Sept. will be my family's third trip to Disney World and we will be there on my daughter's 9th birthday. We are trying to get a cake for her birthday. The only option that we have is a cake made from a Namaste mix, which has no wheat or dairy. Jessica's allergies are to peanuts, other legumes and tree nuts. I applaud all that Disney does to keep children with allergies safe and appreciate the difficulty of catering to a large number of people with multiple food allergies.  However, my daughter is used to traditionally prepared cakes. A Namaste cake would be a waste of money since no one would eat it and --my daughter being the emotional and sensitive kid that she is-- would ruin her birthday. She has tried all sorts of snacks (Enjoy Life etc.) that are wheat free and she does not like them.

I have spoken to the "cake hotline" and they have been no help. I am in contact with the special dietary person, but so far they are not much help either.

Anyone have suggestions? As a last resort, I can bring something into the park but it cannot need refrigeration and it must be something that I can either carry on the plane or have delivered and that does not require refrigeration.

Sometimes I just want to say "blah blah blah blah blah."

Do you have a particular place in mind for the birthday meal? Each restaurant in Disney has their own access to nut-free cakes. Call the chef of the restaurant you are going to directly.
Our experience with Disney has always been great.

As an aside, the namaste cakes are fantastic. I serve them all the time and my family does not know they are eating gluten-free.

Hi Ellen, I live in Orlando. You might want to contact Shelly with Libertybakeryonline. They are wheat/gluten/egg free also. They are local here. If they can't accomodate only peanut free, they may be able to give you some other contacts who can. Should I come across someone who may be able to help, I will post an update.
