My experience ordering my mom’s Birthday Cake on Cathay Pacific
I’d read long long ago about One Mile at a Time ordering a birthday cake for one of his folks’ bday while flying. I absolutely loved the idea and bookmarked it in my head. Currently you can order on Emirates, Cathay Pacific, and Singapore Air. I’m currently on a surprise trip around the world for my mom’s birthday. She has no idea where she’s going until she gets her boarding pass. It’s so amazing watching her reaction as she finds out each location. Thus far on the trip she’s flown Cathay Pacific First Class and Singapore Suites. While I tried to have a cake delivered in Singapore Suites I was denied because her birthday is in March, but we are taking the trip in April. My experience ordering my mom’s Birthday Cake on Cathay Pacific was very easy and here’s how to do it.
The cost is listed on the Cathay Pacific website.
Once you have your reservation you simply call in and order it. 1 (800) 233-2742
I approached the gate right before we were to board and asked if I could specify arrangements.
I was put in contact with the cabin manager, May, and we sorted out exactly when it would happen.
Right after my mom was finished eating, May came back to business and invited me up to present her with the cake.
I have the entire video on my GoPro and will edit together, but her reaction was priceless.
It was truly delicious. My mom has raved about it ever since 🙂
I wasn’t really sure what to expect in terms of quality. I knew it’d be a full cake from other pictures online, but it was incredible. Later on in the flight I was invited up again to eat more cake with my mom. HOW COOL!
