You can order birthday cakes and other refreshments from the Wisconsin Union. If you'd prefer to bring in a cake, it must be prepared by a licensed baker. We are not able to provide plates or utensils for cakes brought in from outside retailers, nor can we provide cooler space for outside food due to food safety guidelines.
