That's a cute cake! Sounds like everyone enjoyed the cake too! And, you DS certainly looks pleased with his cake! And, in the end, that's all that really counts!

Thanks for sharing! Karen

my daughters 14th birthday mini cake at Crystal Palace breakfast we asked for vanilla cake with chocolate mousse filling and the 2 layers to be mismatched (one green with pink the other pink with green) since she is all into mismatched socks and shoes etc.

Finally got pics of Melody's cake
She requested a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake, with figures.
I ordered it for Chef Mickey's, so worked with Brian at Contemporary bakery
We asked for
6" Marble cake
Chocolate Buttercream under the fondant
White Chocolate Mouse filling w/fresh strawberries
Cost, $85

I brought the figures and the staff put them on before delivering the cake



It was delivered perfectly and Melody loved it.
Sadly, even though I planned it so we had a week to eat on it, we never had more of it. Well, I did have 1 slice on another day but that's it. So we left most of it behind.

While I'm posting birthday food things we ordered, here is her Chocolate Slipper from CRT (she laid the Wishing Star on the berries)

I'm really torn, I want to get a cake for our 2yr wedding anniversary during our illuminations cruise I have booked. We will be on free dining and in day 4 out of 9 and am not sure what size to get! Our DFTW cake went to waste as there was just so much so don't want wastage but wonder if the two tier mini cake is too small! Is there something in between this and the 6 inch? Should I get two mini cakes but is this cost effective? Any suggestions

I am so happy to hear about the figurines.

I am hoping to have test track figurines added to the strawberry shortcake cake at Via Napoli for DD's 8th birthday.

We have had other cakes from disney and I think this is one we would actually eat! LOL She LOVES Test Track and has requested to ride on her birthday (they get to plan their day)

I think the figurines added would be a great way to do this but I wasnt sure if we had to wait until it was at the table to add them. That would ruin the surprise. Has anyone done this at Via Napoli?


Also Lurkey Loo I saw yout Tower of Terror event and it was amazing. In it you talked about the epcot locations being cheaper. is there a link to that anywhere? I am planning on a special something for our 10th anniversary and I would love more info.

Thanks
Heidi
Thank You

I don't think they provide photos of most of the cakes they do. Some people send in photos for inspiration. Others send in detailed sketches. For the most part, it's sight unseen. Your cake is simple enough that I think he'll do an amazing job with it.

How many people will be eating it?
Regardless, in your situation, I'd probably go with at least a 6 inch. Two mini cakes would probably cost as much ($35 each) and you still wouldn't get quite as much cake. You also will have less possibility to customize a mini cake.

Howdy y'all! I've been lurking this thread for months now and I recently went to Walt Disney World for my 21st birthday! I didn't want to surprise myself with a cake, so I didn't order one! I had NO idea that my mother would order one for me! She later told me that she didn't want me complaining about not getting a cake!!

We stayed at the Beach Club and I chose to eat at Cape May Cafe for my birthday dinner (I LOVE seafood, so this choice was easy!)

I thought my server was being a little awkward, but I never imagined it was because she knew a big secret! LOL, they were hiding my cake in the back...



THIS is my cake! When my server Joyce came out, she announced to the whole restaurant that it was my 21st birthday, and literally everyone in there sang happy birthday to me! I was in shock!

It was a 8 inch yellow cake, with some sort of RUM flavored filling. Fondant covered with a white chocolate Cinderella on top.
I cannot for the life of me find my book with the receipt from dinner but I believe it was $35 for the cake and $25 for the cake topper. I must note we have Tables in Wonderland and they DID take 20% off the cake as well as the meal. I don't know if thats the norm? but they did that.

It was so delicious and moist. The fondant was even good!

Hey guys! I ordered a slipper dessert for my 1900 Park Fare ressie and the girl I ordered it from said it would be milk chocolate because that's the standard...I thought standard was white chocolate? Doesn't make much difference to me, the birthday girl will still love it but white chocolate is her favorite so I'm curious!

Thanks Lurkyloo, but we are having our anniversary at The Shades of Green gazebo, where no one delivers to....but I did find a personal shopper who will pick one up from the Boardwalk Bakery for me and deliver it to SoG for me. I'm just wondering though....DH LOVES buttercream frosting, but I'm afraid it'll melt in the transportation, so I guess I'll have to go with the fondant over the buttercream.....I can't remember, is it pretty easy to peel off?

I'm with you, I think White Chocolate is the norm, but you can order milk chocolate if you like. If you want White Chocolate, I'd call and let them know. I ordered the White Chocolate for Afternoon Tea at the GF with my sister and had them put buttercream flowers in it, it was really pretty.

I absolutely ADORE cake (well, OK, frosting) and have a high tolerance for sweets, but even I can only eat half a Disney minicake. I think you will be fine with a minicake for two people. If you get a 6-inch fondant cake, it's huge. We had one for 6 people at our IllumiNations party and didn't even eat half of it.

Yes! I have IllumiNations dessert party planning info HERE, and the report of how our party turned out HERE.

I'm with Scrappy_Tink—white chocolate is the standard; if that's what you want, call back and request it.

It is pretty easy to peel off, unless you get a minicake, which requires so much scraping that you might as well just eat the fondant. (It's pretty tasty these days!) And there's usually plenty of buttercream underneath.

Wow! Ok any idea how much it is to rent the bamboo room at Brown Derby? I have a thing about old Hollywood and that would be pretty amazing.
Also is there a link somewhere about the private dining options in Epcot?
Thanks so much
Heidi
