Definitely! OP, if you're OK with carrying the cake in yourself, that would be a good solution.

Just finished placing my order with Janet from Pop Century. She was wonderful to work with - very quick to respond. I ended up getting an 8-inch carrot cake with mocha mousse and vanilla buttercream. It'll be covered in fondant, Mulan-themed based off the photos I sent of similar cakes that I found online. It'll have a standing piece of white chocolate with Mulan's image on it. I was quoted $85.

Will definitely post photos. I can't wait to see it (and the look on my sister's face)!

we have dealt with Pat at the Grand Floridian twice now in the last three months and she has been incredible; very friendly and pulled off a minor miracle with a birthday cake and peanut butter cup filling that was to die for!

we've ordered a yule log cake for a gathering at the Chef's Domaine next month - I will try to remember to come back and post a few pictures once we're home after the holidays.

The guest will be responsible for storing the cake. You cannot have the location store the cake for you.

Well, she was asking about a mini cake, so I guess they possibly won't have leftovers or don't mind taking it with them. I don't think it would be too hard to keep up with the cake for a short time, prior to the meal.

Would it be over kill to get a special cake for a dinner at Victoria and Albert's? Originally we were going to eat at Narcossee's so I was going to order the mini wedding cake for DH and I but he surprised me by booking V&A. Since the meal and dessert are so intense there, I am thinking the special cake should wait until the next trip right?

We ordered one for our anniversary when we dined there a couple of years ago. Just had them package it up for us and it was breakfast for the remainder of our stay at the resort - cakes from the V&A Bakery are a special kind of tasty!

Can I ask how much it was and what you ordered and who you ordered it with?

Keep in mind it's been about 5 years since we did this, but I called V&A directly and told them I wanted a cake for our anniversary; they gave me a couple of options to choose from ... we ended up with an 8-inch vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling and frosting; it was then covered with a white / dark chocolate swirled coating and decorated with dark and white chocolate curls and an edible chocolate scroll.

Delicious and it was only $35.

If you want something more custom-designed they will probably refer you to the Grand Floridian bakery, which is where the wedding cakes are created. You should probably contact them at least two weeks prior to your dining reservation to give them enough time to work with.

Hope this helps!

Celestial Mickey Cake

We had our cake delivered for our dessert at Cali Grill back on Nov 16th. The cake was a surprise for my younger one's 4th bday. It's an 8" chocolate cake with raspberry mousse and cream cheese filling + chocolate buttercream. The cake was really yummy! Cost = $137



















HUGE THANKS TO CHEF BRIAN and CREW for ANOTHER AMAZING CAKE!!!

I remember your sketches a few pages back. What a fantastic job they did. Love your cake design. Happy B-day to your little one.

I emailed Chef Brian about a cake for my DD birthday dinner at CRT the second week of December (I attached a picture of one I liked). He sent me a picture back of their princess package cake, which I really didn't want.

I emailed him back a different Ariel cake I really liked that I found on this thread and I have not heard back from him yet, it's been a few days. How long does it normally take to hear back?

Thanks for any help, this is my first time ordering a specialty cake.

I would give him about a week to 10 days depending how close you are to your travel dates before you try to e-mail him again - it gets crazy busy especially at this time of year. Sometimes I would get an answer in the same day, other times it would take a little over a week.

He does take a couple of days off during the week. You might try emailing again, but if you don't hear back soon - you can always call the Contemporary #. I had that happen to me back in October...called and found out Chef Brian was on vacay when I'd emailed...hence the delay. Still, if you've waited a reasonable amount of time and you're getting worried, you might get some peace of mind by calling. Good luck!

Thanks! She was so happy with her cake too. It was her preferred dessert for the next few days!
