Hello all you cake experts.
Just wondering if anyone has had any better/quicker response time by e-mailing a cake request? I've read this entire thread and am disappointed about some of the service that Disney has given (or lack of service) over the phone.
Thanks!

My DD15 and I have a hobby of watching Ace of Cakes, and imaginign what kind of creations we'd have him do for us Not to mention, what her sweet 16 *should* be like (if I were Mrs Bill Gates )

Seriously, if I had no financial issues at all, I wouldnt hesitate to spend insane amounts on trivial things (I would also give, generously)

I say hopefully because this is a picture that the GF sent me to give me an idea of what they could do.

I told them I wanted it EXACTLY like the picture!! I just fell in love!
Our cake will have only two layers though. Other than that it should look the same.

There are only going to me 14 of us, and while we'll still have some wasted cake (maybe ) the 3 layers would have served about 75 people!
I don't even I could eat that much cake!
Ohhhh! This reminds me of my wedding cake. Our reception was at the Living Seas and it themed perfectly. You will love it. So detailed and it tastes good too!

I've read- ok I scanned for pictures mostly, and didn't see what I was looking for. Has anyone had a Tigger cake made? I'm thinking of trying to get one at MK delivered to dinner at Chrystal Palace. I will call and ask at the appropriate time, but I was just wondering if there were any pictures out there of Tigger cakes?

I thought I'd share this one with y'all too in case anyone need ideas for an Under the Sea type theme.

This is one WITHOUT the castle on top. Isn't it amazing how real those seahorses look!

Hmmm Baskin and Robin's has Pooh character cakes with all their Disney stuff, I'd find it odd if MK couldn't do Pooh stuff. I guess I'll just call and find out, eventually, I am not calling 10 months in advance.

I don't completely understand the exact reason, all I know is they will not put Pooh and friends on their cakes. It's been reported more than once here on the DIS. That is also what they told me when I ordered a cake at CRT for my birthday. Yes, I did order myself a cake!

They used to not do Pixar characters as well but I think since they now own Pixar they allow those characters. I did see someone with a Cars cake on this thread recently.

Disney has been in some kind of 'rights' battle regarding Pooh for awhile now. HERE is a story about their 16 year battle.

edted to add....I just found a GREAT page that has links to all the stories about this ongoing battle. LINK

Very interesting, they are allowed to have Pooh characters walking around the park, have a Winnie the Pooh ride, and yet they can't put a Pooh character on a cake? How weird is that? Oh well, maybe if we end up eating at the Crystal Palace Tigger can bring the cake out?

When I ordered all my cakes I specifically asked for Winnie and/or friends. They said any character except them... So, I ordered Minnie and Piglet brought it out.

HTH.

Who here likes fondant???

I've ordered an anniversary cake, 6" with white chocolate Mickey & Minnie on top. I loved the picture from earlier in this thread. It, like many cakes pictured in this thread, is covered in fondant. My only experience with fondant is when I tried to make it myself for DS's b'day cake one year. I didn't get it thin enough and it was very chewy. Obviously, Disney's pastry chefs are experts at this, but I've still read some comments that it doesn't taste good.

Please give me your opinion -- should I stick with the fondant as pictured with Mickey head stamps around the cake? Or should I opt for buttercream icing? I would think they can't stamp it, but could maybe do some type of icing floral design around the cake? Please help! If I'm going to spend $55 on a cake, I want it to be yummy!

bamagirl,

Is this the cake you are talking about?

I want to order this cake for DH and my anniversary.

If I'm not mistaken, there is buttercream icing underneath the fondant.

When you cut the cake, you can remove the fondant and just eat the buttercream icing.

I think the fondant is for appearance sake.

Although, some people do like the fondant.

I find it to be too sugary myself.

For some reason, the picture didn't show up on my previous post.

The cake I was referring to was on page 1, post #6.

Sorry for the mix-up!!!

That's the same cake, but not topper. The one I've ordered is on page 2, post #16, cake 15a. I hope it's as yummy as it is cute!
