Now they seem to be told they have to arrange to transport it themselves, but, hey, it's free!

If you have a private reception arranged with DFTW as an add on to the Escape package, you can have the cake/champagne set up at that, right?

Bloves- I think we still may cut the cake and box it then send it over, but only in an attempt to cut down on the amount of time we need our photog, we are not having them take pics at the dinner..but we do want the cake cutting

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it! At first I was disappointed but the more I think about it, maybe we should just go ahead and do cake right after the ceremony. I forgot to take into account the gap between the ceremony and dinner which will be used for photos of DF and I. And of course, cake cutting pictures are important but as someone else mentioned, I doubt I'll have time with our photographer at dinner itself.

I guess post-cutting I'll just have to ask a family member to run off and immediately get the box containing our top layer into a fridge?

Hiya,

This is what we are doing. We are getting married at the Boardwalk, having photos taken there and then private reception at Sago Cay at the GF. We are having the champagne and cake ceremony over there rather than having to transport the cake around.

The only problem we have is that we are going over to POR from the GF for some photos and I'm a bit worried about the cake melting in the car before we get back to the Boardwalk!

Escape Wedding cakes

Does anyone know if you can have "and they lived happily ever after" added to an escape cake and if it would cost extra?

I was really happy with it. It was better than I had imagined. Our guests are still talking about how much they liked it!

Here's mine.



They lost my cake topper, so they just stuck the Minnie Mickey on it. Wasn't happy! And the colors were off even though I gave them swatches. Sigh.

Hello! This is my first post and I just want to say how amazing all these cakes look! I have a quick question though. My bf and I are prob doing the Wishes package and we already have a pretty good idea of what we want for our cake. It'll be the shells and sands theme. I had already called the wedding planner to see if they'd do a custom cake and they said they don't see why not. For people on this board that had custom cakes, we're they pretty laid back in what idea you had in mind? Mine is more the type of cake that I want. The recipe is for Tres Leches cake (three milk cake) if you never heard of that, wiki it. It's amazing. I'm mexican and would love a cake close to home to be made for me. I really hope they'll try to make it if I give them the recipe, if not it'll be time for plan b: Strawberry cream! LOL! I'm doing the wishes package!

I *love* tres leches cakes! I can't guarantee that Disney's version will taste like what you're used to, but hopefully they will be amenable to giving it a try. We did a custom cake based off a picture in a magazine, and they did a fantastic job re-creating it - except for the colors. So I would say, if that's important to you too, send swatches of fabric or paint chips along with the picture.

I don't see why not - they put it on certain Wishes cakes. And I can't see it costing very much extra, if anything. Only your wedding coordinator can tell you for sure, though.

I just have to say that is the most beautiful cake I have ever seen in my life. With the shimmer in the flowers, the whole thing looks porcelain. I don't think I would have been able to cut it. I'm happy to hear it tasted just as good as it looked.

Yay! I'm glad someone else has tried tres leches. I like it to be just right but nowadays people here make it too too moist! You can literally see the milk running out of the cake tsk tsk. I'm hoping a chef will try it out and with the right ingredients, it'll come out not like home, but close enough. As for the cake, it's super easy, I just want that shells one they have under classics since it'll be a beach theme. I might want them to add a little green to it but other then that, it's a lovely cake.

A little ot, but when my bf and I were watching your vids while looking at other disney weddings, was that one of the final fantasy themes you were playing!? Correct me if I'm wrong. I believe it was your ceremony video.

A-ha! Well, judging by recent experiences posted on the DIS' cake thread, you should have no worries about getting a cake from Disney that's too moist.

I'm not sure if any of the songs we used appear in Final Fantasy (most are by Jerry Goldsmith, Michael Giacchino and John Barry) but there's a list of them here: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...41&postcount=2
