I guess I'm just trying to figure out who would make this cake the BEST, with the simplest ordering process and best price? And no matter which restaurant we go with, each bakery DOES provide a nice sturdy box and bag for your transport back to your resort, right?
The Contemporary trumps the GF for simplest ordering process and best price. (The act of placing the order at the GF isn't hard, but it seems there are more communication issues that can make the process frustrating.) Because your cake design is so simple, I don't think quality of execution would be an issue for either bakery. Cakes arrive at the restaurant in a standard bakery box—I wouldn't exactly call it sturdy... it looks like this:



You might have to hit one of the lobby shops for a bag.

Thank you SO much, especially for the pic! Think I'll definitely aim for a CR cake...might switch our dinner ADR to CG...the last time we ate there was on our honeymoon so it would be pretty appropriate for an anniversary cake!

I know at this point it will be speculation but since CR bakery services the MK restaurants I think it is safe to assume it will provide the cakes for Be Our Guest once it opens? I am just trying to get a plan for your next trip.

I really want to order a cake to celebrate completing my first RunDisney Half Marathon but DH will never get the hit no matter how many times I mention it so I guess I am going to have to wait until our next whole family trip for another cake.

I'd mention that on the reservation even!

I need cake advice!!!

I want to order a specialty cake celebrating our wedding/honeymoon for our trip in December, but I'm not sure what meal to couple it with.

Give a clueless groom some advice!

Here's our ADRs:

12/3 Ohana dinner
12/4
12/5 California Grill dinner
12/6 Le Cellier lunch
12/7
12/8
12/9 Raglan Road dinner
12/10 Beirgarten lunch
12/11 Kona Cafe breakfast
12/12 Jiko dinner
12/13 Trails End dinner
12/14 Ohana breakfast

We can add dinners on the 4th and 8th if we need to. We can't on the 7th since it's our All-Harry Potter day

I was thinking I have a custom cake prepared for the California Grill dinner, but we love the desserts there usually, I'm afraid it would be too much. And forget about Ohana, because seriously, no cake ON EARTH is as delicious as that bread pudding.

What to do!?!?

I would do Cali Grill because Brian is amazing or I would consider Le Cellier since I think YC/BC makes the cake there and those tend to turn out really well!! Congrats and I think this is amazing you are planning this. I wish DH would try something like this.

OK, if Ohana and CA Grill are out, then your next best bet is the Trails End dinner, because the Contemporary would be making your cake.

Raglan Road isn't serviced by Disney, Biergarten just gets Epcot's dull cakes, Le Cellier is one of the places Yacht & Beach Club delivers to but the process can be like pulling teeth, Kona is serviced by the GF but cake at breakfast might be weird for some... (some who are not me! )

Also, if you're staying at a Disney resort you can have the cake delivered to your room if that's easier. See Post 2 for options by location.

I'd go with Trails End, but that doesn't have quite the same romantic flair to it as CG. Haha.

Maybe I'll just skip dessert at CG and do the cake there. It seems like Chef Brian has a lot of fans, and the setting is the most romantic of the options.

Unfortunately, (well, for this reason anyway,) we are staying at Bonnet Creek, so the cake in room isn't an option.

CG would be my choice as well. Not only would the cake be made at the Contemporary bakery, but you would get it early enough in your trip to snack on for several days.

Since you're staying at Bonnet Creek, you could also look into off site bakeries. I've seen a few really nice cakes from offsite. BTW, I don't know where you're staying but Hilton & Waldorf Astoria BC are both very nice hotels.

Chef Brian

What is the email or phone number for Chef Brian. I want to order a b'day cake for my sister on 8/9 and we are going to be at the Luau at the Polynesian. We went a couple of years ago for my b'day and Chef Brian did a beautiful Cinderella cake for me at California Grill. My husband does not have the contact info and Disney said they could not give it to me. Does anyone have that info. I wanted to see if I could get her a cake with polynesian flowers and the chocolate monorail, since she loves both. Thanks.

Chef Brian works at the Contemporary, which does not service the Polynesian. You would have to order from the Grand Floridian. Call the number for Private Dining listed in Post #2 of this thread.

If you want a cake from the Contemporary, but not on Cali Grill night, you could add an ADR at The Wave on one of your other available nights.

Depending on the size of your cake, make sure you have plenty of time to eat it! Many people take it back to their room and finish it over a number of days.

Haha, the way I eat when we're at Disney, I don't think this will be a problem.

Plus, I'm thinking I might want a smaller cake, it's just the two of us. More the thought than the actual dessert, I think.

I'm taking my son for his Fifth birthday to whispering pines for supper. Since there is only two of us I'm hesitant to order a cake. Would you order one or is there a special dessert i can order him?

We are having breakfast at Tusker House that day too, might be too early in day for cake
