We did something very similar with the Belle cake we got in 2011. It was almost a disaster, but I still laugh about it. For whatever reason, DH didn't feel the box was secure enough for the road trip so I fit as much leftover cake as I could in gallon sized ziplock bags. I just remember being somewhere in the FL panhandle eating cake from a bag

Maybe you'd have better luck with a Three Caballeros Donald along with the IASW theme?
I have a feeling that's what I'm going to hear. Good call on the Three Caballeros, since that look could fit in with IASW. I could have sworn I'd seen images with all of the Fab 5 dressed as IASW characters - i.e. anniversary kind of stuff, but I can't find it anywhere to prove that the themes have been blended by Disney before. I have a plan B that involves the "small" castle topper, but we start getting into more crazy $ as soon as that topper comes into play.

We shall see...thanks for the idea!

Wow I cant believe that Disney is letting her get away with this. This is not wast Disney customer service is all about. I hate to even say that I am glad I was not the only one that had a problem with her. Any idea on who I can contact to go over her if the CR wont workout for me?

Did any of you write or make a call complaining about her and her service?

Had the same issues with Pat. Was told options weren't available, it's not possible etc. I was married at Disney and read here so knew what she was telling me wasn't up to snuff. I contacted the contemporary and asked if there was any way to have a cake delivered to the GF, that I was having so many issues, and that I didn't care what the delivery fee was, I'd pay it! By next morning I had an email from the pastry chef at the GF and everything was smooth sailing. I'd be polite but insistent and try somewhere else.

I know this is a really small image, but it might help anyway. It's a pin.



I know you wanted a hula Donald, and this isn't it, but he is blended with Small World.

Thank you! Very cute! And now I kind of want that pin! It will definitely be part of my photo selection if they say no to hula Donald, but yes to that option.

I think I may have also stumbled on some figurines that could help me. The first is a Jim Shore figurine. The second is from the Walt Disney Classic Collection. Both were obviously approved of and sold directly through Disney, so they can't come back and say they've never sanctioned anything with Donald in a hula skirt and lei.





Sooooo, hoping this will help. Of course, they can come back and say that Donald is always in a sombrero if associated with IASW, but I'll just have to wait and see.

Skylarr, that cake with the little castle on top is GORGEOUS!! May I ask how big it was and what it cost, and the flavors? I've never felt any desire to have a cake ordered until I saw that one!

It was around $500 total. Price break down is approx. $250 cake, $200 white chocolate Cinderella castle cake topper, and $30 for the smash cake (I'm not looking at the actual email but that's pretty close). The top tier was marble cake with peanut butter cup mousse and the bottom tier was yellow cake with Bavarian cream and fresh raspberries. The topper is actually 3 lbs and about 6 inches in diameter and I think 10 or so inches tall if I had to guess, we brought it home with us and it sits in my daughters room. It was delivered for my daughters 1st birthday at the Garden View Tea Room.

Awesome! We live on the Florida panhandle! Men! That's totally something mine would come up with too! Maybe I could pack some tupperware in the car!

Somehow I doubt they'll put that much effort into it. I would start out with just sending the hula images, and only send the sombrero image if they say absolutely not and you need a back up.

And that's just it...they've been very pleasant and accomodating for previous cakes, so here's hoping for more of the same with this.

I doubt hula Donald will be as problematic as an over the hill monorail.
It might be more of an issue to get them to dress him at all.

Finally got an answer

So Yvonne at AoA emailed the Beach and Yacht and they emailed back saying the could do a 6 inch vanilla and vanilla cake with blue and purple icing and image of flynn and rapunzel for $62. I was assuming edible image printed on cake and didn't like that idea. So I asked about a mini cake with the same colors to represent the lantern sky in Tangled and to do a braid down the tiers with flowers and her tiara on top, with happy first anniversary sign. They said yes and charged me $45, said they could have it delivered to our room at AoA the night of our arrival. So happy. So yes, they can do Tangled, now we know.

We get there Saturday, I will make sure to take plenty of pictures

Smile Suggestions for a mini cake please!

Hello all!! I'm so happy to have found this thread! All of the cake pictures look so yummy. We will be celebrating my daughter's 8th birthday at CRT on April 23. I just called private dining at the Contemporary resort and was told the only flavors available for a mini cake are chocolate and vanilla with chocolate filling. Is this correct? I was really hoping for a filling with fresh strawberries

The CM I spoke with mentioned 2 cakes: one was a blue star cake and the other was pink with zebra print and polka dots. Has anyone seen pictures of these?

My daughter's favorite color is purple and she loves anything that sparkles! Her favorite Disney character is Ariel. It doesn't look like I can get a white chocolate Ariel character and I don't like the screen prints. Does anyone have any suggestions for a mini cake that will blow her away?? I'm hoping to stay within $50-60.

Thanks!!!

Glad you could get the Tangled theme! But just to clarify, the $62 price you were quoted would have been for a fancy cake with buttercream. The image would have been a 2D image on white chocolate and there would have been flowers with other theme related decorations included. I had them do the Ariel cake I posted a page or two back and that was $60 plus tax. The six inch with an edible image printed on the cake would only be around $25. Just thought I would pass on the info.
