I immediately thought of the dress draping/amulet/tiara visual too! There couldn't be a copyright on lilac draping, right!? Is Contemporary your only option? (It was ours bc birthday dinner is at Chef Mickeys) if not, maybe try another baker? If it IS, maybe give Chef Brian another try? Maybe use a different email address! Just kidding!

I've made her cakes for all her parties so I know what I asked for wasn't impossible or unrealistic.

I suggested a two tier cake - the bottom to look like her dress and the top tier to look like her tiara. 6" bottom 4" or 3" top. Or 8" bottom with 4" top.

We went back and forth and I felt as though he just didn't want to do that type of cake?

There was no mention of licensing of the character.

My DD loves sofia and if I could make her cake myself I would but we are celebrating in WDW at CRT for her birthday.

Oh well.

Apparently, the idea I had wasn't that original. I wasn't asking for the character, just a cake that looked similar to her dress. We will be at CRT so he is our only option.

I thought about just calling and seeing if they would do just an 8" but I really was hoping for that tiered cake look.

You know, I considered using a different email address. Lol

Has anyone had decorated cupcakes? Any pictures? I looked through the picture thread but they seemed to be all cakes . I was just wondering if those could be customized or not?

Success! Just got an email back from Chef Brian. We will be getting a 6 inch Haunted Mansion cake with black roses and one red rose (my special request) delivered to BOG on May 16 for $75.

So glad I found this thread.

We are celebrating my dad's birthday at Tutto Italia. But I do not like the cakes that they offer. Are you allowed to bring your own cake? I am thinking about having the Boardwalk Bakery make it and then just pick it up and bring it to dinner. Is this allowed?

Tinkerbell and Periwinkle Cake

Pat at GF did this one for us in Feb. My girls are twins, and they love Think and Periwinkle. It was fabulous. I believe it was $75.

Did you mention a budget, because maybe that was part of the problem? Just from my own perusal of this thread (I have yet to order a cake myself, so I'm definitely not an expert) a cake like that would likely cost close to $200.
I have seen him customize slightly larger versions of the mini wedding cakes for less though.

Awesome! I'm glad to know that they're accommodating some requests to have cakes delivered there.

How pretty!

Soo...I finally caved (I think I'm incapable of surprises) and mentioned to DH that I was planning on surprising him and the other members of our party with a cake. He just doesn't think the cost is worth it. Then I showed him my sketch and he said "they would make it just like that?" and I said probably... and he was kind of impressed... and said that it was up to me. Granted, I have no idea how much a cake based on my sketch would cost. I have a rough idea, but it could end up being quite a bit more.

Now I'm thinking that since this is my first cake and we have no occasion to celebrate (stupid April not having any holidays) that it may be better to just go with a mini wedding cake, even though we likely wouldn't have anything left over.

I can't decide! We leave for our trip on April 13th, so I need to make a decision and put in an order next week or so...

Here's the rough sketch I did for the cake I want.



I'm not opposed to some alterations, but it's the basic idea. I think I probably should pick between Big Ben and the Pirate ship flying across the moon (for space and cost) but I definitely want the flowers and foliage to be reminiscent of the Neverland (as in lots and whimsical-like).

I guess I should probably just plan on calling and see what kind of response I get. If I'm underestimating the cost too much, then I don't think I could even justify it, as much as I love cake. I can always save my cake idea for when we're actually celebrating something, or traveling with more people.

Love the design! The ship flying across the moon is one of my fave parts of the movie so I am a huge fan of seeing it incorporated into the cake. I don't know how you wanted them to do Big Ben...but it might reduce costs some if they were to start with an edible image and add little details to enhance it. Either way- fabulous idea!

The anniversary cake I ordered for my parents was a hit! They were totally surprised! When the server at Tony's brought out the cake, they said something to the effect of "We hear someone here is celebrating a special anniversary" and my parents were looking around like "who?". They're actual anniversary date isn't until May, so they really weren't expecting anything. It was great to surprise them!

We ordered an 8" vanilla cake with buttercream icing (and filling) from the Contemporary. Chef Brian did a great job on the cake! The buttercream filling was probably a bit much, but I wasn't sure how the kids would like any of the other fillings (they are 6 and 3), so it was the best choice. The buttercream all around was delicious, though!

Even with 6 adults and 2 kids, we had leftovers! The 6" cake would have been enough, I think.

Anyway, onto pictures! Here is the "sketch" I'd sent Chef Brian:



I had also sent him pictures from my parents' wedding, as I was trying to create something reminiscent of the event.

And here's the actual cake:



The cost was $77 (+ the automatic 18% gratuity added because of our party size).

We really couldn't be happier with how it all went. I would absolutely order a cake from the Contemporary again!

I think it would really depend on size - I'd say for 10in (10 people) you'd be looking at roughly $100, for a 6 in (6 ppl) you'd be looking at $75 you can have BIg Ben and the ship on chocolate, the flowers in fondant/paste and painted. If you are okay without fondant over the cake/just buttercream then the cost is lower. The fondant work is where the price jumps up - but the cake you're showing can be made beautifully without fondant.

BTW I love the idea the ship sailing past the moon has always been one of my favourite parts of the movie.

You can bring your own cake—the restaurant just isn't allowed to store it for you at any point.
