Do you mean this one, which is apparently on Disney's website somewhere but I've never seen anyone get it...

Or this one, which is what most people mean when they talk about the "Mickey head cake"...

They're all in the Cake Gallery thread, here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2118274

We got these at CRT on August 3rd. Mom & my cousin were very surprised. They said they were tasty. I tasted the chocolate mousse myself and it was yummy. Had no trouble ordering these at 2 weeks out but also called 1 week out to confirm. It said "chocolate slipper dessert" on the receipt that was placed on the table but they never looked at it. I also had to remind her at the end because she forgot. No biggie. I believe the total was $31 for both.

Yes, you can get custom cakes... here are pics of mine!

I ordered a custom cake for $65 for our anniversary dinner at the California Grill this past Thursday.

Brian from the California Grill made it to these specs: Haunted Mansion, chocolate and raspberry, and small. We chatted by e-mail and phone a bit, but I really left it up to him- and I still can't believe the results!

I got it as a surprise for my husband and was amazed when the hostess brought it out. Our server said she couldn't bring herself to cut it.

It was soooooo much more than I expected! He wrapped it in the Mansion wallpaper, made tiny skulls, bats and coffins with skeletons, added the drapes like the hostesses outfits and then topped it off with a "gold" chocolate frame with Constance and one of her late husbands surrounded by black and blood red roses! AND- it tasted as good as it looked! The chocolate cake was spongy and not too sweet while the raspberry filling was incredibly fresh tasting.

We ended up sharing with some other couples around us, but we froze the top pieces and part of the front because we couldn't bear to destroy this beautiful work of art!

and now, PICS!

Please feel free to ask any questions on my experience or let me know if you want to see more photos!

Isn't CakeManBri the best?

Yes, that is the Brian who made our cake- he is wonderful! Sorry if you are suddenly overwhelmed with requests Brian! But you cake was awesome!

I am mailing photos to you in your thank you card as well!

And, lurkyloo, ask and ye shall receive!

And finally the happy couple with our amazing cake:

Here is my daughter Taylor's cake. We got this at 1900 Park Fare on Aug 15th. It was an 8 inch cake with white chocolate filling. The cake was very delicious and was a HUGE hit with the Tremaines. I am adding all the details of our night with them to my TR now if anyone wants to read it.

The cake cost $75.

Minnie Mouse BD cake

Minnie Mouse BD cake. From GF Bakery and served at Narcossee's. 8 inch chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and buttercream icing under fondant. White chocolate Minnie Mouse Topper. $100.

Beautiful cake. Received oohs and aahs from nearby tables.
My son "designed" the cake. He asked for Minnie in a flower garden with only pink flowers and a ladybug and two butterflies.

While the cake was beautiful, it was really more a work of art than a great dessert. The cake was very dry. The mousse filling was good, though. Still, I was very pleased with the cake

we are home from our fabulous trip which included my oldest daughter's 17th birthday. i opted for a small cake as we were there for 11 days, DDP for 7 and club level. yes i'm sure i gained 8 lbs! anyhow, if you are thinking of a lighter option here is the mini-wedding cake that was made for $25 for her birthday at Boardwalk Bakery.

Alright, I hope i'm sharing my cake in the appropriate thread. After 7 different people telling me that they do not make customs cakes.... I finally got ahold of a CM who gave me one of the Chef's email from the Boardwalk Bakery. After a few emails/photos being exchanged, it was a go.

I decided to go with a rock n' roll theme as a surprise for Dbf because I was surprising him with Aerosmith Tickets.

It cost roughly 110.00 US, and it's an almond cake with bavarian cream filing.

Here it is:

Here is the picture of the treasure chest cake

and here it is out of the chest

The cake was adorable and tasted very good. This was a perfect size since we had it at Chef Mickey's and their are plenty of other desserts to pick from. As I have mentioned before my DS was thrilled to get it.

TONS of Sprinkles (she would eat them for dinner if we let her)

I'll post pictures when we get back...mid-Sept.
I sure hope you get exactly what you want!

I had issues with Chef Mickey's. I ordered a white cake, white buttercream frosting, with Snow White screen printed on white chocolate. I was very specific in stating that I did not want an edible image, and asked several times if they were sure they could do the white chocolate screen print like the GF Bakery. I was assured they could. The cake was supposed to say "Happy Birthday Emilee."

I got an edible image. It was of Snow White, but she was 'cropped' out of an image of all the princesses and you could see bits and pieces of the other princesses around the edges (like an arm, or part of a face). There was also no Happy Birthday written on the cake or the cake board.

It was pretty, but it wasn't what I ordered.

DD wants to celebrate her birthday at Chef Mickey's again, but I'm hesitant to order another cake from them. I don't like edible images, not the look but the texture. I can scrape it off my piece if I have to, but I'd rather get what I order.

ETA: My cake was from two years ago, so it could have changed and maybe the do have the screen printed white chocolate now, or maybe the person who took my order was clueless and they had it even then.

Cakes we got last week....

I ordered 2 cakes for our recent trip last week. I started with the cake hotline then was transferred to the person for the Grand Floridian Restaurants. I had to leave a voicemail and she called me back the next day. I can't remember her name and have since lost the paper I wrote it on!

The first was a mini tiered wedding cake for our Anniversary at Narcoossee's on 8/19/09. The cost was $30 added to our dinner bill. I ordered yellow cake with chocolate mousse filling and asked for it in lavender as these were the colors of our flowers. I believe she said any decorations other than standard started at $50.

The second cake was a mini cake for my daughter's 4th Birthday at 1900 Park Fare. I ordered the same cake and filling and asked for pink. The white chocolate castle was hollow. The cost was also $30 and added to the bill.

The cakes were good and served their purpose. It was better than a Sara Lee cake as far as looks and it definitely was fresh. Would I do this again? I'm not sure...

The flowers were edible:

Hidden Mickey! I realized this right after I stuck my fork in, so I quickly pulled it out to take a photo:
