The quote I received was a straight $77...nothing in anything I was told over the phone, or in the quote e-mail from Chef Brian mentioned that the quoted price included taxes/fees/gratuities. Taxes were also included on the check we received at the restaurant.

I haven't seen anything that would make me think that taxes/gratuity were included in the price quote from the chef?

That's what I'm going to call to find out. If they are NOT included in the cake price, I'm fine with paying them on the dinner bill. I may have been misinformed and thought they were already in the cake price, thus my resistance to "double paying" tax and tip if they were added to the bill on top of including in the cake.

I have absolutely no problem paying tax or gratuity on the cake itself once, just don't think it's appropriate to be charged for it twice ONLY because of my party size, if that makes sense?

Update: I just called the Contemporary Cake Hotline and spoke with Maria who said that tax and tip are NOT included in the quoted cake prices, but are added on at the "end" when you get the bill at the restaurant.

With that, I'm comfortable. Sorry for any kerfuffle!

Yesterday when I made my order I specifically asked if there were any other fees and was told YES. This is for the cake only. You will pay taxes and gratuity at the time it is delivered.

Background:Back in January I called and emailed inquiring about a blueprint cake incorporating a rock-n-rollercoaster theme. I had wanted to work with Brian and well... he would not budge on the cake. I could only have one or the other. I then contacted Pat who was great and said that we could do the blueprint design with a rockin roller coaster theme. Basically a choc. guitar sitting on top of cake with a blueprint style fondant and some musical notes.

Well, it was time for me to call and officially order my cake. I called Pat who was very nice, but the cake she said I could have they could no longer do. I about started crying. She was trying everything. EVIDENTLY - per her-- about 3 weeks ago legal came down hard on what they could and could not do. If there is any copyright or anything like that they can not use the design. PERIOD! They can no longer use some the of the tinks they were using and now pluto has to have a certain colored nose. So they can not find any blueprint design that is not copyrighted. I even asked if my friend who is an architect could do something---she said yes but was hesitant. I even asked about doing it freehand--afterall--just give me some lines with angles and degrees---she flat out said no that it would cost way to much. Anyway, she was on the phone with me for almost 45 minutes apologizing and trying to reach a middle ground. In the end she did find a blueprint of a guitar that we are going to use. Then she is going to add some tools and musical notes. At that point I was done and was like just surprise me. 8 inch cake--$92

Confirmation of cake order?

Hello everyone, We're leaving for Disney in 2 sleeps! I've ordered a cake from Chef Brian at the Contemporary for my DD's birthday at CRT. I'm wondering if I need anything as a conformation of the order, the email from Chef Brian maybe? When I ordered from private dining there was no confirmation number given. I'm a little nervous. Has Disney ever forgotten a cake order? TIA!!

They don't use confirmation numbers, but it never hurts to call Private Dining back a few days before and confirm the details of the order. I do!

For the cruise line you need to download their Shoreside DCL Cake Order form and fax it in to the number on the bottom: http://dcl1.wdpromedia.com/media/dcl...l+01102013.pdf It needs to be received at least 7 days before the sailing. More info is available on this page—scroll down to Celebration Cakes.

I don't remember the size off the top of my head, but it is the smallest you can get with that type of decoration. I believe it feeds about 8? the price was somewhere in the $80 range.

mickey mouse cake or 8 inch cake - which is tastier??

Will be ordering a cake from Yacht club for dh birthday (for illumination cruise).

I've checked out the cakes and cannot make up my mind taste-wise, which cake is tastier - the mickey cake with mousse filling and ganache, or the 8 inch cake with dark chocolate filling and frosting.

has anyone tried eighther of them ? can I get some advice which is tastier?

when they write dark chocolate filling and frosting, is it also a buttercream?
