The other idea I had was Partysaurus Rex from the Toy Story short. I would love any input or fought you might have. Was looking for a 6 inch cake. I have not decided if I want it covered in fondant or buttercream yet. Thanks so so much.
When I think bright, I almost always think yellow. It's got more pop than white, but is still light enough to make a decent blank canvas. I also am a big fan of framed edible images around the side of the cake when dealing with multiple characters. i.e. kind of like edible portraits hanging on the "wall" of the cake. Ex. an oval shaped edible image of Donald could be framed in blue and red striped fondant framing, a similar image of Minnie could be framed in red w/white dots, and so on. I'd likely leave Mickey for the top and either do a 2D edible standup or the 3D white chocolate topper. You could then surround him in fondant confetti, streamers, balloons, etc. A fondant ball style border around the base of the cake in colors and designs like the frames and streamers would also probably look nice.

Alternately, if you went with Partysaurus Rex- you could go a number of ways with the cake color/design. Personally, I love it when Toy Story themed cakes are done in sky blue with clouds. For Rex...I think you'd want a 2D edible stand up of him dressed as such...you could probably decorate the base of the image and the base border of the cake with edible strung beads similar to what he wears.

I hope both of these make sense...but I know verbal descriptions aren't always the greatest.

Either one could be done in buttercream or fondant. My only concern is that they may suggest you bump up to an 8" cake. While it costs more and is more food, it also gives them more room to carry out the design. The GF seems better about taking more elaborate designs and using them on 6" cakes.

I was planning to order an 8 inch cake but wanted it to be fondant covered and fancy, so now I am concerned!!!!
I called the phone # listed at the beginning of this thread for Epcot and spoke with Theresa. She made my choices seem very limited. She did say that an 8" could have the personalization but no decorations of your choice. She did say there was a choice of fondont for a 10". Hoping I can get some more info on here.

I thought that a few pages back Lurkyloo said that Epcot area was getting its own pastry chef that would now be able to do special order cakes...not sure if the first page has been updated...I think there was a post that someone already ordered from there.

I would look back over the last few pages...maybe someone knows how long ago it was?

I had read that also but seems that Epcot options haven't changed from previously posted info. At this point (unless I find out I can order a cake from somewhere and pick it up), I'm thinking about having it delivered to our resort and taking it in with us. Now I just don't know if there's any restrictions on taking a cake in.

I know that someone got a custom cake at Epcot with Mickey ears on top and I know lurkyloo has mentioned several times that Epcot now can do fancy cakes. Perhaps this is another time where it all depends on the CM you talk to how much they will cooperate? Maybe try calling another day and speak with a different CM??? Sigh...

On a positive note- I did contact the Yacht Club today to order a white chocolate Donald for my DH to be delivered to Yachtsman Steakhouse. I asked for gold accents on it and was quoted $40.55. My DH will love it!!

I also contacted the Contemporary about ordering a mini cake to be delivered to CRT for my DH as an anniversary gift. I asked for white frosting, marble cake and Bailey's mousse filling (yummy!). Wanting lavendar garland like decoration with lavendar flowers. Not sure if they'll be able to do it, but asked if they could create a white chocolate filigree heart with a hidden Mickey in the filigree, to stand next to/ behind the cake. It would be just a bit taller than the cake itself. Would like frosting flowers on the plate in front of the heart. I hope they can do it!!! Hopefully I'll hear back from them tomorrow!

I had thought about calling again tomorrow to see if I get a different answer.

I wonder if anyone could help with this?- We are eating at the Garden Grill (Epcot) and my son would like a Jack Sparrow cake for his birthday.

Has anybody ever had a Jack Sparrow themed cake - I was thinking maybe a 6" with a screen print of Jack Sparrow?

Any ideas, suggestions welcome.

Thanks

The tough part about POR is getting ahold of someone to order the cake from. They don't seem to answer their phone very often.

It sounds like even though they do offer fancy cakes now, they're doing what Animal Kingdom Lodge does and some of the other Deluxe Resorts used to do, where they'd refuse to customize (with fondant) anything smaller than a 10-inch cake. What's weird is, when I spoke with Epcot, they said they'd do mini cakes, so I don't know why the prejudice against 6-inch and 8-inch cakes. If it were me, I'd keep bugging them and try to get them to relent, and if that failed, I'd just bite the bullet and pay for a stoopid 10-inch cake that we couldn't possibly finish.

Here's an Epcot podium cake. They can write on the plate sometimes, but not on the cake. (Well, once we got them to write "Bon Voyage" but that's short!)

Disney can't put a screen print on anything smaller than an 8-inch cake.

Thank you so much for the great ideas. I am gonna hopefully call next week and place the order. Just have to decide which one I want to go with. Thank again so much!

Ok I looked on the first post and this is what is said that is offered in Norway. So what's the screen print for the 6 inch cake and the 8 inch cake?

6-inch $21 chocolate cake with chocolate frosting or vanilla cake with vanilla frosting and screen-printed chocolate disk décor; no personalization

8-inch $32 chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and chocolate frosting or vanilla cake with white chocolate mousse filling and vanilla frosting; personalization and character screen prints available

That podium cake would be fine, but I thought you could get them with a round Mickey disc on top? Does anyone know? We're thinking Garden Grill for dinner that night.

You can't get a custom screen print on a 6-inch cake. Sometimes there's a screen-printed white chocolate disc with a generic Mickey on it that they will put on top of the 6-inch cakes. It looks like this:

You would need to call and see if the disc is an option. I've only ever seen it on cakes made by the Contemporary resort. Let us know what you find out!

[QUOTE=lurkyloo;49260515]You know, they didn't have any prices, but I would imagine they'd be on the higher end... Maybe $35 or $40 each?


were they cakes or cupcakes? $35-40 for cake fine but not cupcakes, that would be too much for me with all the other vacation planning

This thread is awesome but it is making my head spin. I need a cake for my partner for La Hacienda at EPCOT on September 15, dinner. Can I assume from this thread that I can just order it when I get there?
