The only hiccup is that we'd ordered the cake to be delivered between 2-3pm so it would be in the room when we got back. They don't start deliveries until 4 so by the time we got it the birthday boy was napping. Needles to say we didn't tackle it till after dinner so it had melted a wee bit and we took half of it home! But it made for a tasty treat when we got home!
This is EXACTLY what I need to get for by DHs birthday! Thanks for posting!!

Umm... I think $40? $35 base price for the mini-cake and $5 for a custom flavor combo.

ETA: I went back and found the short review I posted at the time. http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=269

Quote:
The specifics:

mini-cake from Contemporary bakery, delivered to the California Grill on 5/27
vanilla cake with passion fruit mousse filling
buttercream icing with no specific design request, just "something whimsical in Figment colors"
$40 plus tax and tip

The review:
Our best Disney cake experience thus far. The cake to icing ratio on these mini-cakes is perfect in my opinion, and the tangy-tart passion fruit was an amazing balance to the sweeter buttercream and the little candy flowers. There's not a whole lot of actual cake, but what there was was moist and an excellent vehicle for the filling & icing. I was very happy with the overall look of the cake as well. The colors are a bit distorted in the picture, it was sunset at a window table and I wasn't playing with my white balance to get better shots, but the purple/orange/yellow was just what I had in mind. This size cake is supposed to feed two, but after a nice dinner it was plenty for the four of us (my mother & I, a light-eater 10yo, and a 3yo). After two good-but-not-great experiences with the Grand Floridian bakery, this cake taught me something - from now on, birthday dinners will be at the Contemporary!

Looking for a little help from the cake experts.


First, we are staying at BCV on our upcoming vacation. I am already in talks with YC/BC Private Dining to create a cake celebrating my 30th birthday (actual date was in mid August but we will be celebrating while there the first week in September). If I have it brought to the room by room service rather than a restaurant an 18% service charge will be added right? Am I expected to tip on top of that? If I get my dream cake 18% extra won't be cheap to add on top of that but perhaps the convenience is worth it (I would have to rearrange my ADRs to eat at a date at YC/BC close to when I originally wanted to get it, but it would still be several days off from my perfect delivery date).

Second, I am planning to get a white chocolate 3-D Donald on top of the cake - I can either have it fully hand painted or just touched with a little gold. I found the picture of a fully painted Donald, but was wondering if anyone had a quick link to any of the gold touched characters (doesn't have to be Donald)? Or at the least words I could search the boards for to find a picture? The difference in price between the two is $115 so even though I love love love the fully hand painted Donald, I am not sure I love it for $115 more!

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions!!!

Hello-

I am definitely not a cake expert (as I am ordering for the first time myself in 2 weeks), I did find two images of the white chocolate Donald on another site. One is gold touchups and the other appears to be fully painted.

Here's the thread:

http://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/w...e-talk.863023/

It is more than halfway down the first page - there are pictures of cakes listed alphabetically by character.

Good Luck!

I've ready through the last 20 pages or so and I am in cake overload.

I am thinking of ordering a birthday cake for my 3 yo DS to be delivered to Chef Mickey's on our arrival day. I would like something Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed. I am not interested in fondant and would like to keep the cost down with either a 6 or 8 inch cake.

Can I get one of the stand up 2D images? Are these only certain images or will they work with me to find an image? Any idea of the general cost?

If I don't go with one of the 2D stand ups, is there anyway to make a cake more 3D without going all out? Ordinarily I choose Decopac type things so there is a little toy/figure on the cake, but I understand that is not possible.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Other way around: You call the Cake Hotline for Magic Kingdom cakes now, even though they are made by the Contemporary. You can still call the Contemporary directly for cakes to be delivered to the resorts it services, just not the MK.

The room service charge includes gratuity, and yes, it will be assessed on the cake if you have it delivered to the room.

Yes. They will choose an image unless you send one in. The cost is usually rolled into the price of the cake, but I'm thinking it's not more than about $15. Otherwise, I'd just bring my own 3-D figures and tell them to leave space to put them on the cake.

Thank you for the clarification! I'm hoping to get a cake for dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern, so I guess I'll be calling the Cake Hotline this time!

After years of reading these cake threads, I'm finally ordering one! I called the cake hot line & ordered a 2 tier mini wedding cake. We're celebrating our 35th anniversary with next month, so I'm surprising DH during our dinner at Yachtsman's Steakhouse. Ordered chocolate cake/ chocolate buttercream/ dark chocolate mousse filling ( I know- chocolate overload- but that's his favorite cake combo!)


We have the Tables in Wonderland card. I decided to get it at a dinner instead of delivering to room, so I can get the discount. We are also doing dinner at Citrico's. Trying to decide if I should order 1 there too & compare.

I wasn't crazy over feeling obligated to tip 18% of the cake cost, but oh well, I did anyway.

They supplied the candle and lit it for us. I didn't even think to bring a candle.

The servers made a fuss over the cake. DD enjoyed the extra attention. Even Tigger came over to see what was going on.

The cake is perfect! I've been trying to figure out what to do for my turning 3 year olds bday. We will be at crystal Palace the day before her bday for lunch so something like this would be perfect. Did you tell them you wanted pink and the ears? Great pic!

Yes. I asked for pink frosting and told the CM who took my order that I'd seen plenty of Mickey ears but was wondering if they could make Minnie ears. She said they could. We were happy with the cake. It was very pretty.

Ok so I couldn't figure out how to add pics to this post but I was hoping someone could give me some advice, I recently sent in a request to have a cake made up for my wife for her birthday which was suppose to be brought out at the 50's prime time on her birthday. Now I sent in a couple of pictures of our wedding cake and asked to have a mini version of it done. Just two layers and nothing really fancy. This was my exact request to Disney.

Looking to have it 2 tiered with a vanilla cake on the bottom with strawberry filling and on top a chocolate cake with raspberry filling. I would like it covered in whipped cream as well as have the piping of the dots that form the diamond pattern with red tops on the tips of the diamonds. What I also wanted to take from the demo picture cake was the little Mickey hat on top with chocolate if you could do this.

So I sent in a picture of the size I was looking for as well which was basically a little bigger than cupcakes size. I was quoted $150. That sounds really high to me. Any opinions on this because I really want to do this but that is just too expensive after everything else we will be sending. help please

Do they know you want a mini cake? Because they normally don't let you do two different combos of cake and filling in a mini cake, so I'm thinking they are quoting you for a full-size 2-tier cake with a 10-inch on the bottom and a 6-inch on the top ($150 is actually a pretty good price for something that size!).
