Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let you all know that I am now on a new assignment within the Contemporary Bakery. The cake team has just as much talent though and I will still be there to assist them if needed but your in good hands. Thanks for giving me all your fun and unique ideas to work on the last 5 years!

You made a cake for my parents' 40th anniversary in March, and they were so thrilled with it! Thank you so much for the magic you've passed along to our families!

I will look forward to working with the new team for a cake at Liberty Tree Tavern in October Good luck with your new assignment!

Brian,

You made my DS CARS cake 2 years ago as well as our 10th Anniversary cake. Sheer perfection - you are incredibly talented. Good luck in your new assignment!!!

Donald Joyner has been a pleasure to work with. He is very prompt with his emails and has given incredible advice. I will for sure post pics of both cakes we have ordered.

This time tomorrow, I'll be at POFQ

Brian was the one who did my sons birthday cake in 2010 for his birthday dinner (on his actual birthday) at Chef Mickey's. It was the best part of our entire experience that evening.

Dear Chef,

Just wanted to wish you all the best in your new assignment. You and the rest of the cake team have made some absolutely wonderful cakes for my children. Your cakes will always be a bright spot for us in those trip memories.

Bummer! Brian made our cake two weeks ago! Hope Donald is as much a pleasure to work with as Brian was!

i have been exchanging emails with donald (joiner) and hes been really prompt and really doing his best to work with me.
My husbands favorite movie is the black hole but due to those pesky licensing issues he wouldnt be able to use VINCENT or anything specifically black hole. He did work with me and give me a few ideas but in the end i am going to go a WALL-E route. I will be getting this cake september 22nd so I will post pictures of my cake from Donald. Im sure it will be amazing!

Two boys two birthdays

I am combining two birthday parties at Disney World. There's only 7 of us at the party, but they have two different ideas for a cake.

The 9yr old who normally is happy with banana muffins instead of a cake wants a cake with spaceship earth triangle patterns. I want to go the easy route, get a cake with a character on it for the cake loving son (probably Star Wars or Phin and Ferb), but somehow incorporate spaceship earth in the party decorations.

I mean, could I get a character cake with grey triangle patterns on top? I think he wants them all over. Not a sphere cake, though.

Ideas?

Is $50 a piece reasonable for a 2 mini cakes? One is a Toy Story/Jessie theme and the other is an Ariel theme? Dinner is at Cali Grill on our last night of our trip which is a birthday trip even thought their birthdays are a month or so off. Are there additional costs? Should I just stick with the slipper desserts at CRT earlier in our trip? TIA

That's a great price for 2 mini cakes. The only additional cost would be tax. If you use the Tables in Wonderland card, the automatic 18% gratuity would be applied to the total cost of the meal, including the cakes.

Back a couple of weeks ago from our trip for our 20th anniversary. Ordered a cake from Pat at the Grand Floridian for Narcoossee's. Pat was great. She took a day or so to call back when we were playing phone tag, but was very receptive to what I was wanting. I emailed her pictures and two ideas for an UP themed cake. I wanted it to include the house, since we just bought a house, and it's similar to the UP house. Wanted it to either have the mailbox, or for it to have the balloons on top of Paradise Falls. After discussing with the chefs what they could do, Pat got back to me and said we were a go. It was an 8" fondant covered marble cake with chocolate butter cream frosting/filling. YUMMY!!



Price was $175 plus tax/tip. Absolutely worth every penny!
