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!
WOW! What a beautiful cake! I have to ask. Are the "balloons" a giant sucker covered with frosting "balloons"??

There will be a couple of diabetics in our group.

Do any of the bakeries offer sugar free options?

I was thinking of ordering one main cake and then a small sugar free dessert for our celebration.

Is there a delivery charge for the cakes on top of quoted price? What if I switch from ordering for Cali. Grill to WCC?

You'd need to call the resort where you're dining and see what they can do for you. There are no standard sugar-free cake options, but Private Dining and/or the chef at your restaurant may have come up with some kind of sugar-free dessert.

There is no delivery charge for cakes delivered to restaurant meals.

They were actually made of fondant on a piece of chocolate.

Love the Up! cake.

Broke down and ordered the 2 mini cakes from Chef Donald. I sent him pictures of 2 cakes Chef Brian made for a friend of mine in February. Moved the cakes to our first night at WCC, so we can sample the delicious sounding desserts at Cali Grill on our last night. Can't wait to see my girls' faces!

I ordered my first WDW cake!

Happy Friday everyone!

I just placed my WDW 1st cake order. I used the MK email address and worked with a wonderful CM named Amy. We went back and forth with emails for about an hour yesterday afternoon and I just received my official confirmation email this morning.

The cake is a surprise for DH. We have a dinner at BOG on our arrival day. I ordered a 2-tier mini chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling. In a nod to BOG, the exterior of the cake will be "Belle yellow" with a deep red frosting rose as the cake topper. I also asked for green and lavender accents. Cost of the cake is $35 (minimum for a 2-tier mini).

All this takes place on 9/21 and I will post a picture either when I return or during my trip (if I can figure out how to work my first smartphone).

Thank you again, especially to lurkyloo, for all the great tips and information on Cake Chatter!

Good luck with your new position! You made two cakes for us this past May and they were absolutely delightful, thank you!

So excited to have an event to order cake for when we visit in May! DH and I will be married 20 years at the beginning of June, so I want to order a small cake.

I'm thinking just one of the two tier mini cakes... We aren't huge cake eaters (I'm a cake designer and own my own business, so more cake is the last thing my family wants...lol)

But to be in Disney and have cake made FOR me instead of BY me will be a nice treat!

I just ordered my first cake from Donald Joiner for my sister for our California Grill dinner Oct 21 on our arrival night. Just the two of us this time - sister trip!!

6" 2 layer marble cake with thick layer of chocolate chocolate mousse.
Light teal smooth butter cream frosting with darker teal accents -
Mickey design 3-dot Mickey heads on the sides.
A 2D white chocolate piece with image created from a photo of the
Peter Pan's Flight marquee above the attraction that I emailed to Donald.
It's my sister's favorite ride and will unfortunately be closed for renovation when we're there.
A sprinkling of edible silver "pixie dust".
White chocolate banner with "My sister ... my pixie dust".
$56.

I'm so excited! The wait is going to be hard.

Wrong Phone Number

I called this number BoardWalk Inn* — 407-939-2393 from this thread http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=2401

to request a cake for delivery at CBR and I get a recording saying "This number or code is incorrect, check and try again".

Is there an updated number/email address that I missed? Thanks!

Mickey Mouse cake

My son will be turning two, and I was thinking about ordering the standard mickey head shaped cake. Has anyone tried this cake before? I was wondering about the taate of it. Is it dry? TIA

Here's the cake my husband designed for me for our 25th anniversary and my birthday. We picked it up from the Boardwalk Bakery on 8/12. It was yellow cake with raspberries and custard. It was supposed to be lemon curd, but since they had already made an entire new cake we didn't complain. The reason for the new cake was that the first cake was the standard Mickey head shape, not what my husband had in mind. We talked to the chef and said we'd take it, as we didn't want to waste it, but she printed out the original email and insisted the redo. The original price was $78. When we picked it up the following day, they had reduced it to $48. The cake looked fabulous and tasted delicious! It was our second cake from Boardwalk Bakery. I'll always get my cakes here, after a less than wonderful experience with a cake from the Contemporary.

Sorry the pictures are so big!
