$35 seems to be base price for a mini cake with simple/standard trim/decorations. I was just quoted $50 from the Contemporary for a mini cake with dark chocolate mousse filling, buttercream frosting and some non-standard objects (witch hat, tombstone, pumpkin with vines, frosting spider webs). I think it's going to be adorable.

Random question...when you order a speciality cake from CR, do they give you some sort of confirmation #?

I am convinced that my mini 2-tier cake price was the $35 minimum since I kept it so basic - chocolate cake, no filling/fruit flavor other than chocolate buttercream frosting, no screen prints, no fondant, no 2D stand up, no milk chocolate figurines, etc..

I thought the price might go up since I am having the exterior in yellow frosting and left all other decorations up to the artistic choices of the pastry chef. Since the confirmation email (including cake price) didn't come until the next morning, I am assuming that a pastry chef "signed off" on the request and it wasn't considered to be elaborate.

Also, with regards to a pp who asked if there was a cake confirmation number in the email, the answer is "no" as it applies to my own personal order. However, the email did reference my ADR Confirmation number since the cake is to be delivered at our BOG dinner.

Wow! That's some price! But congrats! I'm starting to think I am going to have to sneak into one of the resort restaurant kitchens and bake my own cake, cause these prices are verging on insanity. We're just two people. Maybe I'll just put a candle in a Twinkie. Of course if I do that, I'll be headed to divorce court. Ahhhhhhhhh!

It really depends on what you want on the cake. The cakes I've ordered have all been much better priced than I could ever get at home for a lesser quality cake. But I don't need fondant or a ton of elaborate things. I'm okay with an edible chocolate image and some flowers and other embellishments on buttercream. The one cake I did get with fondant I was less than impressed with - it was still lovely and tasted fabulous, but to me I liked how much more the buttercream cakes seemed to have compared to the fondant cake.

Yeah, a 10-inch cake is HUGE. For 2 people, you could do a $35 mini cake or even a basic $21 6-inch cake covered in buttercream.

40th Birthday at Magic Kingdom

I will be celebrating my 40th at the Magic Kingdom this March. My booking dates for dinning will be here soon. I know I want a small fondant cake. Besides Cinderella's Castle, where is the best place to book for a cake delivery in the MK? Thanks.

Lemon Mousse

Has anyone had a cake with the lemon mousse? Is it tangy or sweet? Thanks

We had one delivered to Tony's in March. I haven't ordered it yet, but we'll also have one delivered to Liberty Tree Tavern in October.

Thanks!


We are eating at CRT for a birthday celebration and I just ordered the chocolate slipper dessert, so I don't have to lug cakes around. I did order 2 mini cakes for our dinner at WCC since we are staying at WL and figured any leftover cake could be taken to our room. I was told by CR bakery that the minicakes are pretty small and not to expect leftovers. CRT has a her royal highness package that you might look into. It includes a cake, balloon, and tiara I think. It's listed on the CRT dining page on Disneyworld.com.

Ugh I called last Friday to try to book a cake through Caribbean Beach Resort and Boardwalk Bakery... They still haven't gotten to me with a price and we want it delivered on Saturday to our resort. The lady I need to speak with was our on vacation and now she's sick. Someone else at the resort forwarded my request to the Boardwalk Bakery but I'm still waiting to hear. Supposed to call today, but I'm not real happy how I feel like they are putting it off till the last minute. It's somewhat if a simple design... 8 inch round but decorated like Monsters Inc.

If I ever find out a price and am able to order, I'll post a picture of it after we get it.

They said they could deliver to our resort and that it could sit out for up to 4 hours... How does this work? Will they deliver and put inside our room?

We did put a request on our room for a fridge so we could keep the left overs fresh.

Cakes can be delivered to any table-service restaurant in the MK, so just pick your favorite!

Yes, they will leave it on the table for you, or inside the fridge if the box fits (not sure an 8-inch cake box will fit in Disney's minifridges).

Garden Grill or Resort

I'm looking for an opinion.

We will be at Disney for my daughter's 7th birthday (Sept 21st), so I want to order our cake.

We will be dining at Garden Grill that night. Is it better to have the cake there or have it back at our resort later (BCV)? We have a villa, so we'll have plenty of room for storing the cake.

Part of me is thinking GG as it would be a bit more celebratory with the characters. Part of me is thinking back at the resort later at night so we don't have to (1) be filled to the brim after dinner and (2) lug the cake back.

We'll be traveling with family (also staying in the villas) so I need a 10 inch.

TIA!!

Hello All!

Not sure if Disney can do this because I am having a hard time getting some information from them, so maybe you guys can help me with an idea and with someone who can make this happen for us.

My husband and I are expecting our first child and we are looking for a gender reveal cake while we are on vacation in Disney. (The inside of the cake will be either pink or blue depending on gender of baby). Is this something that Disney could accomodate? What kind of decorations could Disney do on the outside of the cake?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
