Help with size/prices

I finally got an ADR for my trip next week in a MK resort so I'll be ordering a cake for our CRT lunch! So excited!

I had asked about the lighted white chocolate castle and it appears they will do it but I'm conflicted on what size to ask for. The mini is much too small. I want enough cake for DS and I to have some after lunch and still take some back to the resort.

Lurkyloo I think you mentioned it was too big for a mini tier cake, but we might be able to do a tiered cake 3 inch on top of 5 inch. Is that more or less cake than just a 6 inch? Any idea on price as well? I don't want to spend a ton of money but still want to get to experience a Disney cake this trip.

We will be doing just buttercream (not a fan of fondant) but may ask for marble flavor.

Just got back from Disney and our cakes turned out amazing! We have two two-tired mini cakes for my twins bday at Captain's Grill and they both came out adorable. Will try to post pics later.

I need to know who I can talk to.
I'm sorry to hear this happened to you. It makes
me nervous as we have DS 2d bday cake ordered for Chef Mickeys in January. Had you called the cake line to order after your emails with Donald? I know I emailed with Heather then had to call the number to order.

Does anyone know if I can make changes to my cake that I've already ordered? We won't receive the cake until November 14!

I had no problems with my twins cakes this past week. I ordered by phone a month in advanced and called to confirm just incase a week before.

Just a quick update on my ToT mini cake for anyone interested. Apparently I can have Vanilla sponge with Peanut Butter Mousse filling, no suitcase as the Cake is too small.

Bit disappointed about the suitcase but I think I will go ahead and call the order through next week.

Well I'm a bit disappointed but not giving up yet. I emailed MK Cakes to inquire about ording a cake for next weeks trip. For one they told me that Marble is not an option? Just vanilla or chocolate and the only fillers are vanilla or chocolate buttercream or mousse? We just had a cake from them in May that was Marble with fresh strawberries and had no problem ordering it.

I also asked about doing a 3" on top of 5" tiered cake with the castle w/lights and they said that isn't an option for size. That I can do a 6" cake or a 6 over 8 tiered. Yikes! Way too much for the two of us.

I emailed them back asking if I would do better to try elsewhere or go straight through the contemporary. I can't imagine with all the flavored cakes I've seen here that her info is correct. Or is it because it's CRT? Is that still the Contemporary bakery? If it's an issue of restaurant I can have it somewhere else.

You can ask for a 6-inch Celebration (a.k.a. "podium" in DIS parlance) cake in all-chocolate or all-vanilla when you check in for your reservation. For anything else you'd need to go through the MK cakes email posted on the first page of this thread—they're pretty good about responding within a day, but I dunno how much time you have.

I'm glad you were able to get closer to what you wanted!

I believe this is because they are trying to standardize the offerings in the MK (all restaurants) that can be provided by an outside vendor, instead of having the Contemporary custom-make every single cake someone orders for the MK. However, if you let them know that you want a custom cake, they should put your order through to the Contemporary, which would enable you to get different flavors and possibly that 3" on a 5" (unless Chef Brian took those pans with him when he moved on! )

Has anyone done this or does anyone know if you can get fondant cut outs ( such as circles) on a cake that is just buttercream icing not fondant covered? Also I would like a bow made of fondant as a topper on the cake and fondant beading around the bottom but have the cake itself just iced in buttercream. I am ordering for at CRT. Hopefully that made sense to someone out there!

I think you are exactly right. I emailed back letting them know I had the Marble a few months ago and that I know Contemporary has offered that size in tiered and just asked is this was new policy or if I'd have better luck going through the Contemporary. She basically said they were trying to make things easier for guests by having MK handle the orders and make them simpler but they can contact the bakery to see about other options.

After all that though the $120 price tag for a 3 on 5 tiered cake is a bit more than I can justify spending on a cake for just me and my 5 year old. Going to see about a 6 inch instead.

I posted a cake photo a few pages back that was buttercream frosting with fondant pumkinheads on top and other chocolate/fondant details on it ... so what you want can likely be done. We ordered through Chef Donald at CR, I think they handle specialty cakes for MK.
