Thanks for the reply, since you know a lot about different Disney Cakes, I was wondering if the process of Board Walk and Grand Floridian are close at all ? I already got all meals reserved and can't make room.

The process for ordering or the process by which they make the cakes? If it's the latter, all the bakeries on property that make fancy cakes follow the same process. The difference seems to be in the level of detail and artistry that goes into the cakes. The Grand Floridian and Contemporary bakeries seem to have access to more "stuff" (or the ability to make stuff) like, for example, the skulls and bats and snakes and things you see on pirate and Haunted Mansion cakes. But I've seen some very elaborate cakes made by BoardWalk Bakery, so I don't think you have to worry if that's where the cake will be made. It just might not have as much of the stuff on it...

I walked into a Target bathroom and it smelled like Disney World!

After lurking on this thread for awhile and looking through all the pictures, I decided I had to order a cake for my little brothers high school graduation celebration. The cake was ordered through the Yacht Club, and I ordered a 6" chocolate cake with white buttercream icing. Cakes final cost after tax / delivery was about $66. My little brother likes Star Wars and Vinylmation pins / figures, so I gave them that idea, as well as the images. I assumed they were just going to do an edible image, but they said they could do 2D images with white chocolate. Here is what they came up with...



My family said the cake was very tasty. Disney also surprised them with a white chocolate Mickey statue, and 4 tuxedo strawberries.

Does anyone know what days CakeMan Brian has off? I really want him to design/make a b-day cake for my 2 DS and I am in the process of changing a few of our ADRs around. Thought this would be good info to know before making that final change. Made a call to Contemporary cake line and waiting on a return call but thought I might get a faster answer here.

I want to add the Her Royal Highness package to my daughter's birthday dinner at CRT in December. How much notice do I need to give them? The Cast Member I spoke to today at the Dining Hotline said I should book it now, but I'm afraid it will get lost in the shuffle.

I emailed Chef Brian anout a cake i wanted for my son's 6th birthday who is shark crazy. This is the reply i got from him.

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate a request for this cake.* I can do a shark 2 d image on white choc standing up on a 6” round cake that will feed up to 6 people the price would be $85. *Please call 407-824-2955 to place your order. Have a magical day!



Any suggestions on a possible alternative to who might be able to do this cake?

You could try asking to send photos of the cake(s) you're using for inspiration, but it's never certain whether she'll let you send any... It can also be good to be sure she knows you know it's going to cost a lot of money so she doesn't try to shut you down right off the bat.
Thanks! I am working on what I want to say - I will write it down so as not to get thrown off track.

Cost $100

I emailed Brian a picture I drew and he made the cake from that. It was perfect and the cake was moist and tasty!


The whole evening was perfect we arrived at 7:45 for our 7:50 ADR and were seated immediately. Our waited did not rush us and the cake was delivered after Wishes along with complimentary champagne. We were there for 3 hours and the whole experience was wonderful and relaxing. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
Happy Anniversary! Your cake is amazing and I am so glad you both had a lovely evening celebrating!!!

I wanted a 6" cake but she said it would have to be an 8" - no big deal I guess, just extra cake. What I really wanted to share was that I thought it was funny when I asked her if she had a picture of it that I could see and she told me to look on the DIS, because there was a lovely picture of what it looked like. If it's the one I'm thinking it is, it should be beautiful. Can't wait!
Too funny about looking on the Dis for a pic...but you are right - if it's the one cake I remember, it will be beautiful!

I'm toying with the idea of having a mini cake or chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our room for my birthday (little treat for me and DBF). I think I'd want what ever I get to be waiting for us after dinner... can you specify a time for delivery? I've never done private dinning before so not really sure how it works

Yes, you can specify the time.

Me too! I'd call 2 or 3 weeks out.

I've only ever seen 3-D cakes done by the Grand Floridian and the Yacht & Beach Club, but I wonder if they might object to the blood gushing out of the shark's mouth. My advice is to try local bakery Sprinkles Cakes, which does lots of novelty groom's cakes. Dunno if they taste any good, but the price is guaranteed to be less than Disney's.
