Wow! Do you have a shot of the inside of the cake? I'm curious to see what cookies 'n' cream filling looks like!

To heck with what it looked like I want to know how it tasted!! I'm practically drooling just thinking about it.

Who does cakes at the Hoop Dee Doo? Can they do peanut free?

The Contemporary Bakery makes the cakes (see Post 2). The standard allergy-free cake is made in a facility that processes tree nuts, peanuts and soybeans, though, so you'd have to call and ask if there are any other options. (Phone number is in Post 2.)

I just called the cake hotline and after going through the various prompts, spoke with someone about ordering a 2 tier mini wedding cake for our dinner at Kouzzina in Aug. I wasn't asked about any colors or design, nor was there any mention of why I was ordering it. He took down my name and reservation time as well as my credit card number. I'm getting a chocolate cake with raspberry mousse and fresh raspberries for $25. I asked if there was a confirmation number for the order and he said no, he was faxing the order to the bakery after the call. The entire phone call seemed very odd. Does this seem right?

Not the greatest, we were too busy trying to eat it! I must say we weren't too sure about the flavor combination but it was delicious.

And I was corrected this morning by my sister, the cake was 12 inches.

I was just wondering how much reference material I should send the pastry chef. I have a few months before I should make contact. But I am starting law school next month and want to make sure I have all my materials together before starting this process. I have a hand drawn sketch and am working on a color version on my computer. I don't think they have ever done a cake like the one I am wanting.
This is a cross between the wine and dine 1/2 marathon website logo/ beauty and the beast/ and the wine and dine t-shirt design this year.

I'm starting to work on the plans for my DHs Birthday dinner at Cali Grill. His DD will be bringing her family of 4, and our 3 make 7. I think a cake would be lovely, but I must confess that these threads make me a bit nervous.

There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for why one cake order ends up amazing, and another looks like a grocery store cake. How can I make sure that if I plan and pay for a cake that it IS nice? I'd almost rather skip the whole thing than to end up with a bad surprise.

I've looked throught the cake gallery, but am really indecisive about what to order. He will be 67, so playful is good - child-like is not. I'm not seeing much Donald, but that his favorite character. He like Toy Story, Test-Track , the Haunted Mansion and the Epcot World Showcase. I like some of the Haunted Mansion cakes, but then it looks like there were a few not-so-much results. Also, still confused about size v. types and what makes the most sense for our party. Help!

The lack of confirmation number is normal, and they almost never ask you about decor—you have to volunteer the info yourself. I think because you asked for a mini "wedding cake" they think you want the standard design with white frosting and dots, a variation on this:



So if you want something different, be sure to call back and specify.

Sounds like plenty of reference to me!

The secret is to order a fondant-covered cake, and those are only available at certain places on property (see Post #1). Otherwise, you get the typical piped frosting and flowers seen on grocery store cakes.

Among the places that make fondant-covered cakes, I've heard very few complaints about the Contemporary bakery, so I think you'll be in good hands.

Check out the FAQ in Post #1. It contains a list of the different sizes and the number of people they will feed.

Thanks much for the info about the fondant cakes! I'll look again at post #1 - I looked through it, but must have missed how you *know* what you are going to get....

The cake was pirate themed, with pictures from the first couple days of our vacation on the cake.

10 inch cake
Marbled cake
Butter cream icing
Cookies and Cream filling
Cost $125





This cake is AMAZING not sure if you read my post but im struggling on finding a way to celebrate my disney wedding anniversary my sone bday "my twins bday as they have never had one at Disney! where as its our other sons bday on our 1st day) and a way to say Thanks to my family for being amazing through my illness!

I think a cake themed to Halloween or something thats our favourite with family pics of bday wedding etc would be a way of celebrating them all
