Hi! I just wanted to find out a little more about the mini cakes. Hubby and I will be spending our 10th anniversary together at the Boardwalk Inn, and I would love to get us a special disney cake to celebrate with! While I am in awe of all the large and amazing cakes, I know we need something small - so I am thinking of the mini cakes.

I would like it to be a little more special than just the regular flower ones I have mainly seen online. I believe I saw a photo on the previous thread of a mini cake a couple got at the Boardwalk Bakery that was covered with fondant w/ silver mickey head stamps - so that is possible?

Can a mini cake be a little bit more decorated from the Boardwalk Bakery? I saw one on the other thread that had been made at GF (which i know has more capabilities) that was a beach themed mini cake...it looked awesome! I would love to be able to get something that was still pretty themed but a mini cake. I hope that makes sense.

We can pick up our cake we order at the Boardwalk Bakery to avoid the extra charges from getting it delivered?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Very pleased to report the special order cake I got for DH's birthday turned out wonderfully! Here are the details:

Date Received: 4/22
Location: Beach Club
Cost: $185 plus tax/tip ($85 for the cake + $100 for the hand painted Donald)
Cake Details: 8" Marble cake with
dark chocolate mousse filling and chocolate buttercream filling. The cake is topped with a hand painted white chocolate Donald figurine.

Review: Yummy!! The cake is very moist and flavorful. It was expensive because of the Donald figurine but I fell in love with it and it was worth every penny! DH was so surprised...had no idea it was coming! We had it delivered to our room while we were at dinner. Everything was set up on a table cloth on the coffee table in our villa...

What you would ask for is the "Mickey's Delight" style, and stress that you want fondant.

Where do I find info for getting a cake on a Cruise(We'll be on the Dream in December)? Is it even possible?

Also any recommendations for my DD's 1st birthday cake/brunch celebration?
We will just so happen to be in the world for her 1st birthday!

Here's a link to DCL's cake-ordering form, which will show you the sizes and flavors available. You fax it in at least 7 days before sailing to get the process started.

Thanks for your opinion tarheelmjfan! I really like the silver idea too, just not sure if they have any other silver options other than the stamps. I really wanted something different and whimsical. Does anyone else have idea's or suggestions? Can they make silver fondant?

I was thinking of a 6in marble cake with white chocolate mousse filling and buttercreme frosting. I want to have it covered in fondant. I am still up in the air about doing the cake in silver and white (silver wedding anniversary) or the colors of mickey mouse (red, white, yellow, black). Any suggestions or pictures would be great! Thanks Teri
Can anyone help?

Yes. In the email you can put what size cake you want, when you need it, and the description you posted here:

Once you've received a reply, you could send inspiration photos if you have any. Disney can do pretty much anything, so if you want a super-silvery cake, talk to the chef about your options. I'm sure there's sparkle dust/glitter crystals/all kinds of ways to make one. I know that the gold fondant "handles" on our wedding cake were covered in a metallic paint, so surely there's silver.

You might also be interested in the Mickey Wave wedding cake design (see below). More Disney wedding cake photos can be found HERE and might give you some ideas.

Hi Lurkyloo, I've been looking for an idea for my parents 50th Anniversary. I had already been planning to order a simple golden Mickey delight cake.

You listed the white chocolate figures available on page 1 ... do you know if the castle in your pic would be available outside weddings too? Do you know how much more it would be?

Maybe start about 2 or 3 weeks out? Unless you decide you want something super-complicated, 2 weeks is usually enough.

I think your best bet is to order the cake from the Grand Floridian if you want the topper, since it's actually made for Disney weddings by an outside company and the GF bakery is the point of contact. The small one (pictured) costs $100, and the big one costs $200. If GF private dining gives you any trouble about it, you can always order it directly from the supplier, but then there are shipping fees. Maybe they'd do a local delivery for you, though.
