Ideas?
We are surprising my husband with a Bday cake at 1900 Park Fare in 3 weeks. My 5 year old wants a frog on it, my 7 year old wants Prince Charming. I was thinking of a fondant covered cake with a swamp scene/frog at the bottom, and a prince charming somewhere. It would say "Happy Birthday to our Prince Charming!". Do you have any more ideas of wha I could do?

If anyone has any other suggestions or good photos, I'd love to hear/see them. Thanks!!

You could even elaborate on this further. You could have an edible image of Flora on the pink side waving her wand to "make it pink," Merriweather on the blue side to "make it blue," and Fauna stuck in the middle. You might even see if they're able to gradually marble the middle area so you get a blending of pink and blue. On the top...they should be able to sculpt an edible version of Aurora's crown (hers should be fairly easy to make out of all the crowns) and you could have a stand up 2d edible image of Aurora on white chocolate standing in the center of the crown. Since she's also "Briar Rose" - you could have a variety of pink and red roses going around the base of the cake and/or at the far edges of the crown.

Ok- in working with the swamp concept...I think you could have the fondant a marbled green (i.e. medium & dark green...maybe even a bit of brown and light green for subtle but greater depth)...then you could add the edible image of the swamp around the outer edge of the cake on the marbled green. On the top of the cake...you could have a circular or random form area of blue (possibly with luster dust to give it a shimmering water look) with a 3D edible sculpted frog sitting in the middle on a lilypad. The frog would be wearing a gold crown...i.e. he's the frog prince who becomes prince charming. You could also have them add other greenery behind the "pond" and frog to create greater depth to the scene. i.e. trees, cattails, vines, etc. Alternately, instead of foliage and instead of having the swamp image on the cake...you could have them do the swamp image on a large concave piece of white chocolate so that it functions as the backdrop for the frog. Then you could have your bday msg written on the side of the cake rather than on a piece of white chocolate like a lot of people do.

Just wanted to say thank you to lurkyloo and others on the thread for the helpful information....I had some great emails going back and forth between Chef Brian and have since called to place my order for a mini cake ...

It will be a camouflage fondant covered vanilla mini cake with a the deer made of an edible image backed in white choc standing up next to the cake. On the plate it will be written in chocolate "Happy Anniversary Deer"

I was quoted $60 for the cake - which I didnt think was too bad at all and it will be delivered to us on 9/14 at Tony's Town Square...

I cant wait to see DH's reaction he is going to LOVE it...I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as it comes to the table!

Thanks to all for great photos and info! I spoke to Pat today, and ordered my husband's 35th birthday cake fir 1900 PF on Sept 21. It is a 6 in 3 layer chocolate cake with amaretto filling. It will be covered in fondant and will have a swamp like appearance, with vines and cattails. There will be a pond, with a hand sculpted frog wearing a gold crown. The banner will say "Happy Birthday to our Prince Charming!". Pat quoted me $125. Does that sound about right? Also, can I use my TIW?

That's a typical price. You can use your Tables in Wonderland card, but it will trigger an 18% gratuity on the price of the cake, so you'll only be saving 2%.

Just found out we've been upgraded to a club level room - should I ask them for help with a cake, or is that something they do? Anyone have experience with this? Thanks for any help!

Mini cakes

Are the mini cakes $30.00 if you choose something plain without fondant? I wanted to get one with a stand up choc screenprint princess.

Chef Brian's email

I had a beautiful anniversary cake made by Chef Brian in December 2010. Could anyone tell me if the email address I saved would be the same today? TIA.

I'm trying to decide if I should get a standard podium cake for my daughter's 5th birthday at the Wave, or a custom cake. There will only be 5 of us. Her favorite princess right now is Merida (she's getting a Merida dress for her birthday). Has anyone had a Merida/Brave themed cake done? How about cakes from the Contemporary? A few years ago I ordered a custom cake from the Grand and it was fantastic - worth every penny!

That is something they can help you with but, personally, I always prefer to deal directly with the chef/Private Dining myself just so I can be sure to get what I want.

You'd need to call them directly to see what the options are.

Buttercream can be cheaper than fondant, but a screen print adds to the cost. Every cake is custom-quoted, so you'll really need to contact Private Dining to find out an exact price.

I haven't seen a Merida/Brave-themed cake yet, so maybe you can be our guinea pig! Many people on this thread have had great experiences ordering cakes from the Contemporary. Just be sure you get the email address for the pastry chef from Private Dining if you do decide to go the custom route. That way you can work directly with him to create what you have in mind.

Chef Mickey's Contemporary
August 2012
6-inch, gluten-free vanilla cake with berry filling
decorated for 50th wedding anniversary
$78 plus tax & tip






My mother really enjoyed this as she needed gluten-free and most restaurants were giving chocolate brownies as desserts ... she doesn't like chocolate Left the filling choice to Chef Brian - the berry filling balanced the "heaviness" of the gluten-free cake perfectly.

Had a group of 15 -- only 8 adults had a piece (saving rest for Grandma's leftovers) and still had half the cake left.
