Quick question to all of those that have ordered cakes. I'm torn between getting an almond cake with bavarian and fresh strawberry filling or an orange cake with tropical mousse filling. Any feedback on these flavors?

This year I went with Chef Brian and cannot wait to see our spooktacular haunted mansion cake that we'll be getting next month! Well, as long as we get it that is
Brian made our Haunted Mansion cake back in May '10 it was an AWESOME cake. Don't forget to take a picture!

We are staying at POR and want to get a mini cake for my parents anniversary. Is the Anniversary Mickey and Minnie white chocolate characters available at the Boardwalk?

I started a thread about the orange cake on the wedding boards to find out the answer to this question! If you do a search for orange cake, it comes up! The brides are tasting all the time, so they're the ones I wanted to ask.

The consensus was that both the orange and almond cakes were delicious (some brides recommended the almond cake with specific fillings but I don't remember which ones), but that the Bavarian cream didn't have as much flavor as they wanted. Almost all the ones that posted there really liked the tropical mousse filling (it sounded too strange for my family when I ordered the cake!)

I personally went for the orange cake with an amaretto crunch filling and it was absolutely outstanding. Totally delicious. The web address for that thread is here: http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2978139

Ok, I am working way backward on this, but this is how the Disney addict mind thinks!

My son will be turning 7 while we are at Disney next spring. I want to do some sort of special cake for him as this is a surprise and thus we won't be able to celebrate before he goes. Since my 180 days are approaching I want to book a cool restaurant to have his birthday dinner at knowing we can get a cool cake. I am thinking of something either with a Star Wars or a pirates/Captain Jack theme. Based on that, where would you make ADRs?

I would go somewhere serviced by the Contemporary, Grand Floridian or the Yacht & Beach Club bakeries. Here's a list of those places:
  • Contemporary Resort & Bay Lake Tower
  • Epcot: Le Cellier, Garden Grill & Coral Reef ONLY (call Private Dining at the Yacht & Beach Club)
  • Fort Wilderness (call Private Dining at the Contemporary)
  • Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
  • Magic Kingdom (call Private Dining at the Contemporary)
  • Polynesian Resort (call Private Dining at the Grand Floridian)
  • Wilderness Lodge (call Private Dining at the Contemporary)
  • Yacht & Beach Club & Villas

I understand. .... and even tho my last interaction was quite positive, there are too many worrisome anecdotes to ignore. My plan is to confirm and reconfirm and get name sof who is working on the night of the event and the night before, etc. I also got the name of the manager of the restaurant where cake will be served and told him I am working with Pat.... the more people who are aware and can help connect the dots, the better. And then...confirm again.

To be fair...Pat did give me a great help when she said that she could help keep the leftover cake overnight in the bakery fridge until our brunch at grand fla cafe the folowing morning....and suggest that the restaurant could give me to-go containers for my 14 guests to take cake home with them! ...

A very big help bc I was thinking, what am I going to do with all that leftover cake???? And... We are going to jellyrolls right after dinner and I didnt want to bring a big box of cake with us! So.... Kudos to her for offering and thinking of that solution!

So hard! I think it depends on the frosting flavor you go with. The almond/Bavarian combo would taste better with choc frosting and the orange/tropical would taste better with vanilla....all just my opinion of course!

2 down...1 to go:)

So yesterday I found myself e-mailing 3 separate pastry chefs. I recieved an answer within minutes from the Boardwalk bakery and the Yacht and Beach Club. Still waiting to hear from Chef Brian at the Contemporary. I sent a picture to the Y&B and Yvette was very helpful sending an image back to me of their customary 2 tiered mini anniversary cakes. She said she would switch up the colors. I asked for a simple Vanilla cake with dark chocolate mousse filling. The rest should be similiar to this:

Cost...$35 +tax. I gave her a CC# and when I actually called to order the cake I spoke to Yvette. Very nice to deal with.

Next was the Boardwalk and DD's birthday cake. After the problem with GF I really wanted to make this up to her. Jessi was great to deal with. I sent her an image of lurkyloo's creative cake and an image I made. She said there was no problem in creating what I wanted. This will be red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. Decorated like this:

Cost...$25 + tax and a CC# gaurantee.

I have not heard back from Chef Brian but it is still early. I asked for the same kind of cake...Chocolate cake with Chocolate mousse filling decorated for Halloween in purple and orange with a little black Mickey ears witches hat on the top. Can't wait to hear from him. So far so good.

Thanks for your help lurkyloo.

When I ordered our cake through Pat for our trip last month. She did screw up our filling flavor. I corrected her and she said she fixed it but it was still wrong when we got our cake. HOWEVER… what we did get was delicious so I didn't mind the mix up at all. I asked for a little mermaid theme, which they did an awesome job. All names were spelled correctly etc. So all in all, I would say I had a pretty positive experience.

Just a little note...when I called Boardwalk PD it said the number 2393 was no longer in service and gave me a new number 5175 which did work. Said something about a transistion???

glad it turned out well!

I have to say that right now, after all the back and forth...if so much as 1 thing with this cake doesn't go as planned... well, it will take a LOT of pixie dust for me not to lose it!
