Thank you, I will do that!

One more thing...do you have to pay for it when you order, or is it added to your bill at dinner?

We will be there the next evening for our 24th wedding Anniversary.

They take your CC number at the time you order but you dont get charged until the actual dinner. I did notice that they put a $1.00 hold on the card which was reversed a day later.

Exactly how small are the mini cakes? Is it more than a few bites for 2 people?

We leave in a little less than two weeks for second anniversary. I just found out that DH didn't like the cake we had for our wedding. He opted to not come to that part of the planning session so I don't feel too bad. I thought it would be fun to have our wedding cake recreated since we didn't keep our top layer. Its hard to tell from the picture how small the mini cake is.

Splitting a 2-tier minicake between two people is like each person getting one regular-sized slice of cake with a lot more frosting on it than usual. A 1-tier mini cake is like 2 regular slices of cake.

If it helps, I am a HUGE sweets fan who does not believe there is such a thing as "too rich" or "two sweet," but even I can only eat half a mini cake in one sitting.

Mini Cake Scale

This shot might help you get an idea of the size of a mini cake—note the fork:




And this one shows a mini cake next to an 8-inch cake (on the left):

Thanks, this helps! I didn't want it to be too small but the 6" seems big. We had to throw out most of the top layer of our wedding cake because we couldn't travel with it. I was so sad. I don't want to go through that again. Our wedding cake was the Mickey wave. The stamps should still be an ok size for the mini cake right?

Hmmm... I don't know how much of a wave pattern you'll get on a mini cake cuz the scale of the stamps will be much bigger, but I'm sure the pastry chef will do something great.

Hello!

Mu husband has been dying to attend the Star Wars weekends for years and we're finally doing it this year! I would love to order the Jedi Mickey cake just to make it extra special. We are staying at the Dolphin and i read that this cake could be ordered at the Yatch Club Bakery. Do you think they would deliver it to our room at the Dolphin although its not an official Disney resort?

Thanks alot!

I'm so excited because I went ahead and placed my order for a cake with Brian at the Contemporary for our arrival night dinner. DD16 LOVES Princess and the Frog and anything Mardi Gras/New Orleans so that will be the theme. I also ordered both of us a Cinderella Slipper for our arrival morning breakfast at Cindy's Castle.. she turned 16 and I turned 40... I almost didn't order myself one but decided, hey if I don't order one for myself, no one else is going to do it for me! LOL

There's no way a non-Dolphin staffer would be let into your room to deliver a cake. Why not make a dining reservation at one of the Yacht & Beach Club restaurants and have it delivered there?

Thank you Lurkykoo! I believe if I want a speciality Cake delivered to the Polynesian I call the Grand Floridian? If that's correct, does anyone know the best time to talk to chef Brian would be? I would love for him to do my grandsons Super Hero cake for his 4th Birthday,

Grand Floridian Private Dining is who you call for a specialty cake at the Polynesian, but Chef Brian works at the Contemporary.
