Here's the picture I was thinking of. I think I'd go with a deeper blue though, but not as deep as navy.


There's just something about the photo props that I don't like, they just seem kind of cheapy looking, but that's just me, and I really don't mean to offend anyone. I know sometimes there just aren't any other options. I think the white chocolate castle would be a lot classier looking.

I've never posted a picture before, but I thought I'd give it a try! I could NOT believe the quote for the $500 cake! Above is a picture of a cake I had made for my mom for her birthday a few years ago. It was NOT at Disney, but a local bakery made it for me for $50. The entire teacup was made from gumpaste. It was beautiful and reminded me of the request you sent to Pat! Good Luck!

Oh well. I would be really upset if she dropped my cake

Oh my Gosh, that's so pretty!! I would have just liked the top part on a platter!! I'm just going with the white chocolate slipper dessert, I have too much going on, getting ready for the trip, to bother going back and forth with Pat....who obviously was just discouraging me. Just not worth it!

I'm ordering a mini cake from the Contemporary as a surprise for my DH at our anniversary dinner at the Cali Grill. We were married on 11/11/11 and I'd love to think up a cute anniversary saying to go along with the 11/11/11 theme to put on the plate. Do any of you talented cake people have any ideas?

Ok I am officially sold on the white chocolate castle! Thanks for finding this picture. It will be good to have the extra reference! Well, if all goes as planned I will make sure I post a picture and price here from our Decemeber trip.

I'm fairly sure the characters aren't allowed to bring cakes out. I know at CRT they're not allowed. If one person had a cake delivered by Snow White, Mickey, Tigger, then everyone would.

IF you are talking the large white chocolate castle I believe that is $100 on its own. And the little one is VERY small. So not sure what the budget was but money wise I don't think the castle would be advisable for a 6-8 inch cake. Actually I think the larger castle requires at least an 8 inch.

I thought I saw the smaller one and it looked good in size to me - we are looking for a small cake anyway. I hope to call by the end of next week so I will make it a point to find out what details I can. Thanks I do like my husband a lot but I think I can find a better way to spend $100 than on white chocolate!

There is a smaller one but it is for the small cakes that feed 1-2 people... typically on the mini wedding cakes.
This was mine just a month ago....
