Hi, sorry if this has been on any of the cake threads, but I want to order a cake for my parents 30th anniversary. We are staying at the BWV and my siblings want to surprise them with it on our pool day. What number should I call to get more information?? There just seems to be many different numbers floating around. Thanks!

Sounds like my post is well-timed! First, here's the cake we ordered for our 30th Anniversary.



We ordered it from Private Dining at the Contemporary. 10" Cake, all vanilla, for $125 (they delivered it to Artist Point for our dinner).

DisRunnerGal, I understand your confusion. I, too, didn't know who to call because there seemed to be so many possibilities. But in true WDW fashion, if who you call first isn't correct, they'll send you there. I'd suggest starting with the Boardwalk Bakery if you're planning to pick it up there. If that's not the place, they'll tell you who is!
I shouldn't have ordered such a big cake, and I wish it had had more Mickey heads, but otherwise, perfect.

Not sure what to do... I emailed Brian at the Contemporary on Monday about having a cake made for my anniversary w/an attachment of a picture I had drawn up for a cake idea. The email was sent back to me saying it was undeliverable because of the attachment, so I rewrote the email w/o the picture and sent it. When I checked my "sent item's" folder it says both emails were sent! I have not had a response from Brian either, now I don't know if he got any of the emails. Should I resend the email and apologize for resending and explain the problem or should I just wait a while longer?

Yikes! When I Emailed Chef Brian a couple weeks ago, he got back to me within 24 hours. At this point, I'd suggest trying again.

Agreed!!! He was very prompt with his replies when I worked with him and he usually emailed early in the morning...i.e. like around 6am. I know when I emailed him my sketches I had to send them as jpeg files. Is it possible for you to try emailing from another email address or different computer?

Thanks I'll try again. When I called private dining to get his email, the woman told me they had just changed the email address to be more "user friendly". I wonder if she just didn't give me the wrong one!

Sounds like she gave you the wrong one. They gave me a long one and appologized for the fact that it was so long. They said they were going to have a new Email address "soon" that was more user-friendly, but it wasn't ready yet. And this was only a few weeks ago.

I'm in the same boat - I emailed Brian on Thursday and haven't heard back. Maybe he is out for a few days? . I'll probably try again on Monday if I don't hear anything.

Mini cake ideas?

Was considering ordering the "your highness pkg" at CRT but would rather order mini cake for daughter turning 8. Any pics of just mini cakes anywhere? She loves princesses but don't know what they can do on a mini. Can it be delivered to CRT or can you only buy the package? TIA for any help.

I think most people put in their cake orders within about 2 weeks of the date in which they need the cake. The fear is that the cake order will get lost in the shuffle if it's done too far out. On the flip side, if it's a very involved cake with all kinds of highly labor intensive hand made elements- then they may need more time.

We needed our last cake on Aug 16th and I believe I started working with Chef Brian around Aug 2nd. The cake involved a bunch of sugar flowers, edible images w/golden frames, a white chocolate topper, etc.

If you're worried about them having enought time for your concept, you can always try reaching out to the chef to see if there are any special elements involved in your request that would require more than 2 weeks notice.

Thank you for your reply I will probably contact them the first week of August then!

To order a minicake for CRT you would need to call Private Dining at the Contemporary (see Post #2). There are really no standard designs, other than the one with tiny piped Mickey heads that you see a lot. You'd just need to find out from the pastry chef what is possible.

I'll post some mini cake ideas they had on display at last year's Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings' Bridal Showcase below. There's also a selection of minicakes pictured linked to in THIS LIST of cake photos from the last Cake Thread.
