    I just got a response from Pat via email. She said " Our mini two-tier cakes are 3-inches round for the bottom tier and the top tier
    is approximately 1-inch round and is meant for one person.

    We can recreate this cake for $40. However, these cakes come in chocolate
    or vanilla. We do not use cake mixes. We can tint the white butter cream
    icing purple."

    So... I know some of you have gotten different flavored mini-cakes from Pat.. how did you do it?

    Edited to add: I emailed her showing a picture of someone's mini-cake and she said that it did not look like a mini-cake, as it was bigger than what they deem a "mini-cake". Maybe this needs to be updated in the first few posts that the GF's mini-cakes are 3inches around on the bottom layer, and 1 inch on top. I did notice this when going through the hundreds of pages of this thread (all three threads), but wasn't for sure. Not sure I even want to do this now as I'm so limited at GF.

    Devil's food is not a cake flavor offered anywhere on property. You'll have to do regular chocolate, I'm afraid. The only thing I can think of is to see if she'll let you do chocolate ganache as the filling instead of chocolate mousse - that might make it more dark and fudgy.

    Oh, well the GF bakery makes red velvet all the time! It's getting Pat to let you have it that's the trick... Good luck! :thumbsup2

    Thought you guys might get a kick out of this Wreck-It Ralph cake. It was created by this pastry chef, but I'll bet Disney could do something similar.

    Will a 10 inch Cake be able to fit in a moderate hotel's fridge ?

    Well after some it is eaten of course. Only want a 10 inch because the Grand Floridian only does smaller feature for smaller cakes. Was hoping for a marble cake with custard and raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream. Does anyone know if they could do that in an 8 inch ? I'm sorry for all questions, only want to surprise my parents with a special cake.

    This is my 2nd Anniversary cake from the Boardwalk! It was absolutely perfect perfect perfect! Marble cake, white chocolate mousse! Chef Matt was absolutely fantastic! I could not be happier! I tried getting this cake last year from the Contemporary and was a disaster. This was perfect and wanted to share!

    Hi! I had a few questions and was hoping someone here would know the answers.

    I have seen pictures of mini cakes (the ones for 2 people) that are two-tiered with Mickey ears on top. My DFi loves Goofy and I was wondering if anyone has seen a mini cake with Goofy ears or if that would even be possible on the mini cakes?

    I also have seen pics of the white chocolate Mickey figurine on a plate with chocolate covered strawberries around. Is this still available and is it only at GF? What does it cost? Also, does anyone have a picture of the Goofy figurine?

    Lastly, not exactly cake, but I booked an Illuminations fireworks cruise for our honeymoon and would really like to order some sort of key lime pie for DFi. Has anyone ordered anything like this from Yacht Club Private Dining?

    Sorry for so many questions and thanks!

    Sorry it has taken me so long to get back here and post pictures of the cake I ordered. Life has been hectic the last couple of weeks. Anyway, just as a reminder, I spoke to Janet at Pop Century to order a mini anniversary cake. I sent a picture of the basic design I wanted with MM ears on top, the inscription "Still living happily ever after" and I wanted chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse filling. I was quoted $30.

    Here is the picture I sent asking for the design to be duplicated:

    Here is what was delivered:

    The cake was delivered by the time promised and DH and I were both very pleased. The cake was moist, delicious and more than enough for two people!

    I haven't been able to read through this entire thread but from what I have read it seems like Pat is really hard to deal with and that she pushes the more basic cakes. Would it be better to switch to a restaurant serviced by the contemporary bakery or do you think I'll be okay ordering with pat as long as I'm insistent about the flavors and such? I would also like to email a picture of what I'm looking for, do you think it will be a problem? I would prefer to keep our reservations the way they are but I also don't want a terrible cake. Not sure what the best option is. Thank you in advance for your thoughts. :)

    The bottom tier of our wedding cake was 10 inches. We were just barely able to squeeze the box into our mini fridge at Beach Club Villas, but that was 5 years ago. Not sure if the newer mini fridges at, say, Art of Animation would accommodate a box that deep. Bell Services can keep it in their fridge for you, though.

    Great cake! Any chance you'd share the price too? :goodvibes


    The Mickey Ears are a standard mold they have. I've never seen Goofy ears, but that doesn't mean they couldn't sculpt/mold you some. It will just add to the cost of the cake.

    Most of the Deluxe resorts seem to have the ability to do white chocolate Mickeys. The selection of characters and the prices vary by resort, though, so you'll really need to call. See Post #2 for phone numbers. Figure on $30-$50, though.

    That's another one that only the resort can answer for you. I haven't ever seen a pie delivered posted on these Cake Threads but, again, that doesn't mean it's not possible.

    Thanks for posting! Looks tasty!

    I've never heard of anyone getting a terrible cake at the GF. I think it's just that the process can be trickier there for some. Others report having no problem getting exactly what they want, so maybe you'll have a smooth experience too! :thumbsup2

    I'm happy to hear that! I think I may have just misread some of the posts or possibly gotten the cakes/bakeries mixed up. Once it gets closer to our trip I'll have to call and see how it goes. If I'm not able to email a photo or if she pushes the basic cake I can always order a mini wedding cake for our meal at the Grand Floridian instead (since i'll know what to expect for one of those) and save the more elaborate cake for later in the week. We have a meal in magic kingdom and from what I've read it sounds like the pastry chef at the contemporary is usually much easier to work with for custom cake orders. I'm sure they are both great though. :)

    I need an opinion. I really don't want to order a 10 inch cake for our NYE fireworks cruise. We have 9 people to serve, 2 are kids (10 and 13). I do not want any leftover cake to deal with/feel bad about wasting.

    Should I just order the 8 inch ? Or just get the 10" and leave leftovers for captain/deckhand and not worry about it ?

    Order the 8-inch. Disney waaaay underestimates the number of people its cakes will feed. I've had trouble demolishing even half of a 6-inch cake with 4-6 people before.

    Hi!

    It was made by Chef Matt and the decorator was Sandy I think. It was $80! I could not have been happier with it and with them! The cake was not huge, I didn't want it to be, it was about 8-9 inches across. It was PERFECT!!!

    We need a cake for the 9 year old granddaughter. FYI, I was just quoted the price on these. 250.00 for 1 tier, 400.00 for two. Seriously? We are going to plan B!!
