    :blush: I have to admit, since I only use the iPhone app I haven't figured out photobucket. And now my Internet is down. Lurkypoo had to post the brave cake pics for me.

    Btw:: the brave cake had the end part of the arrow 'feather type' but Ruby (bday girl) grabbed it off :)

    This was an 8" extra high cake (almond with white chocolate and fresh strawberry filling. It was also delivered to Le Cellier and made by the Yacht Club bakery. The final cost was $139.00.

    Hi all. Can any expert on this thread tell me if the price I was quoted today is high? I was quoted a price for a painted white chocolate character for over 100 dollars. This did not include any cake at all. Is it normal to charge over 100.00 for just the painted chocolate character? Thanks

    Yes, as long as you are checked in.

    The number in Post #2 is Private Dining's direct line.

    Well, the character alone could be $50 or more, and hand-painting the entire thing has to cost at least $50 (which is what they charge to paint the smaller of the two white chocolate castle cake toppers), so I'd say yes, that's a "normal" price at Disney. ;) You could ask them just to gild the edges and see if that takes the price down.

    QUESTION: What are the dimensions of a mini-cake or more specifically how many does it serve?

    I have been trying to read through all the posts but cannot find this information yet. Want a small cake (only 3 of us) for my daughter's birthday at Coral Reef. Thank you so much for all the helpful information in this thread!

    How big was your Ariel cake (6 inch, 8 inch) and did you just order this recently?
    Thanks!

    I'd say a 2-tier minicake makes two big pieces and a 1-tier minicake makes 2 medium-sized pieces. I think a 2-tier minicake would be plenty for 3 people if one was a kid and neither of the other two were me! :rotfl:

    Hi there, we had three of these little cakes on our last vacation. I'm one of the believers that they are perfect for three, maybe four. It depends on how large a slice you need.:lmao: I'm posting a photo of the three of us with our little Halloween cake. DH ate half and DD and I split the other half. It was more than enough after a filling lunch or dinner.:goodvibes

    I called this week and ordered two of the Belle's Rose cupcakes that Lurkyloo (Thank you!) posted from the wedding showcase. We're having them at GF tea and Pat was easy to work with. She put me on hold to check the price, six dollars each and putting names on the plates. I'll let you know how it goes-we leave tomorrow!!

    We are going to Boma for a birthday on our upcoming trip. With food allergies to consider what is my best option to get a cake for the birthday girl?

    Thank you SHADOWRYTER!!!! What a perfect size for our tiny celebration at Coral Reef. Love it!


    GOOFYSHELL...Could you post a link to the Belle's Rose Cupcakes? I would like to try to have a special dessert for DD at the Cinderella Happily Ever After Dinner at Park Fare (she wouldn't eat the super cute glass slipper dessert)

    Thank you so much for this info! I know it'll be almost a year, but we are going for my 2 year old's third birthday and he is obsessed with the monorail so this might be a fun thing to have for him in our room. I wonder if they will deliver it to Wilderness Lodge like they would a cake as that is where we're staying this trip?

    Hey everyone! I have a whole bunch of questions and hopefully someone can help me!

    My family is visiting the World again this August for a little over a week :cool1: We are all very excited, as we are celebrating mine and my sister's college graduations and my mom's birthday!

    Before our last family trip in August 2011, I did some serious lurking in this thread to order a cake for my mom's birthday at the Brown Derby, but they didn't end up having it ready when we got there, which was kind of a bummer. I am hoping to order a cake again for this trip, so I'm thinking you guys can help me be a little bit more successful :)

    To celebrate our graduation, I think it would be fun to do a Parent Trap theme circa 1998, since my sister and I are redheaded twins and we have always loved that movie. Any chance of this being possible? It would also be cool if we could somehow incorporate Oreos and peanut butter with that, since thats an iconic thing from the movie. I guess a cake like this would fall in the realm of a "fancy" cake, but I am not quite sure how to even go about ordering it.

    We currently have ADRs at San Angel Inn, Mama Melrose, and CRT. Is it possible to get a cake like this delivered at any of these places? From what I've read CRT seems like the only place that could work, but we are also thinking about booking the Dessert Party that night, and I think we would possibly die from a sugar overdose with a cake on top of that.

    I should also add that we are not staying on Disney property for this trip, which eliminates delivery to a room. We will probably go to Downtown Disney a few times, so I am also wondering are there any restaurants there that will work with a resort bakery to do a cake like this.

    As a side note, I also don't know what to do for my mom's birthday. We will actually be at Universal on her real birthday and she seems a bit against celebrating any other day besides that, but I would still like to do a little something for her cakewise. Any suggestions on that front would also be great.

    Please help! Any suggestions are welcome :goodvibes

    PRIMROSE~ If you read the first two posts of this thread as they contain answers to every possible question (with links and pictures). It is the best FAQ I have ever seen on the topic!

    This may wind up being something that I have to ask Chef Brian about, but I figure I'll ask here first...

    For the white chocolate toppers, I know they can do all kinds of things with them...but here goes...

    Can they "Dress" the toppers? :rotfl:

    More specifically, do you think they'd dress the Donald topper like one of the IASW girls in the South Pacific room- i.e. fondant grass skirt, gumpaste flower lei, etc. :rotfl2:

    I mean, I had a moon and star put in Mickey's hands for our last cake, but that's a far cry from turning him into a hula girl. :lmao: It's going to be an IASW themed cake, but I still don't know if they'd go to these lengths to incorporate the Donald topper into the theme. I mean- it seems very Donald, but not sure if they'd agree. Any thoughts? :confused3
