    I have baked one as per the instructions! It is in my fridge and the frosting is delicious!
    The cake seems to be soft and lovely, but I am waiting for DF to get home so we can have it for tea (for the next week or so, it's HUGE!!!)

    FAB! It is totally yummy. It is not like any other cake I have made in texture (can only be the buttermilk I guess) it's somehow a lot lighter.

    Thank you so much for the recipe!

    No - they paid for an upgrade to a 2-tier Mad Hatter cake. :thumbsup2

    Yes. :goodvibes

    Here are pictures of all the standard Escape package cakes:

    Thanks! It definitely was a twist that went w/ my "sparkle/bling" theme. :goodvibes

    Yeah...that was my husband and I. We were the "wishes" wedding that was featured at the BW. That's funny/awesome that you recognized my cake! :cutie:

    Is the $450 the current price for a 2-tiered Mad Hatter? I had requested a 3-tiered Mad Hatter and it came out to be $1,100. The minimum for the cake was 85...I'm only having 30 guests and would love to scale my cake down a bit. I'm shocked that there is such a difference between a 2-tiered and a 3-tiered cake. Any suggestions on other types of cakes that would be more suited for 30 guests? Has anybody done mini-cakes?

    To my knowledge Disney has not updated the pricing of their cakes, and with tax, service charge and the delivery fee, the $980 3-tier Mad Hatter could very well come out to $1,100. The 3-tier cakes require more decoration, hence the jump in price.

    With only 30 guests, you could definitely do a 2-tier Mad Hatter, which feeds 50. Any of the simpler cakes pictured at the beginning of this thread will be a lot cheaper per person. For example, the Mickey's Delight cake (the one with the Mickey head stamps) is only $8.50 per person.

    The cheapest cake is the Tower of Roses, a 3-tier buttercream-frosted cake (i.e., no fondant) that's $7.50/slice and feeds 50 people - so $375. You can see a couple 4-tier versions in this post: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=21440861&postcount=21

    Mini cakes are actually more labor-intensive than standard cakes, and prices range from $17-$30 each, so you're looking at a minimum of $510 before tax, service charge and delivery fee.

    Thanks for the response lurkyloo. You sure do know a lot about DFTWs. Is there a place where I can get a listing of cake prices? The only thing I got from our WP was the CD of all of the cakes they offer but nothing with actual prices on it.
