    Here is an anniversary cake I ordered for my parents last week at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Although it was beautiful, and my parents loved the cake, I was also slightly disappointed by the process of ordering a custom cake from Disney. Even though I confirmed the order the order three days before, it was not exactly what I ordered. It was a 6 inch, vanilla cake, with chocolate buttercream frosting, dark chocolate mousse filling, cream fondant with gold stamped Mickeys, a Donald, and a Tinkerbell, and the white chocolate Mickey and Minnie Topper. I have more pictures of the details, but haven't figured out how to post multiple pictures yet.

    Ok trying this. This is our Tinkerbelle cake from The Wave. I'm not a good photographer, and I have a new camera. So pics didn't turn out well. The cake was wonderful. Vanilla with Bavarian Creme and strawberries. I ordered 2 chocolate covered strawberries on the side.

    Hope this works

    I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO dissappointed. I wont post the details here since I posted them in the other thread. I just wanted to add the cake pic to this thread. I'll have a pic of it non-cut in a few days.

    Our anniversary cake at Jiko. Theme Jack & Sally, unfortunately I had to use a disposable camera and the photos came out terrible! The cake however was a work of art and we couldn't be more pleased. I am so bummed about the camera quality, but I was able to get a decent snapshot of the topper back at our room!

    Cake $4o
    Decorations $30
    Made by Sous Chef Frank Vega,
    Animal Kingdom Lodge

    I didn't follow the rules. This is a cake we got the second week in Sept. at The Wave. It was around $80-85 I believe but I had ordered 2 chocolate covered strawberries. Hard to remember because we were on dining plan and I also ordered a beer and used TIW for that. But close to that price. It was vanilla with bavarian cream and strawberries. My only real request was the writing must say "I TINK everyone has the right to my opinion" and I wanted the Tink chocolate statue painted so you could see the colors. Everything else I left up to the person that made it. It came with a milk chocolate castle that was a 6 piece puzzle. It was everything I wanted. the cake was delicious. I only had a few bites and dd had a piece. The rest we gave away to other diners.

    I called 407-827-2253 followed the prompts. For Contemporary I believe it was 7 then 1. Spoke with Sally. She was great. Wrote it down perfectly. Made sure it was exactly what I wanted.

    Here are some pics of the mad hatter cake we had at Chef Mickey's for my son's 20th birthday. The only request I made was that it incorporated music, guitar and soccer which are the things my son love. He LOVED it!!! We had this 9/26/09 and the cost was $135. It was worth every penny!

    Here's a few pictures of the monorail themed cake I ordered for DH at the Contemporary last month. It was a ten inch (it was the only size private dining would customize) with marble cake and buttercream. I did ask for the layer of fondant as I thought it would give it a smoother look. All the people I dealt with were very nice and really willing to help. I also gave them free reign and just asked that it be monorailed themed.

    The cake was $70.00, and since it was delivered to our room at the Contempory, a delivery fee and gratuity were added. Total was 90.35

    Cake was tasty - just a whole lot for two people for just a couple of days! :rotfl:

    I've got other cakes that I need to get uploaded from the GF.

    We are at WDW now! My dd's 9th birthday was Tuesday and it was magical. We got our cake at Chef Mickey's and I have to say first that CHEF BRIAN ROCKS!!! The cake was everything and more that I hoped it would be.

    I also want to say that yes, it is just a cake, BUT, my dd had some problems on her bday with all the attention and actually wanted to take her bday button OFF b/c it was too much for her. She's very shy and does not like to be the center of attention. The cake really MADE her bday b/c we asked that they not sing and just bring it out and it was so special and magical without everyone focusing on her (you couldn't with this gorgeous cake! LOL)

    Here are the details:
    Chef Mickey's at Contemporary. Called the cake hotline, followed the prompts for Contemporary, talked with Sally to order. We ordered a 10 inch marble cake with bavarian creme filling, chocolate gnache icing, and a Halloween theme, it's my dd's favorite holiday and so close to her bday too! The cake was 110$ and worth every penny.

    We did have some issues with waiting for the cake to come out and waiting for them to find a box BIG enough for it! :laughing: but that had to do with CM service, not the cake itself.
    Here are the pics!!!

    As promised, here is my sister's bday cake from the GF! It was around $100 plus tip and was so worth it. We asked Pat for a Haunted Mansion theme. The cake was 8 inches, chocolate with a chocolate mousse and fresh raspberries. It was so good, we ate the whole thing over 7 days! The pictures really do not do it justice!

    The first look:

    Custom cake ordered from Yacht & Beach Club Private Dining - I ordered enough for about 40 people because we were having a DISmeet. The small round was vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream filling and the large round was chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. I did not want fondant so they used blue tinted frosting ... it tasted great and stained everyone's fingers and tongues! The bakery staff even painted the chocolate Goofy statue that I requested for a cake topper.

    We had this delivered to the Beach Club Solarium about 9:30PM on a Saturday evening ... and I did not do any follow up calling, other than to call my "contact person" in private dining a few days in advance to let her know that we were on property if she needed to reach us. Everything was perfect - I loved the final result and the cake tasted great. :thumbsup2

    I just ordered our cake for our 1 year anniversary on January 5th. We were married at Disney and will be having our dinner at the same place we had our little reception. We did not have a cake at disney but did have one at our at home reception. I called and was able to get the 6 inch vanilla with white frosting. I requested to have it made as a replica of the top tier of our wedding cake.

    We are not having the calla lilies on it this time but I did ask them to put all 3 designs on the cake. We had Mickey heads, hearts and swirls. They will also be putting the marine blue ribbon around the bottom. I asked if they could put our cake topper on it but are unable to have outside items due to food regulations. So instead I ordered a white chocolate castle on top. They quited me $65 for the cake. DH doesnt know so I am hoping to surprise him. I wanted it custom but couldnt imagine having to buy a 10 in cake and having cake ALL week...blek dont get me wrong I love cake...but I just know that I would force both of us to eat it all...lol

    Agreed. I'd tell them I wasn't paying for it. I have a cake order in for this coming Sunday:cool1:. I'm sure it'll be very pretty, like I asked, but not so sure it'll be a good cake. That said, however, our 25th anniversary cake at Yachtsman was DELICIOUS! Flavorful, moist and really really good.

    [​IMG]

    This cake was a 10 inch cake, the one I'm ordering for Sunday will be a 6 inch (there's only going to be 5 of us). And I'm having it delivered to our room at AKV, and made by the chef there, so we'll see. I'm not getting in a twist over it, I'm sure chances are that it'll be just what I hope for, and if not, I'll deal with it if and when it happens!!:rotfl::rotfl:

    I ordered a cake to be delivered to our room at the CR on October 25th.

    I ordered a 10 inch white cake with chocolate mousse filling and chocolate buttercream icing (no fondant) with a white chocolate monorail on top for decoration. It was delivered to the room. The base price was $45 for the cake & $40 for the monorail - with the $3 delivery charge and the 18% auto gratuity the total for the cake came to $109 (charged to the room).
    The cake was moist and delicious (not quite as good as mine but as a former baker, few are ;)). The decoration was well done and certainly lived up to my expectations.

    We had bell services store the cake for us in the fridge overnight after we had cut into it since it would not fit in our fridge. We had asked the concierge if there was anywhere to store it and they suggested this since Bell Services has a large fridge (where they store groceries, etc to be delivered to the rooms).

    Sorry, I didn't get any pictures of the cake after it was cut. It was multiple layers of white cake and dark chocolate mousse (the mouse was a darker colour than the buttercream icing).

    This is what we had last November. This is the standard Mickey head cake at CM. It was $48.00 and was chocolate. You are right in saying we did not have a choice of filling. We either got a vanilla with vanilla icing cake or a choc/choc cake. It was REALLY good though!

    11/11/09 - Chef Mickey's for dinner
    $47.00 8 inch round with edible image
    Vanilla cake with buttercream icing

    For $47.00, the excitement of my son was completely worth it. The cake was extremely cold, not like it had been in the frig cold, but like it was on the downside of dethaw cold. My son absolutely loved it and I would do it again, but my buttercream icing is better. Mine is homemade, though and since they are doing so many cakes, they may not make fresh batches each day or may buy tubs from someone else.

    I wish I had taken a picture with my flash on so that you could see Pluto better, but all in all, it was great! So happy that Brian made it for us.

    I posted this in the Anniversary cake thread in 2007 but will do so here so you can see this beautiful cake! I wish it tasted as good as it looked but alas I digress...


    Date: September 2007
    Where: a late Supercalifragalistic Breakfast at the GF Cafe ( it was actually 1900 Park Fare, but at that time was moved to the GF cafe temporarily while they did some rehab to the actual 1900 Park Fare restaurant space).
    What: Yellow cake with vanilla "buttercream" (really more like shortening and a dash of sugar), and chocolate ganache swirl on top.
    Cost: $85.00

    Everything was edible except the pearls.
