    Just ordered a cake with Pat at the Grand Fla! Kinda nervous, kinda excited - I've only previously ordered cakes from the pastry group at YC/BC ... but I'm excited to see how it turns out!

    Disney has no set cake themes, except for a few standard wedding cakes they do. You basically have to come up with ideas and send them pictures or give them a theme and hope for the best.

    Here's one that Hollywood Studios made for our Tower of Terror anniversary party

    This is the Photoshop composite I sent:

    And here's one Epcot made for my birthday. You can't see the light-up aspect super-well in these photos though... The light was under the center flowers.

    I've been trying to order a cake from the Contemporary, calling the Contemporary cake line at least once a week since after Thanksgiving. I did receive 1 message back from George last Sunday morning, but I've now left 6 messages with only 1 return call, still haven't spoken with a human to order my cake for January 13, and honestly, I'm getting quite frustrated.

    Worst case scenario, what's the latest you can order a custom cake? I'm starting to panic because we have a large group celebrating my daughter's birthday, and I can't even get the cake ordered!

    The closest I've done one was at YC and it was about 72 hours in advance (maybe a little more, but not much) - and it was the best cake I've ever ordered. Most others, I've done about 1-2 weeks out and even then, I didn't really speak to anyone about design or to confirm details until just a few days before delivery. I wouldn't stress - it's a really busy time of year and even if you don't hear from anyone for a more in-depth confirmation until after New Year's Day, that's still almost two weeks before you need the cake! Next time you call back, also ask if you can leave your email address for someone to contact you that way too.

    It's Disney - they're not going to actively avoid taking your money for something. :rotfl2:

    You need to call the main number for the Contemporary and ask to be transferred to Private Dining. Then explain that no one is calling you back and your date is coming up.

    I finally made the effort to get ten posts on the board to post these! 6" cake from Pat at the GF bakery, delivered to Kona Cafe. I believe it was about $106 after tax. Pat was very accommodating when I requested red velvet with cream cheese mousse; she specifically said that there was plenty of time before my order so it shouldn't be a problem. So if you're thinking of getting a cake from Pat and are concerned that she won't allow you to get the flavor you want, try ordering with a longer lead time. Mine was about three months in advance and I found her great to work with.

    This is fantastic, I am looking for ideas for a small haunted mansion birthday cake for my son. The top looks like it could easily be changed to a birthday. Were the roses chocolate?

    Does anyone have any pictures of cakes done at Animal Kingdom Lodge recently (last year or so)? We are going in February for my mom's birthday and thinking about surprising her with a cake, but would like to see what they are capable of and get some ideas for a theme. I've searched the threads the best I can for examples and have only found a few done at AKL.

    Hello! I'm reporting back on my DD's Rapunzel cake for Dec 19th that I ordered through Contemporary. Cake was delivered to Chef Mickey's on her bday and she loved it!

    It was a 6 inch cake, vanilla with custard filling (had asked for strawberry mousse. Not complaining, it was good), buttercream frosting, no fondant, pixie dusted.

    Cost $113 before tax and gratuity

    What is the main number for the Contemporary? I'm now at 8 voicemails left in over a month with 2 weeks until I need my cake, and I STILL haven't gotten a call back!

    From the list on page one:

    To reach a real person via phone in order to reconfirm your order, call 407-824-3500 and ask to be transferred to Contemporary Private Dining.

    Thanks! That's the one I was thinking of. I'm trying to figure out where to have it though. Not sure if I could get the same thing from the BC/YC or Boardwalk bakery but those are the best options for timing for us. I'm sure the Contemporary would do it, but the day we have lunch there we are going straight to the parks so I won't be able to take the leftovers.

    I wonder if they could do a 2 tier mini cake with the same sort of design? Seems like it would be easy to do.

    Hi , I have a reservation at Teppan Edo in January for my daughter's 21st birthday, I phoned the cake hotline and I was advised that restaurant doesn't supply the Mickey Celebration Cake, so I've ordered a chocolate regular cake. I was phoning from the UK and I didn't really ask what it looked like etc, she took my daughter's name and I told her it was for a 21st birthday. Has anyone got any photos of what the cake looks like. Thank you .

    I just came across a picture of a Zebra Dome Cake! I messaged the person on Instagram but no response yet. Anyone ever have one, I’m guessing it was custom made??

    The Zebra Dome Cake is a standard offering at Animal Kingdom Lodge and only available there. Complete details are in Post #2 of this thread.

    YMMV, but I was told no when inquiring about a mini in this design.
