I’ve just confirmed that the Yacht & Beach Club Bakery will now deliver cakes to restaurants inside Epcot and at Downtown Disney. This is a big deal because the bakeries that normally service these locations cannot do anything fancier than a screen-printed cake and, at certain Epcot locations, only offer whipped cream-covered cakes (the horror!!!). I frequently see people asking on the DIS Boards’ unwieldy Official Cake Chatter Thread how they can get a cake like the one they saw at the Contemporary Resort or the Grand Floridian at some Epcot restaurant, and the answer has always been that they can’t. But now, by calling Private Dining at the Yacht & Beach Club (407-934-3105), they can have their dream cake and eat it at Le Cellier too!
The bakery can also deliver to most restaurants at Downtown Disney, even those not owned by Disney. They just need to make arrangements with the restaurant first, so call to see if the spot you want participates.
The Yacht & Beach Club Bakery has been turning out good-looking fondant-covered cakes for a while now, but until recently they required you to order at least a 10-inch cake if you wanted these fancy decorations. However, they now have the capability to do 6-inch and 8-inch fancy cakes for those with smaller groups and budgets.
