If you’ve ready many of my trip reports, you’ll know that ever since my wedding I’ve become obsessed by ordering specialty cakes at Walt Disney World. I’ve even compiled a massive FAQ on the process and a complete guide to cake options based on location (since Walt Disney World has no standard system for ordering fancy cakes).
The trouble with all this cake ordering is that I’ve had to buy a ginormous 6- or 8-inch cake at a hefty price to get fondant and fancy decor. However, in the past year or so, it has become increasingly easy to get certain bakeries to make mini cakes, which are adorable, customizable and only feed 2.
What I’m also discovering is that they taste WAY better than Disney’s larger cakes, probably due to the lower frosting-to-cake ratio, and even the fondant is more edible than the stuff on larger cakes.
Yes, the prices are pretty outrageous considering how little you get ($30-$55, depending on whether you want fondant), but I’d rather spend $35 on a delicious and entirely eat-able mini cake than $100 on an 8-inch cake that serves 12 and will just go to waste.
It appears that Yacht & Beach Club Bakery (which historically hasn’t offered custom cakes smaller than 10 inches) has begun offering mini cakes, which means you can now have them delivered to restaurants in Epcot. This dramatically increases the number of places you can get a mini cake on property and is cause for celebration… involving cake!
