    Hi, nearly 3 years ago we got married at the pavilion (escape wedding).

    The cake was amazing looked like the bottom one – chocolate cake and filling with a gooey white icing.

    We are coming back to visit on our 3 year aniversary and wondered if anyone knew if it was possible to buy the same cake – not in wedding format – just one layer to eat? if so who would i contact?

    Thanks

      Yes! If you are staying or dining at a Disney resort, you can special order a cake to be delivered to a meal or your room. Complete details are available here: http://disneytravelbabble.com/how-to/order-cake/

          All the Disney bakeries on property use the same recipes, so all the cakes taste the same. Some bakeries do a better job of decorating fancy cakes than others — In your case, the Grand Floridian made your wedding cake, so I would recommend booking a reservation there. You would then call Private Dining to place the order (more info here) and usually if you mention that you had a Disney wedding and want to re-create your top layer, they are very helpful. They can even pull your original BEO (within 5 years or so) to see what the design was.

            Thanks.

            p.s. what is the gooey icing made from – that was soo soft. All the ones we eat in the UK has hard icing

              Interesting! If your cake had a kind of Play-doh-like covering, that was fondant over buttercream. Otherwise, it was straight buttercream. Mmmmmm…..

    ours was the Roses and Drapes????

      Yep, that was fondant over buttercream. The staff might have removed the fondant before they served it to you, but if you served it yourself, that’s probably the fondant you’re thinking of.

    if we are having an escape wedding but we want the mickey wave would they do that on a 2 tier cake?

    • Carrie

      Yes! Your planner can let you know if there is an extra charge.

    i read that for an escape wedding you get around $200 towards your cake and that you can put that towards an upgrade, but does it work the other way round? We’re having an escape wedding with only 10-12 guests so could we put the $200 towards a smaller 1 tier cake? I know we wouldnt get any money off but it seems a waste to have a big cake! we’re from the uk so wouldnt be able to take it home?

      You could try asking them to just do a 6-inch, 1-tier version of whatever Escape cake you’ve chosen, but they won’t give you a credit or money back for the difference. People usually end up sharing their extra cake with the staff at their hotels (or friends they’ve met on Disney message boards!).

    Can the flowers on the roses and drapes cake be changed? Like for example to purple, or can it only be in white or pink?

    • Carrie

      Your planner would have to find out from the bakery what alternative colors were available, but I’ve seen them do it before, so I don’t imagine it would be a problem.

    Are the escape cakes the same as the two tier wedding cakes on display at the boardwalk bakery?
    And do you know what they cost to order for a private event, not a wedding package?

    Thanks, Diane

      Some of them, yes! Last time I was there, the bakery didn’t have samples of the new Escape cakes on display, but maybe they will after they reopen following the remodel. Generally a 2-tier cake like these will run you about $200, but the price could go up or down depending on whether you want fondant over the buttercream and how elaborate the design gets. Definitely call Private Dining at BoardWalk Inn and have them hook you up with a pastry chef via email so you can get an exact quote.

    Hi Carrie,
    I am trying to find a custom cake topper for my escape wedding cake. Do you know the sizes of the tiers? Also, have you ever heard of anyone not being allowed to bring their own topper? Thanks!

    • Carrie

      The only thing would be if it was too big or too heavy for the cake; otherwise, I’ve never heard of it being a problem. The Escape cakes are a 6-inch on top of a 10-inch.

      Hi! I do not work for Disney. For more information, you need to contact the bakery that services the Disney park or resort where you will be dining. See my Cake Options By Location page for phone numbers.

    Do you think I could order a mini cake in the Mickey’s Delight design? Thank you!

    • Carrie
      September 5, 2013

      Yes, but they have to pipe the Mickey heads on, like THIS, if you want a two-tier mini cake. If you did a one-tier mini cake, they’d be able to cover it in fondant and stamp them on.

        Thank you so much! Disney really should hire you – or at least give you a free custom cake during each of your trips. 🙂

    Can they do a gluten-free cake for someone who is celiac for an Escape wedding?

    • Carrie
      December 30, 2013

      Definitely ask your planner. They may be able to make you something or they may refer you to Babycakes NYC, but Disney is known for accommodating dietary restrictions, so I think the chances are good!

    How do the Disney Escape wedding cakes taste? Do you get to choose combinations for cake/filling or are they just basic cakes? Also, are they all covered in fondant?

    • Carrie
      March 21, 2014

      Hi AJ! Disney’s Escape cakes taste like all other custom cakes at WDW, so if you’ve ever special-ordered one for a meal or your room, they taste like that. Pretty much what you get from any custom bakery and better than a supermarket cake (thought Publix cake lovers might disagree). You get to choose different combos of cake and filling for each tier, and the cakes are covered in fondant over buttercream. The basic flavors offered are Chocolate, Yellow, Marble or Almond cake with Chocolate Mousse, White Chocolate Mousse, Strawberry Mousse, Raspberry Mousse, Bavarian Cream or Amaretto Mousse. However, you can usually get any of the flavors on the list in my Cake FAQ for free or a very small surcharge.

What do you think?
