Basic Disney Cake Photos

While some of the Deluxe Resort bakeries can turn out elaborate, fondant-covered cakes, most locations on property offer only simple chocolate or vanilla cakes. Pictured below are examples of the basic cakes you can get just about anywhere at Walt Disney World (Coronado Springs Resort is the exception).

Note that the designs pictured below are specific to cakes made by the Contemporary Resort, which also services the Magic Kingdom, Fort Wilderness and Wilderness Lodge. The decorations on standard cakes ordered elsewhere at Walt Disney World may vary (although the Mickey Mouse cake looks the same everywhere).

For complete details and pricing on cake options at each location, CLICK HERE. To order, call Walt Disney World’s Cake-Ordering Hotline at 407-827-2253.

Chocolate Slipper and Crown Desserts

They say these are available only at Cinderella’s Royal Table, but you can also get the slipper at resorts serviced by the Contemporary and Grand Floridian pastry teams (for a higher price). Price is $12.50 plus tax, and you can have a personalized message up to 4 words. Flavors are white chocolate with milk chocolate mousse and berries; slipper also comes in dark chocolate, but crown does not.

Magic Kingdom Mini Cakes

The Magic Kingdom offers two standard mini cake designs, but you can also tell them you want to work with the Contemporary Resort to create a customized mini cake. The standard designs cost $35 plus tax and come in chocolate or vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream, vanilla buttercream, white chocolate mousse or dark chocolate mousse filling. The personalized message can be up to 3 words.

Hi Lynette! Unfortunately, Pooh and his friends cannot be put on cakes at Walt Disney World due to licensing issues. Perhaps if your nephew has another favorite Disney character, you could ask for that. Just call the Cake Hotline listed toward the top of this page. Good luck!

Reply

Carrie October 9, 2012 at 10:46 AM

I know I have seen groom’s cakes that are team-specific, as well as some sports-themed birthday cakes that had a specific team on them. Just be sure to ask before you place your order, in case the policy has changed. At the very least, you can get the cake in the right color combos, but I really don’t think getting the logo too should be a problem.

My daughter loves Belle and rides horses!

Many thanks and ahve a safe and blessed day!

Hello, I would like to get a cake for my son (multiple life threatening food allergies) for his birthday he has NEVER had a beautiful cake from a bakery in his entire life! Only lopsided one’s made by mom :-)The ingredients list looks safe to me but I am concerned about the “made I. A facility with peanuts/tree nuts” statement! Is it cross-contaminated? His allergies as mentioned are VERY SEVERE! Thanks for your input.

Reply

Carrie January 10, 2013 at 9:59 PM

I don’t know much about food allergies, but I wouldn’t trust a cake with that label if his allergies are severe. Try contacting Babycakes NYC at Downtown Disney to see if they can create something that will work: 855-462-2292

Yeah, I wondered about that. Looking at the ingredients list, it seems like there’s something bad in there for everybody! :(

Just called the Disney number for an allergen free cake and was told it was no longer available and to call Baby Cakes. Unfortunately we were quoted $45.00 instead of $29.00!
Has anyone had any experience of the Baby cakes 6inch cake?…seems quite expensive.

Reply

Carrie February 24, 2013 at 9:55 PM

I haven’t heard anyone’s experience with the Babycakes NYC cake yet, unfortunately. You might keep an eye on the Cake Chatter thread on the DIS to see if anyone reports in.

Reply

Jen July 15, 2013 at 4:19 AM

I have not eaten any of Babycakes’ items, but I have heard rave reviews from both kids and adults that I have met who have food allergies. Their website is very clear about their ingredients and cross-contamination issues for the eight main allergens here in the USA. That being said, there is always the possibility for cross-contamination in the store if you are allergic to an ingredient used to make other baked goods than the type that you ordered. I have had experience with WDW dining though and it is very hit or miss. One time a chef prepared an allergen-free meat dish for me starting the night before only to have someone ruin the whole platter by adding fish at the last minute before my plate came out. Most chefs and especially the lower level workers are clueless about food allergies. WDW is slowly improving their options for those with food allergies, but those with severe multiple allergies will probably never be accommodated at such a large food operation that is run to make as much profit as possible. There is an annual allergen-free dessert party during Illuminations that is probably the safest option in the parks and has probably some of the best desserts a person with multiple severe allergies will ever taste in their life. As a last note, homemade cakes that are made with love are the most beautiful of all and you should never feel ashamed.

Hi Lorraine! The restaurants in Mexico are operated by an outside vendor with very limited cake choices (CLICK HERE and scroll down to the restaurant you’ll be dining at), but they can add a screen print to the cake for you. Does she have a favorite character you could have them put on the cake?

Hi. My name is Josie. My daughter is turning 16th on August 8th and want to order a cake “chocolate and vanilla cake” with buttercream topping with roses. We are staying at the art of animational resort. How much would it be for a 12 inch cake. Any suggestions how to make the cake look good for a 16 year old. Can it be delivered to my room and put in refrigerator by the resort? Thanks.

Reply

Carrie June 26, 2013 at 4:37 PM

Hi Josie! You will need to contact the resort directly to place your order and get a price quote—the phone number is on this page. I can tell you that 10-inch round cakes start at about $45 and go up, depending on the complexity of the decorations. Although it is possible to have the cake delivered to your room, a 12-inch cake will not fit in the mini-fridges found in the rooms and family suites at Art of Animation; you’d need to see if Bell Services could store the leftovers for you in their large refrigerator. As to the theme of the cake, I’d look to her favorite Disney characters, hobbies and interests. Once you start to work with the resort, they may be able to offer suggestions. Or try looking through the DISBoards’ Cake Chatter thread for inspiration.

Hi! I hope you got the email I sent when you first commented here. As I explained, Disney needs 48 hours’ notice to make custom cakes, but you can get a basic 6-inch chocolate or vanilla cake for $21 at the podium of any Disney restaurant except Victoria & Albert’s.

I’ve been searching for info about ordering a cake for a celebration at Be Our Guest. So far, I found information from last year about just being able to order one of these basic cakes. Do you know if that’s still true? If it is, then we may have to splurge at breakfast and get the (crazy-ridiculous) royal-highness package for our turning 7 year old princess.

Thanks!

Reply

Carrie July 22, 2013 at 9:00 AM

From the stories being shared on the DIS, it seems like there is more flexibility with cakes for Be Our Guest now, so I’d definitely talk to Private Dining at the Contemporary about your options before springing for that princess package!

Reply

Jaime July 22, 2013 at 9:11 AM

Thanks! I just sent an email off to ask about a cake! I have to admit though, after scouring through the DIS pictures earlier, and finding the breakdown of costs for the Royal Highness Package, either way it sounds like we’ll spend a lot! ;)

Apparently, the bundle is $60 for the cake, $20 for the tiara, and $10 for the balloon. Still, that would be at 8 in the morning. I guess I could have coffee to help with the sugar shock that early. Ha. Thanks again!

Well the closest would be BoardWalk Bakery, which is a shot walk or boat ride away, but you’d have to call them to find out if they can do an eggless cake. This page has the contact info. Babycakes Bakery at Downtown Disney is probably your best bet for an eggless cake, but it’s not super-close to the Swan & Dolphin: 407.938.9044

Hi! When you contact the Magic Kingdom cake department, they will let you know what’s available—it seems likely that they have a design they could screen print on the top with all those chracters. Full contact details are here. Most Disney restaurants have a free vanilla birthday cupcake you can get just by asking. That might be a good option for your breakfast at Chef Mickey’s.

Yes! You can request a cake like that at the podium, but it doesn’t always have Mickey on it. At places outside the Magic Kingdom it usually has just flowers. And yes they generally will stick a candle in it for you if you ask.

You’d need to talk to the resort or park where you plan on ordering the cake. While it is technically possible to do a screen print of just about anything on a 10-inch cake, Disney has a complicated set of licensing rules that sometimes prohibit them from putting certain Disney properties on cakes. Better to find out straight from the source!

Carrie August 5, 2014 at 11:30 AM

You can request a 6-inch “celebration cake” in all-chocolate or all-vanilla when you check in at the podium of any table-service restaurant. No need to order it ahead. It’s $23 and serves 5. Often it comes with a screen printed image of Mickey on a white chocolate disc atop the cake, but sometimes it’s just plain frosting on top with sprinkles. If you’re set on the Mickey head shape, occasionally BoardWalk Bakery has small versions of the large Mickey head cake in its case.
