Do you ever wonder just how the chefs create those amazing cakes in the Disney Parks restaurants? What’s between the delectable layers? How do they make a slice of cake look like a piece of art? This is the first of a new Disney Parks Blog series – “Bake Me a Cake” – taking you behind the scenes in the kitchen with some of our favorite chefs who show us their “cake beauty” secrets.

We’re starting with Chef Andreas Born at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, whose chocolate cannoli cake is a winning combination of devil’s food chocolate cake, cannoli cream filling, ganache, a swirl of chianti red wine sauce and a crunchy hazelnut Florentine cookie. He makes it look so easy, and shares a couple of great baking tips.

No recipes – you’ll have to visit Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano for a slice of deliciousness!

Do you have a favorite Disney cake that you’d like to see one of the Disney chefs create?


  • He makes it look so easy and fast. That would take me most of the day and my kitchen would look like a disaster zone at the end of it!

  • Pam, this looks SERIOUSLY AMAZING!!!

  • Annette,
    Just use your hemisphere silicone mold upside down

  • Eclairs from the Boardwalk Bakery (okay it’s a pastry not a cake, you got me).

  • If this first video is any indication of this new blog series, I’m going to love it!

    Looks so delicious!

  • Well that looked effortless! I want to try it now! Time to get out pots, pans, and molds now!

  • Now I’m looking all over online to try and find that silicon mat that he’s using and can’t find it – anyone know where I can buy one? I have to try this!

  • How about the cake doughnuts from Downtown Disney’s Babycakes NYC?

  • I assume everyone by now has made the obvious comment that great chefs are Born, not made? :)
    (And I’ll second the Zebra Dome.)

  • Boma’s Zebra Dome please? :)

  • That looks delicious! I always enjoy the chef’s segments on here. keep it up!

  • This is a cool blog series. Very interesting to watch. Its not cake, but I would love to see how they make the Apple Crumble at the Sci-Fi Dine In Restaurant at Hollywood Studios. That stuff is absolutely delicious!

  • Grapefruit cake from Brown Derby, please!

  • Yes! I’d like to see them make the peanut butter chocolate cake they used to sell at BoardWalk Bakery!

  • Great to watch, and now I want to try one!! :)
