Bake Me a Cake – Pastry Chef Andreas Born at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

posted on August 10th, 2011 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer

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?

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!

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

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!


Corin on August 10th, 2011 at 5:08 pm

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

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

Looks so delicious!

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


janice from AZ on August 11th, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Just use your hemisphere silicone mold upside down

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!
