I'm glad somebody you brought this up. My parents are Jamaican too and they want a rum cake but I know we've got to have a yellow cake for FI's side too.

 

Somebody mentioned doing a split-layer cake (traditional rum cake/yellow cake): have you had this before & how did it work out?

Oh. My. Goodness. I am so glad that someone else is having the torture of the cake favors. I thought my mom was the only one on this tip.

$350 for the cake? Not bad. can you post the pics of what you are looking at? The Fondant icing is a must here as well.

who knew that we had so many Jamaican Brides on here!! Anywho, I sent Chandlyn an email to see about splitting the layers and of course, I've been waiting for her to respond. I think the resort is charging $250 for the cake that I want.

I've attached the pic of cake that I sent to Chandlyn but w/ 3-tier.

The other attachment is of the cake favour boxes I'm using.

If it doesn't work I'll have to PM you the pics

My mother just got to JA today w/ 3 cakes. 2 were cut up and put in a cooler type bag and the other wasn't cut. All have to fondant on already. She made it down safely and the cakes are in good shape. Thank God!

BTW: your cake is lovely.

Jamie.

Thanks Jamie.
It's always stressful when going back because my mother has to bring for everyone. The luggage is always overweight and too much drama. So glad there was no drama and all is well. Hope I can say the same for my flight on Monday!

Your cake is pretty jamie!

 

So i spoke to my mother again today and kept getting ""Why a cooler bag?" when I explained how your mom brought the cake up mich.

 

I am actually going to place the cake for favors in cello bags and then place those bags in the cake boxes and then in a carry on bag.

 

As for the tiers of the wedding cake I still dont know what to do. Maybe I can tell her (my mother) again to get a large cooler bag....:sigh:.

It's not a cooler but looks like one. Or maybe like a camera bag. I think it worked out good because the sides and bottom are firm, as oppose to a duffle bag where they can slide all over the place. But my mother also told me that you can't freeze it, and w/ that hot sun having it in a cool place (mostly for the icing) wouldn't be a bad thing.

I didn't put them in boxes yet because I thought the boxes would crush.

Good luck with your mother. You kinda have to let them do what they want. You can suggest things but let dem gwan, is arrite.

Wow, I can relate to your dilemna. I am Jamaican and my fiance is American. Most of my family will be attending our wedding in Ocho Rios at Beaches, so we must have a jamaican rum cake. I am actually going to have 2 cakes, one american and then pay extra for a Jamaican cake that the resort bakes. Hope it is yummy! Well hope you get your solution soon! Good luck!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
