JAMAICAN CAKE BAKER!

 

As promised I have tracked down a local cake baker (after a recent trip to Negril) who makes beautiful wedding cakes in Jamaica. He can make traditional jamaican rum and fruit cakes as well as other "traditional" western style wedding cakes.

 

With photos he can even recreate designs or cake styles from other bakers.

 

His cakes are "straight from the source" as many of the hotels and wedding planners in Negril and surrounding areas hire him as a vendor to make the cakes that you would order from the hotel.

 

His name is Pete and his direct number is 876-852-4522.

 

He is based in Negril but can deliver to other parts of Jamaica including Ocho Rios and Montego Bay.

 

You must call him for pricing etc. as cakes vary in size and fillings, decorations.

 

His pricing should be reasonable but everything is negoitable so I recommend that do you best to stay within your budget.

Enjoy your cake!

If you can come up with something else let me know. My mother bakes cakes for a living and to not use hers would be insulting.

You are definitely right about how heavy the cake will be. I really really don't want to have to do this, and also have to bring a dress and all that OOT stuff too! Ugh not looking too good.
Did you decide what to do about this? Now my aunt in Florida is saying she will bake the rum cake for us (she's already soaking the fruit from summer) and wants to carry it down... not sure how yet!

Another dual citizen here...getting married in yaad to another dual citizen. Am I the only Jamaican who loooooves rum cake? No suh! I am in JA as we speak and met w/ 2 bakers in the Ochi area today for tastings. Both very different....1 a lighter fruit pudding, the 2nd a heavier, denser fruit cake. They are the 2 bakers that are preferred vendors of my venue, so if I venture outside of them, I will incur a $200 vendor fee and so you know the cake mus be wicked to pay that fee, plus cheaper. My wedding is for 100 ppl, so the quotes I've gotten is $500 and $700. Anyone know another baker in the Ochi area that makes a to-die-for fruit cake that makes the $200 fee worth it?

I have family in Jamaica and plan to have my aunt commission the cake for us. I have noticed (sadly), that there seems to be an "American tax" added immediately whenever the vendors hear that your from the states. But if the cake goes over $300, I may have to for go it altogether.
