Wedding Cake

Recommended Posts

My FI would like a traditional Jamaican wedding cake (fruit/rum cake) and not the free cake offered by ROR. The cake and the ceremony are the only details that he cares about!

 

Is/has anyone used an outside bakery for their wedding cake? If so, can you recommend a good bakery in Ocho Rios.

 

I'm sure I'll need to get special permission from the hotel or Chandlyn to have an outside vendor bake and deliver the cake.

 

.....happy planning ladies!

I could be mistaken, but I think I've read in other threads that you get a choice b/w vanilla, chocolate or rum cake. Don't quote me on that though! Probably not as yummy as an outside bakery, either.

I was not expecting him to have such a strong reaction to the cake choices, but he did. Thanks for the name of the bakery. I'll contact her for more information. If anyone else has a name, please feel free to pass it along.

I e-mailed Chandlyn and she also gave me Ms. Movery's contact information and she it would be OK to bring in a cake. She (Chandlyn) quoted the starting price for a traditional Jamaican rum cake as $350.00. Ouch! That seems a little high for 10-15 people.

Ok so I'm in Jamaica now, checked out my venue today, and met with Mrs. Movery to taste her cake, as well as the cake of another baker that my venue uses. Mrs. Movery's cake was decent...a lighter fruit pudding, as opposed to a heavier, dense fruit cake that the other baker had. Both tasted ok. But I am very picky...and being Jamaican, I've had some reeeeally good fruit cakes over the years, so I've tasted many others to compare them to. I think you'll like Mrs. Movery's cake. But if you want the name of the other baker and like a heavier cake, I can get that contact info for you. Just let me know.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
