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.

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
