    Hi Ladies,
    I have a cake question. Does any know of any cake bakeries in Jamaica (Ocho Rios). I reached out to Selena from SelenaWong Cakes and she repsonded to my first email and has not repsonded again, Im sure she is pretty busy. I just want to seek advice and see if I should go with the free cake that is part of the ROR package or what other options have you ladies tried? Im really trying to go for the traditional Jamaican Rum cake and all my guests are excited to try it and I dont want to let them down....

      I think on page 4 of this thread, someone provided contact info for a baker. Not sure if anyone else has tried that particular baker but you could always ask for a quote:

      I had the free cake & we loved it! One tier was filled with strawberrys & the other was chocolate. It was more than enough for our 30 guests.
      If you have your heart set on a rum cake then go for it.

      In the same thread above someone mentioned that they got half regular & half rum. Maybe thats an option as well.

      Oh, I knew that someone had just returned from ROR & commented on their rum cake. I found the thread:
      http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t35526
      She said the rum cake was pretty good. You could always ask her for more info!

        I would ask Chanadalyn of outside vendors that can do a rum cake. got a quote from the Riu-MB coordinator but they wanted $1000 US. WTF??!!

                      Yes there are different fillings. We had one layer of strawberry & one of chocolate.
                      You can get whatever fillings you like. You'll discuss that with Chandlyn when you meet her.
