Local Cake Vendor in Ocho Rios

Recommended Posts

Has someone used an outside vendor for their cake? If so, can you tell me who and send me a pic of your cake. Just trying to decide if I want to use the RIU's cake or get another one. Thanks

Ive heard Selena Wong cakes are beautiful..probably expensive... and Ive heard shes pretty hard to get ahold of, I think I read on here somewhere that someone was thinking of using her.

I was going to use Selena Wong but I pretty much ruled her out when she mentioned that the delivery fee to Ocho Rios was $175.00. That's more than half of my budget for my cake.

Im working with Selena now to get a definite price for a two tier wedding cake similiar to this one:

This is the message I received from her:

Hi Mo,

For 25 people you can have a 10" and 6" cake. That would be the smallest the next size would be 12" and 8". Sorry when you say rum cake is this the traditional Jamaican fruit cake or my light fruit cake or a rum cake like the tortuga rum cake? the Vanilla cake will be at the bottom?

My transportaion cost to Ocho Rios is JA$15000

The decorating cost on the cake you sent for a 2 tier using my sugar flowers is JA$18000

When you let me know which size and which flavour cake I can give you a final price on the cake. If you have family coming from Kingston maybe they will transport the cake to cut down on the cost .

Regards

Selena

 

The amount works out to 33,000JA and about 375US. Without transportation costs ( may have a relative pick the cake up), I'm looking at 205US. I haven't decided on outsourcing the cake just yet, I may go with the one provided by the resort and save some money.

Roughly about 89 bucks JMD per 1USD
1 USD = 88.2076 JMD

The JMD is very weak.

    • 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.

    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
