    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'll let you know who I am using and how much my cake is once I find out who the preferred vendor is for my TA (who she uses)

            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:
                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  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.

                    What does 15000JA equate to in US dollars?

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

                      The JMD is very weak.
