Wedding Cakes in Cabo

Recommended Posts

So i was having two thoughts about wedding cake. For one thing I'm not that crazy about cake to begin with. BUT my dad seems really upset by the idea of us not have a wedding cake.

 

The Hilton charges either 10/pp or a 3/pp "cutting fee" if you bring your cake in from outside... so with let's say 50 people that's a $500 cake! So this brings me to my next point - cupcakes.

 

A) Do you think if we served individual serving/ wrapped (therefore no plates or forks needed) cupcakes I could talk the Hilton into waiving the $3/pp "cutting fee." At this point there would be nothing to cut and they couldn't even say that we would need their plates and service...

 

B) I just like the idea of cupcakes - a friend even said that you can buy these tiered cupcake trays to put them together in the shape of a cake!

 

So on that note, any recommendations for bakeries? I wonder if cupcakes would be more or less expensive. I feel like then should be less... I mean who's ever heard of a $10 cupcake!?! Even here is Los Angeles that's outrageous!

I like the idea. HOWEVER, actully cupcakes can be more money depending on the design you choose. You have to remember they would have to cut and decorate several cakes versus just one. So overall you could spend more money. If the Hilton charges a cake cutting fee then it may even out in the end.

That stand is exactly what I meant - doesn't that look so cute? We were considering the pie idea ourselves! But my dad sure wantys that cake (who knows why - I'm not even sure he eats cake!)

this might be cheesy... but Costco and City Club (Sam's Mexico) has cupcakes that are pretty good. You could decorte them your selves?

Isn't it funny how when a wedding happens people get all weirdly traditional? Like your dad and cake - you don't even know if he eats it but he's gotta have it there. I'm surprised by my family - my mom has never looked at her guest book from her wedding but if I don't have one at mine it might be the end of her world.

 

Back to the real topic of cupcakes - to keep costs down you might just have them all frosted in one plain color then accent the stand with fresh flowers. You could also plunk a strawberry on each one.

Lala,
I like your idea of just decorating with a few flowers and maybe a strawberry! I was also thinking that maybe I could have them just frost half in one color (white?) and half in another (TBD?). Plop some flowers around them and wah-la! Instant cake!

I know, it is really weird how traditional people become. I think a lot of it is "what would people think!?!" though, which is so annoying. Nobody seems to ever even eat the cake at wedding I've been to in the past... oh well... if the man wants cake then cake he shall have (possibly little cakes in cups though!)

Kashmira,

 

I LOVE the cupcake idea! And arranging them on a stand like that with flowers will be beautiful and should surely suffice your dad.

 

Further to the above suggestion, I've had cakes from Costco before and they're sooo good and VERY reasonably priced! So that may definately be something to consider!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
