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!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
