          The only suggestion I've heard is Margaret Myrie. I've read good things about her on this forum, but was disappointed when I contacted her for 3 reasons:

          1. She was very short with me (3 word e-mails etc.) and came off a bit rude...
          2. Price: I wanted a basic 3 tier white cake with NO decoration (I was going to bring my own ribbon for the tiers and my own flowers to decorate)...she quoted me something ridiculous over $400.
          3. The pictures she sent of cakes she's done didn't really even look nice...like lopsided,melty, and average at best.

          Obviously I haven't seen her product first-hand, so correct me if I'm wrong. Still looking for the "perfect cakebaker" so please, Negril brides--share your experiences! :)

            must be the only bakery in Negril, I have been checking around on other sites and this is the only name I get. If not the only, must be the best

              I am using Miss Myrie for my wedding in July. I tasted her cakes during a site visit in January and they were really good.

                $400 for a plain cake? How many people will it serve?

                  I asked for a quote for a "very basic cake...3 tiered, white cake, with our color (Tiffany blue) ribbon at the base of each tier, with bright orange and pink flowers going down the side. We can provide the ribbon and flowers"...for 40 guests.

                  The response I got back was, "$380-$400"

                  I then said, "Could you send me some pictures/examples of your cakes and prices? I was hoping to budget much less than that since it is such a simple, plain white cake with zero decoration. Thanks."

                  Miss Myries response, "I dont use cake mix. And here prices are quite high. And my cakes are layered with filling instead of icing."

                  I wrote back essentially saying I had budgeted a lot less for cake blah, blah, blah, and she suggested I order a cake for less people to cut the cost.

                  So,there ya go... :-/ lol

                    eek! Well since we're on the topic, and I know you're a fellow MDC bride. Has Kerry quoted you the reception costs yet? She told me $125 per person and they won't let me cut things out to lessen the price per person Oh, and with the tax and service charge it will be $150 perperson

                      yikes...I'm assuming you booked before it switched over to all-inclusive? The 5-course reception is free for me because all the guests are all-inclusive...They should let you cut some things out to reduce the price...doesn't seem fair!
