Cake-Negril

Recommended Posts

For those of you getting married in Negril-do you have any suggestions on a cake baker? Thanks!

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! :)

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.

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 sad.gif Oh, and with the tax and service charge it will be $150 perperson sad.gif

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!

    • Hello everyone. Who have a destination wedding in 2020? Do you postpone it or celebrate? Please share with you experience.
    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
