    Hi,

    May I make a suggestion, you can get a cake vendor from Montego Bay to deliver the cake as it is nearby and the delivery charge may equal the same for the prices of her cakes or maybe even less or another suggestion is since you are all staying at hotels and most large hotels have good pastry chefs who could do it in an around about way and find out who he or she is and see if you can work out something privately. They do alot of private work and alot of the hotel staff know each other well and will tell you if the person is good or not. If you have friends in Jamaica you can ask them to call and check for you.

    But personally when I have events I bring cakes in from elsewhere.

        Noida Cooke who is doing my neices cake is based in Montego Bay, but she delivers island wide. She is doing a three tiers 14" 10" and 6" in chocolate/chocolate ganache with roses and ribbon for decor. You can see pictures of her cakes and contact her at:

        Hope this helps.

            Seems like cupcakes are the way to go for me. My hotel said they wouldnt charge me because that will be the dessert. Also if I want a one tier cake she'll charge me $150.

            I think that cupcakes are better otherwise there will be alot of cake left. You can get a good cupcake count based on your guest booked.

              Has anyone heard of, or tried, "Love Cakes Jamaica"?? I saw them on FB, but not too much else out there.

                  I'm going with Cherry.  I got her information from Helen G and she was $100 cheaper than Miss Myrie's.  I'll let you all know how it turns out very soon!!!

                    Hi Meitra - Who is Cherry? I did a quick Google search using Cherry Cakes and Jamaica, but came up empty handed. Thanks!

                      I was told that she does the cakes for Riu Negril.  Her name is Novia Reid, but she goes by Cherry.
