    I wanted to get some feedback from past ROR brides on their cakes. How did it taste? Did anyone upgrade their cake?

    It seems like a vanilla cake with strawberries used to be included in the free package but now there is only chocolate and vanilla to choose from. I asked how much to upgrade to a cake with one layer strawberry shortcake and one layer a traditional Jamaican rum cake (which I really don't want but, since my family is Jamaican, everyone else is expecting it) and it was $250.

    I guess it's cheap as far as wedding cakes go but for 20 people it isn't really worth it. I may just bring a rum cake from home! A family member can make it or I can just buy one for $30 or so. Has anyone done this?

    Any feedback on their cakes would be helpful!

      oh no I was hoping to have a rum cake instead of strawberry. But there is no way I am paying 250.00. My niece's husband's family is from Jamaica and they made the traditional rum cake for their wedding. OMG thats all I can say lol it was amazing. Unfortunatly my neice and I had a falling out so any hope of his family making me a cake is out of the question!

        I have not had my wedding yet but I read in a forum that it was pointless to upgrade becasue after everyone ate, lots passed on the cake. I do have a email for the cake person that works with the rui if you wanted to upgrade. I got it from chadelyn. Ill email it to you!

          Thanks. I have Shelia's email. That's who gave me the quote. I've been reading that some people seemed to get a cake that wasn't chocolate or vanilla without asking for it so maybe that will happen. I'm still considering bringing a rum cake though.

            Hi
            I had the caprice package and chose the chocolate cake. It was fine as cakes go. It was the standard one included in the package and there was plenty for 18 people. I wouldn't upgrade though I don't think they are worth it. I think they will add rum if you ask.
            We made up for it when we got back home at our reception, and had a 3 tier proper cake, bottom layer chocolate, second tier carrot cake and top tier fruit cake. It was shapped like 3 suitcases and was lovely!

              We're not doing an at home reception so no way to make up for the cake. It's good to know they can add some rum to it. That may be a nice compromise.

                I just got back from ROR and my wedding was August 8, 2009. Nikki gave me the choice of just either chocolate or vanilla or both. I chose both, 2 tiers were chocolate and 1 tier was vanilla. The frosting is a buttercream and to my surprise the cake was actually very good. Usually wedding cakes don't taste too great but this was a pleasant surprise. Don't waste your money to upgrade, I had 42 people at my wedding and it was plenty. Good luck!

                    As for some advice, try to meet with the wedding planners asap! Go to the Photo Shop immediately right after. Do not upgrade your cake it's not worth the $. Do choose the extra white runner, it added such an elegant touch to the wedding. Also if the planners change things on you, expect it. They change the restaurant on me from Mammee Bay to Plantation. Make sure you remind them to give you breakfast in bed cause they forgot ours. Remind the people are you entitled to the free room upgrades with your package. Good luck and have fun, remember it's your day and who cares if things don't go perfect , trust me noone will notice! They will just notice you , Take care

                      Thanks for the link Natalie. Did you have to pay extra for the flowers on it or order them in advanced or were they included?
