Cake Flavors and Fillings for Aventura Spa Palace
Posted 21 April 2010 - 01:53 AM
I have received from the WC a very plain jane template of cake flavors we can choose. However, what I would like to know from any past brides if you were able to talk them into doing anything a little more adventurous? What kind of cake did you do and with what fillings? Did they charge you more for it? If you did choose one of their options, how was it? When you write your experience, please tell me if you are really picky about your desserts/food or if you are impressed easily. This will help me a lot in knowing what to decide.
Thanks a bunch!

If you can bring decor: ribbon, toppers, etc. for your cake, I don't see why they wouldn't accept the filling from you too!

All it said was "Cake included/Flavor: Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Fruit, Lemon, or Cheese."
I am a pastry chef, so my expectations are a lot higher than the average joe, so I hear you on being a dessert snob. It looks like they included the cake flavors and fillings in one sentence, otherwise I'm going to be really nervous about what to expect! I just want it to taste good. So far, tres leches is my first choice, but it's not listed. But, I was really curious to see what other brides have/had chosen for fillings.
I don't want to bring my own filling; it's too much of a hassle, thanks for the tip though. I know I would be disappointed too because I would want it freshly made and not out of a container.

Based on the cakes that I've seen from other bride's photos, it doesn't appear that any of the Palace resorts employ a pastry chef, which leads me to believe that whoever does the cakes just sticks to the basics. I did hear that the cakes actually tasted good, but of course, "good" is a relative term.
You may want to post your question on the threads of previous and recent Palace brides too. I frequent the Moon Palace 2010 Brides (lots of recent brides) thread and Moon Palace 2008 & 2009 thread. Believe it or not, this thread is still active and getting posts. I hope that others see this post too, because I'm very interested.

"I also told them to KICK up the cake taste up a notch...I picked a menu and changed things around...took things out and added things in...things that were in the restaurants that I liked to eat...also I had a three tier cake chocolate with chocolate mousse...(the bottom tier) the middle tier was pineapple cheesecake and the top was vanilla with vanilla pudding...my least favorite."
I would love to hear of more experiences from other ASP brides!
