Wedding cake !

Recommended Posts

The decision of the cake is hard to make...chocolate lovers? vanilla lovers? both? Having a beach wedding means you will probably not see or taste your wedding cake before the wedding...

 

Here is a nice web site I found about beach cake:

 

Unique Beach Wedding Favors Gifts Cake Decorations Toppers Ideas

 

For those who are already married, would it be possible for you to put a picture of your cake and tell us about it (taste-texture-satisfaction...).

 

This will give all the future brides some ideas as well as some good advice ! Don't forget to tell us which hotel chef made the cake...that will help the brides getting married at the hotel you got married at (if it's the case)

 

 

Thanks !

Annie, I wish I could help you. Maggie and Tadd are having cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. Somewhere there is a picture that Tammy (host) posted. The picture is what Maggie has asked the baker to duplicate. Which reminds me, I need to order the cupcake liners b4 I forget again!

I do know that a some of the girls have gotten the Leche cakes. My granddaughter's mom is Mexican and for all of the birthday parties she orders this cake. Not one of my faves, but people who enjoy cake seem to really like it.

Hope someone else can help you. If I find the post w/the photo I will send it to you.

Here it is!

Thanks Lizzi ! Those are very cute cupcakes ! And yes, I did see Tammy's cupcake pictures (the one that got married to Cain not so long ago)! They were beautiful and that is what gave me the the idea to start this thread so we could all see everybodies cake (or cupcakes) at one precise place.

 

My granddaughter's mom is Mexican...I'm confused here...in other words your daughter is Mexican (or stepdaughter)huh.gif?

 

I will probably just end up in the kitchen with the chef and help him out baking the cake ... I wan't it to be simple but elegant as well as peanut free (and no ingredients that may contain traces of peanuts...like for example certain chocolates).

 

I love to bake but my talent as a cake decorations limits itself to Disney Princess, Dora the Explorer, Barbie and Winney the Pooh ! rofl.gif

 

I wish I could find a bakery in Riviera Maya that has peanut free cake... they are hard to find in Montreal so I can't imagine in Mexico !

This was made by the baker at Las Caletas. Tres leches, super moist, ultra creamy frosting (coolwhip-ish but tasted real), and was soooooo good. We didn't do any prior tastings and it was probably the best cake I ever had!

Hmmm I don't have my wedding pictures in front of me to post, but my slideshow has a pic of ours. (it's actually the very first slide) Ours were individual cakes, buttercream frosting with choc. ganache inside (we LOVE choc).. The cake was soo yummy, however the buttercream frosting was too much suger for my taste, but most icing is. (except the cheap stuff you can buy in the stores, I could eat that by the spoon full,, lol)

I think I am going to have the same issue. My FI is allergic to peanuts and chocolate! I want to go the cupcake route because I love chocolate. I'd like to do cheesecake, but I am picky with cheesecake (unless I make it or it is from Cheesecake Factory). I also don't care for buttercream frosting, but I don't know if whipped cream frosting will work. THe reception won't be outside so maybe we'll be OK.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
