Hilton Brides

Recommended Posts

Did any of the Hilton brides use the chef there for their wedding cake? When I did my site visit awhile back, we tasted cakes and found one we really liked. But, I am a little nervous when it comes to the appearance. Does anyone have any comments on their cake at the Hilton? Thanks ladies.

I'm getting married at the Hilton in April 08. I seeked out Jennifer Hatton on my own and met her during my site visit in July. Turns out she is who the Hilton outsources anyway.

We liked the Hilton cake also. When we did the site visit they introduced us to the pastery chef, but when we inquired about it later they said it was Jennifer Hatton who does the cakes. Our's was ok. Just make sure it's baked the same day as your wedding and not in advance. It will defiantly taste different it they make it ahead and refriderate it.

Interesting. So I've heard good things about Jennifer on the forum. Was everyone happy with the appearance? I had shown the chef at the Hilton a pic of a cake I liked, and he said they had never done anything like it before. It made me a little nervous about trying it. Maybe I should ask who will actually be doing the cake. Also, does anyone know if there is a big price difference between going to Jennifer directly vs. going through the Hilton? I would guess that the Hilton would charge a fee to bring a cake in from outside, right? Time to do some investigating.... Click the image to open in full size.

Since I did a room block at the Hilton, they are not charging me anything extra to bring in the cake from outside (I also had this added to my contract.) And they have waived the cake cutting fee.

Jennifer charges about $4.50 - $5.00 per person (not per slice like others do.) If you want a square cake, she charges an extra $10 per tier as a design fee since it takes her much longer to do. Hope this helps.

    • 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.
