For medical reasons, I eat a strict gluten-free diet. I booked my wedding at The Royal Playa del Carmen because I had read a review from a fellow Celiac who said the resort went out of their way to make sure her meals where gluten-free. I have asked about a gluten-free wedding cake, which they said they can do, but I'm very nervous about how it will taste. Has anyone had a gluten-free cake made in Playa del Carmen and would recommend the baker? I'm actually a pastry and arts student and can definitely make my own gluten-free cake, but I'm nervous about how I would ever get it to Mexico (I live outside Washington DC).
In addition, my sister is deathly allergic to shellfish - I know, why on earth did I choose a caribbean wedding! I just wanted to see if anyone else has dealt with the shellfish allergy at The Royal or local establishments in Playa del Carmen. What have your experiences been? I have emailed my contact at the hotel and am hoping to arrange a meeting with the Food & Beverage Director upon my arrival. Unfortunately this will be three days before the wedding, so we're kind of stuck at that point.
Thanks for any advice!
