Dominican Cake YUM!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, has anyone ever ordered Dominican cake in Punta Cana or know of a place that makes them nearby?


We are not going to opt for the cake provided by the resort, every resort cake I've had for friends weddings have been mediocre.  I am Dominican from Santo Domingo (left to Florida at 10yrs of age) and I would suggest you try some Dominican cake in your nearby spanish neighborhood.  Dominican cake is AMAZING, they infuse the cake with layers of fresh fruit of your choice, and the cake itself melts in your mouth and it's a known amazing thing the people of the country take pride in.


For example, we had a Pot Luck for Thanksgiving here in Manhattan, my fiancee and I (at the time my gf) were one of the couples assigned with providing a dessert of our choice.  I quickly explained to her that we "have this one in the bag".  She smiled and told me what we were going to do, so I made a phone call to a Dominican dessert place in Brooklyn, New York, I asked them what part of the country they were from and they were from "El Cibao - Santiago" which I could quickly tell by their accent (means the cake is yummy) so we placed an order, they made the cake and I picked it up a few hours before the potluck.


Not one dessert was touched the entire evening!  People couldn't believe, good thing the cake was huge because people were taking some home. 

Anyway, I just want to avoid shipping one over from Santo Domingo the day of the wedding.  If someone makes it locally that would be ideal.  Just wanted to share with you all.


Overlook the cosmetics of this piece (it looks like its for a b-day party), look at the inside:




If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask!

Hi KevNYC, I actually make cakes for birthdays and weddings. I am not Dominican, but I can make an amazing Dominican cake. I make it with pineapple, guava or apple and real butter. My Dominican mother in law tought me. I also cover them in fondant with the design of your choice or meringue like in your picture. If you are interested contact me at cakestudiobavaro@gmail.com

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
