    Hi
    If anyone has heard of a good place to get the wedding cake in Cabo San Lucas or has used one please pass on the information. I actually want an ice cream wedding cake so that may be hard to find.

      We used Jennifer Hatton.. she was really great to work with. She's originally from Canada and happens to be great friends with Deena from Sweet Dreams (also highly recommended by many.. I'm sure someone will post her info.)

      She used brown sugar to cover the bottom foil. Looks like sand and was very pretty.

          I highly recommend using Deena with Sweet Dreams, she is amazing! Our cake was the best cake I have ever had, and it was beautiful!

            I used Jennifer Hatton. She was the contracted vendor for Cabo Azul Resort. Here is our review:

            •Cake- Jennifer Hatton of Cabo Dessert Diva
            Flash Intro Page

            Grade C for service

            Grade A for taste/appearance
            We were forced to use Jennifer Hatton of Cabo Dessert Dive by CAR. She is their contracted cake baker. I would have liked to have more flexibility since the price was $9/slice!

            The Good- the cake was super yummy!

            The Bad- we had a really hard time working with Jennifer Hatton. We came up with a design for the cake only to be told we couldn’t have fondant in the heat. No problem, since from her pictures, it looked like her fondant work wasn’t that great anyway. The problem was, we gave her a picture for inspiration and she replied “we can’t do that, what other designs do you have?” WTF? She’s the cake baker, how about telling us what you CAN do

            I was so irritated with wedding planning at this point I let FI take this one. This dragged on for 3 weeks with no other suggestions from the cake baker. Our WC told us to pick a design or go without cake since they wouldn’t be able to design on for us.

            We ended up with a 2 tier, round, butter cream cake lined with ribbon I provided. It was very simple (we had our minds set on a fun “Ace of Cakes” cake) but not worth the cost or the hassle.

                The cakes look beautiful. I'm getting married at the Hilton and they said they have a wonderful pastry chef, but want to charge us $200 ($250 with tax) for a one tier cake (for 15). We wanted our cake to look more like a wedding cake and was wondering about different bakeries, so thanks for your input. NOW, I'm wondering if the Hilton would even let me bring in my own cake?

                  Cake prices in cabo are expensive. I hired Sweet Dreams for our cakes, we did individual wedding cakes for each of our quests and if I recall we paid $16.00 per cake (however one cake could easly have fed two people) But the cake was so amazing, by design and taste.

                    Patti - unless the Hilton has changed since I was there in May, cakes for the Hilton are made by Jennifer Hatton - Cabo Dessert Diva. Our cake was $10 pp, including tax, and was a set fee based upon amount of people and type of cake (and was the least expensive pp option). We did not have fondant and combined design elements from two other cake pictures we saw on her website, so was pretty straightforward. We loved our cake - looked and tasted beautiful.

                    Not sure why your base cake is so expensive- maybe they have a miniumum? But I would ask the Hilton and I would also contact Jennifer directly - she responded within a few day sto our emails and could work with you on design - don't see why she couldn't do a small two tier cake.
