Help finding Wedding Cake Vendors

Recommended Posts

Hi

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

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

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 dohuh.gif

 

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.

    • 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
