Beautiful! This may be something I need to revisit for my October stay. Chef Jessie is also doing my cakes and I know I will be in good hands.Here's my favorite of the cakes from my last trip! I still can't get over the incredible details created by Chef Jessie at the Yacht & Beach Club!
I've seen a lot of requests for Coco-themed cakes lately, so I wanted to see what the Yacht & Beach Club could come up with. As usual, they told me they couldn't do an actual Coco theme due to legal blah blah blah, but they were happy to do a generic Dia de los Muertos theme. The only direction I gave them was that it had to light up and I wanted it to be "the most amazing mini cake you've ever created"—which the guy taking my order wrote into my cake order form verbatim!
- What: Coco/Dia de los Muertos mini cake
- Where: Yacht & Beach Club
- When: March 1, 2019
- Flavors: Red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream frosting
- Price: $96 + $3 Private Dining delivery fee and 18% service charge
The quote that came back was $96 with a light-up skull or $86 with no light and flowers, so of course I went for the skull! This is what I got...
The private dining cast member who set the cake up for me picked out the plates himself and did a fantastic job with presentation. He also told me it was Chef Jessie who created the cake, and, man, I wish I could shake her hand! The amount of detail work she did was unbelievable—look at those tiny fondant candles! And the sacred hearts and papel picado? Plus that intricate detail on the skull?! I could barely bring myself to cut into it! But of course I did...
Overall, my two recent experiences ordering custom cakes from Yacht & Beach Club have been the best in years. They have a dedicated number for submitting an order, they have talented staff to fulfill your requests, they respond in a timely manner, they execute exactly what you've ordered, and they are quite accommodating of special requests. I wish all the Deluxe resorts were this on-the-ball!
