Occasions your first port of call.
Cakes are another of our specialities. Our Jamaica rum fruit cake is second to none, we have a recipe that has been passed down through generations of our family. Not to give away any family secrets, I can disclose that all our rum cakes are laced with Wray and Nephew White Overproof Jamaican rum, no other rum will do! We also offer a selection of sponge cakes i.e. vanilla, lemon, chocolate or chocolate orange. All our cakes are priced to include sugar paste covering. Room Styling is another service that we offer, we can transform your venue to meet your dreams. If you fancy dress your venue yourself why not take advantage of our Equipment Hire Service. We have chair covers, centrepieces etc.
Our business truly offers a full service, unlike many other caterers claim. As well as specialising in Caribbean catering, we also offer rentals on chair covers, linen, crockery and silverware. We also have a warehouse full of room styling items; from candelabra and mirror plates to vintage post boxes and wedding backdrops.
