Caterer/wedding cake in Lauderdale?

Hi there -- we are New Yorkers getting married in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea in March. Can anyone recommend a good caterer (we're thinking maybe steak / salmon menu?) and/or wedding cake bakery? We'll have about 50 people. Thanks!

      1. I don't know what your budget is; but Cafe Maxx, a terrific restaurant in Pompano Beach now caters. I'd give them a call.

        1. I am getting married in a month and I can HIGHLY recommend Todo Dulce for your cake. Their cakes are VERY different from anything else you will find in Miami-Ft Lauderdale area. Delicious. Food by Chef Lars will be doing our food...I can report back in a month, but the test dinner was great and they are soooo nice. They have made my life so easy. I knew I wanted to hire them the second I met them, and as a bride who can't handle stress and is not into the drama of the whole thing, I can tell you that is worth a million bucks. Good luck!!!

            Hey Yomyb --

              Hi fullmanti!

              Check out my post about it....


              Wish I could do it again! ;-)

                Oh yomyb, I totally have tears in my eyes reading that. It sounds fabulous. Plus I am hugely psyched (and relieved) because we picked Chef Lars for our March wedding. I got such a good vibe from them, the presentation of the food was terrific and the food itself was just to die for (at the tasting). Thank you so much -- I really appreciate your recco. All best wishes for a long and happy life together!

                1. re: fullmanti

                  I am sure your wedding will be lovely.... I wish you all the best ;-)

                  Say hi to Sonia for me. I just love her!

          2. Great local caterer I call on time and time again, great to work with and local:

            Thyme to Feast doesn't do cakes so check out in Fort Lauderdale:

            and in Miami (exquisite and unique and worth it):

              WOW! I'm not even getting married and I've selected one of Ana Paz's cakes already! :D They really are gorgeous!

                Just make sure you taste before ordering if you care about more than just the pretty factor. I have never loved her flavors and I have tried them several times.
