Does anyone have photos of the food set up with Carnival? I've looked through many reviews but haven't seen many photos of the foods/drinks.

Thank you!

I've seen photos of the basic cake that you get with carnival. I have heard (on here) that you can have them do a bit more detail or perhaps texture the icing, etc. Can anyone give me an idea of what types of modifications they can do to the wedding cakes?

I also have read many of you add ribbon on edible decorations/flowers. If I go that route, who actually puts those things ONTO the cake? If I bring them along, will someone in the kitchen add those details for me, or will I need someone with me to do it? (I'm a bit nervous asking one of my guests to alter the cake!)

I'd love to see some photo of modifications people have had with the wedding cake. THANKS!!

Look for Shatima's review- she had some pics of the food.

Also, there's a whole cake thread- I think it's called show me your cake.

We did the 1.5 hour reception option through Carnival with the food (mostly appetizers of sorts) & ice sculpture. While I don’t have any pictures of the actual food, you can get a general idea of the setup by these photos. We couldn't say enough good things about the food options & presentation. The bar just operated as an open bar for the reception. Hope this helps!

Thank you! The last 2.5 years since then have literally flown by!
These pictures really don't do the presentation justice! Carnival did a great job with the setup!

I tried uploading my pic. Hopefully, it worked. The food was beautiful and delicious. My wedding coordinator made me a plate and made sure I ate. My guests were pleasantly pleased. The only complaint I got was that they wish they had known it was going to be so good or they would not have ate so much on the Lido Deck. Good problem to have.

My guests didn't want to go to dinner after the reception like we'd planned. I'm glad we didn't book the Steakhouse for dinner like we wanted.
