My husband and I were extremely happy with our cake vendor, Cakes By Gina! Our cake flavors were not only delicious but the cake was beautiful. Gina really listened to our request and the design of our cake suited our simple style perfectly. We recommend her 100%!
Cakes by Gina did a phenomonal job bringing our vision to life! We used this great team to make our wedding and groom's cake. It only took one meeting of going over likes, dislikes and vision and they nailed our vision entirely on the head! Even better, the cake is wonderful; very moist and the icing and fillings were the perfect amount of sweet. Many of our wedding guests asked for second servings.
One of our favorite steps of the wedding planning process was the cake tasting. There are so many options and flavoring combinations- Gina really has perfected the art of a great tasting and great looking cake. And I highly recommend the lemon with lemon ganache!! So good!
Our groom's cake was quite the show stopper. They can make almost anything! You will not be disappointed with Gina and her crew!
Our cake was perfect! They used the lace of my dress as their design inspiration, and it was beautiful! The grooms cake was the A&M seal in gold and maroon. It was an exact replica of the top of my husband's ring. Also, the cakes tasted delicious! They had a lot of cake flavors and icing flavors to choose from. I would highly recommend Cakes By Gina!
Picking Cakes by Gina was an easy choice for me as my family had already had experience with her and we loved her work so she was the only cake meeting I had. The meeting went well and we got all the details knocked out quickly. When we went back for a cake for something else before my wedding, I saw a groom's cake I liked more than the original one I had selected so I asked them to change it to that one but modified it a bit. They ended up delivering it exactly how it was in the store without my changes but they were minor so I didn't let it ruin my overall opinion of it. I was however very upset by one thing. We delivered my cake topper to Gina's the week before the wedding and made a point to mention several times that there were 2 pieces to the topper in the box. It was even written on the box but when we arrived after the ceremony, it was already set up and there was only one piece of our topper on the cake! I was really upset and tried to not let it ruin my mood but the second half of the topper was very important to me. Plus, I had it custom made and paid a good amount for it. My mom tried calling to find out where the other half was and could not get in touch with anyone. They also never called us back, it wasn't until my mom took the base back that she mentioned it to them and they said to tell me they were sorry. They never bothered calling me to personally apologize or anything which made me really mad. The cakes were gorgeous and delicious which is why I gave them 4 stars but I just still have a bitter taste in my mouth about them leaving off half of my cake topper. I know it was just an oversight on their part but it was a big deal to me.
Cakes by Gina did a fantastic job on our wedding cakes, and I say this as someone who is not a cake person. My mother-in-law was horrified when I decided to do a small two tiered cake and hide sheet cake in the back. She begged me to do something that would be a show stopper and let me tell you - our cakes were the most talked about part of our reception. My six tiered flower petal cake was beautiful. Gina worked with my flourist and had the flowers placed on upon delivery. She also outdid herself on the groom's cake! So many people couldn't even tell it was a cake it looked so authentic! My husband did a keg of his favorite brewery, complete with chips and salsa. Gina put real beer bottles at the top of the keg, but everything looked so authentic our guests were trying to guess if the bottles were real or not. We didn't even know until we cut into the cake.
The cake tasting was perhaps my most favorite part of the whole process! She really catered to us and was extremely professional. The level of detail she puts into her wedding cakes is amazing. You need to book way in advance though. She books up months prior! I hope you are lucky enough to get a spot!
Cakes by Gina is absolutely wonderful. The cake was not only beautiful but great tasting.
We had a 6 tier cake done for our wedding by Gina! It was unique because it had a brooch cascade. Gina made the cake look exactly how I had imagined it. It was beautiful! She also made the groom's cake even better than the picture I showed her! We served about 200 pieces of different flavors, and it was all gone! She will absolutely make sure that the cake is everything you want.
My cake tasted AMAZING!! Everyone at the wedding told me how good it was (I did different flavors: Italian creme, lemon and chocolate) It was moist and flavorful. My husband had tres leches and he enjoyed it also.
We even had some left over the next day and it was amazing. :)
Gina made the cakes look exactly as she designed/drew it.
We thought we paid a lot for the cakes, but it was definitely worth the money. We are so happy we went with Gina!
We just had our son and daughter-in-law's wedding on 8/31/14 at Agave Real. Gina did both the wedding and grooms cake. They were gorgeous. The simplicity and elegance that the Bride wanted was perfected by Gina. When we had our first meeting we described to her what we were looking for in the Grooms cake. He's a chef and Gina started drawing and came up with the perfect design that reflected his profession. The cakes were not only beautiful but so delicious. Moist and the flavor was terrific. I chose them based on friend's recommendations and trust me she and her staff did a great job!
Our cake came out to be PERFECT and just as we asked! We absolutely loved it. Cakes by Gina offered great service, great tasting cake, and a great staff! We tried multiple cake places and was definitely satisfied with Cakes by Gina. Her pricing also was not that bad. I highly recommend!! We had no issues!!!
My experience with Cakes by Gina was very pleasant.My cake
was beautiful. Gina's ideas for the cake insides design was flat out the best!!!!
The cakes taste itself was so delicious. I can honestly say that I had never tasted a cake like mine.I got a lot of compliments.The one thing I was not happy with was that I was told I would have to go boxes for the guest instead I received one big box for myself to take home.
Gina was an amazing person to work with ,she worked within our budget she treated us amazingly and with professionalism. Me and my husband were very happy with the service,the wedding cake and grooms cake they were beautiful. Gina's cakes are a work of art.
... my husband, mother in law and I ate the rest of the wedding cake that was left over after the reception it was Delicious....We highly reccommend her!!!
Gina made excellent recommendations and made exactly what was in the picture I gave her. I loved three flavors and she said that it was completely possible to do all three. She made three different cakes with three delicious flavors and then on top of that an amazing looking groom's cake that looked like a pot of succulents. The groom's cake had an entirely different flavor as well. Everyone thought it was delicious and had a great time guessing which flavor they had.
The cake was exactly how I designed it to be. It was very beautiful I received a lot of compliments on the cake. The cake was very moist and delicious. I will recommend Cakes by Gina to any one. Great service and 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
The Grooms Cake was delicious and was a piece of art. The red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting was superior!
From the tasting (served on fine china) to the quick responses by email, Cakes by Gina is wonderful. I highly recommend them!!!!
Cakes by Gina treats you like family. The detail on both bride and groom cake was impeccable!!!!!!!! I chose tres lechess 3 tier. My groom chose chocolate in the designed automobile he cherishes! I have already referred people I know. Loved loved loved the service and set up at reception. Thank you Gina from the bottom of my heart! Tammy Christmon-Southworth.
Cakes by Gina is the BEST cake person in Houston! Their cakes are so moist and tasty. Most cakes are dry by the time of the wedding, but Cakes by Gina's cake was so perfect! They designed my cake exactly the way I envisioned it! My husband wanted a tricky grooms cake, and at first we were not sure if they could do it, but they made professional suggestions to help get us the grooms cake of his dreams! My bridal cake was butter cream, which is always amazing, and my husbands grooms cake was fondant. Usually fondant is hard to cut and doesn't taste good, but their fondant was thin and super easy to cut and tasty! I was so pleased with everything about Cakes by Gina! I will definitely recommend them to anyone I can!
I am so happy to have asked Gina to be our wedding cake vendor! I met Gina after scheduling a complimentary cake tasting at her shop. I selected several flavors to try, and because I couldn't decide on just one favorite, I ended up selecting 3 different flavors for my 4 layer cake.
I also went into that first meeting with only a vague idea of what I wanted for my wedding cake. Gina patiently worked with me to incorporate all my vague thoughts into a very beautiful creation. She also quoted a price that I found fair compared to my research and budgeting calculations. In fact, considering her experience, professionalism, and talent, her price was a great deal!
On and after my wedding day, we received several compliments on Gina's cake, both on how pretty it was and how yummy it tasted! I didn't get to eat much during my wedding, but our venue packed a to-go box with wedding cake, and we had some the next day. It was still fresh, moist, and delicious!
I had excellent interactions with Gina every step of the way. She really knew what she was doing, and she put me at ease by being responsive to all my inquiries. I can't imagine having had a better wedding cake or wedding vendor!
Gina did an amazing job!!!!!!!!!
