The cake of my dreams posted 1/22/2014 (modified 1/23/2014)

Gambino's Bakery went above and beyond my expectations on our wedding cake. It was the most beautiful cake I had ever seen, and it was SO delicious!
Our wedding cake was truly one of a kind. I told the coordinator that I wanted it to shine, and that I wanted it to be fun yet elegant. I showed them the style of shape that I liked and they gave me suggestions from there. It was more than I expected and fit the style of the wedding perfectly. I was absolutely obsessed with it! I definitely recommend Gambino's Bakery to all of my friends and family looking for delicious, beautiful cakes.

Best Wedding Cake posted 4/8/2014 (modified 4/9/2014)

On a whim, because we were in that part of town, my mom, fiance, and I popped into Gambino's (one of the three contracted companies with our venue) to see about scheduling an appointment to talk about our wedding cake. To my surprise, the lady sat with us right then and there to discuss options. We were in and out in half an hour after personalizing the flavor of the cake, the filling, and finalizing the design for the icing.
The cake arrived looking perfect and it tasted just as nice. It was soft and moist and delicious, just like a cake should be. All of our guests got cake and mentioned how much they liked it.
Other companies in New Orleans may do better with fancy fondant and sugar paste designs, but if you want great flavor without all the fuss of something that looks like it shouldn't be edible, come to Gambino's.

I got both my wedding cake and grooms cake from Gambino's. Both were very good. I could not believe how good my wedding cake came out. I brought them a picture of a cake that I liked and changed a few things. It came out better than I though it would. I would definitely recommend getting your cake here. Very reasonably priced.

Love their cakes! Horrible detail on cake though.. posted 2/18/2014 (modified 2/20/2014)

Their cakes taste amazing which makes up for me really caring about the detail of the cake. I brought in pictures of some cakes with lace patterns on them and they said they could make what I was looking for with the appliqués in chocolate and place on cake like I had in picture but when the wedding time came and I saw the cake it looked as if someone just tried to make designs with piping. They charged me a lot of extra money for the appliqués detail and they did not come through when the time came.

I am so sorry that you were not 100% satisfied with your cake. We are happy you enjoyed the taste of the cake. According to our records, you changed the fondant appliques to butter cream lace to match your dress. The lace pattern of your dress can ...

Will use again and again posted 2/1/2014 (modified 2/2/2014)

I have always loved Gambinos and when I got engaged, there was no question I would be using Gambinos for cakes. Our wedding cake was not only gorgeous, but delicious. The groom's cake was so fun and a hit at the wedding as well. We were able to have a little taste test meeting and go over exactly how we would want our cake. The staff at Gambinos were very patient and just plain nice!

Wedding and Groom's Cakes posted 1/10/2014 (modified 1/23/2014)

Gambino's Bakery is truly one of, if not the best bakery in the New Orleans area. They did an absolutely wonderful job on our wedding cake and Groom's cake. Jackie Sue is great to work with and took the time to make sure our cakes turned out just how we wanted - and I have to say, my cake was even more beautiful than I had imagined! The staff at Gambino's is very talented. We received numerous compliments on the quality, presentation and taste of both of the cakes! I attended multiple bridal shows and always returned to the Gambino's table for seconds because their cakes were the most delicious! I am very appreciative of the excellent service they provided us and recommend this bakery to everyone!

Beautiful Work posted 11/17/2013 (modified 1/23/2014)

The bakers at Gambino's did a wonderful job with creating our magical wedding cake. They offered a huge selection of cake and filling flavors and even offer to flavors that you like that may not be on their list. The sales department was kind and very efficient with making sure we were provided with what we wanted. The only reason why I did not give a 5 star overall rating was because we did have some complaints about the cake being a little dry. This may not be fixable since they were end pieces that were complained about. Overall we had a beautiful cake.

Exquisite Wedding Cake! posted 9/29/2013 (modified 9/30/2013)

Thank you Gambino's Bakery for making every cake so special throughout my wedding year! I ordered every cake from the engagement party cake, bridal shower cake, couples shower cake, rehearsal dinner cake and wedding cake/groomsmen cake from Gambino's Bakery! Every cake was unique to my style! This year was so special and Gambino's added a sweet taste to all of my events! My wedding cake was over the top! My wedding vision was complete with the help of such a gorgeous wedding cake! The groomsmen cake was also one of a kind! Gambino's Bakery really knows how to build beautiful and great tasting cakes!

Amazing Value posted 8/19/2013 (modified 8/19/2013)

My family has been buying king cakes from Gambino's my entire life so I knew I had to check them out for my wedding cake. As soon as I tasted the cake I was sold. The icing on the cake (pun intended) was when they showed me the prices. These cakes are the cheapest I've ever seen but the best tasting cakes BY FAR. I will admit that they didn't decorate it correctly and placed our monogram topper in the wrong order, but the look of the cake was not my priority. To me, a cake is for eating so all I cared about was taste and price and this was a home run for sure.

More Than Thrilled! posted 8/15/2013 (modified 8/16/2013)

We contacted several bakeries for our wedding and ended up going with Gambinos because they were so easy to work with and so helpful! We are so glad we did.
We were planning our wedding from across the country, so email and phone calls were a must. We always got fast and friendly responses.
The pricing was also the best we were quoted and they had a million flavor options. We went with devils food for the main cake and it was incredible! Our groom's cake was a giant waffle and not only did it look fantastic, but it tasted amazing!
We give Gambino's two giant thumbs up!

Tradtional, Beautiful, Elegant Wedding Cake posted 8/3/2013 (modified 8/4/2013)

Every little girl, dreams of being a princess one day, and marrying the man of her dreams!! But then their is the cake, without Gambino's putting her vision into this glorious and stunning cake that stood as the focal point in a room designed to hold such an extraordinary wedding cake which completed the dreams of my daughter. Your designers and staff was so helpful and we appreciate the time you took to make this special day complete!!! Our guest stood with amazement as they entered the room, but most importantly enjoyed each and every bite as it was delicious!!! Thank you !!!

Delicious cake, lacking in presentation posted 7/22/2013 (modified 1/23/2014)

We had a great experience choosing and ordering our wedding cake and grooms cake. Sharon was wonderful to work with and very helpful. The cake was absolutely delicious! I don't normally like cake but they have one of the best in the city, especially for the value. Unfortunately, they were lacking significantly on the presentation side of things. There were words misspelled on our groomscake and pieces falling off of our wedding cake by the time we got to our reception. That being said, their customer service was very good to us when we complained about the presentation. Overall, I think we would order another cake from them again, but would probably choose one of their premade designs, rather than trying something different.

Vendor Comments

Hello Kellie,
I am so sorry that you were not 100% happy with your wedding and groom's cake. I hope that Sharon was able to rectify the situation. We hope that we will see you in the near future:) Congratulations again on your wedding!
