My groom's cake (a Yeti cooler completely customized to him) was the HIT of the wedding! There may have been more photos posted of the cake than us! The whole process from start to finish was fabulous! The tasting was amazing. I had to reschedule and my fiance couldn't make it, so they gave me a tasting sample to take home to him. It worked out perfectly because I was able to work with the staff to totally customize his cake and he had no idea what he was getting. Everyone raved about my naked cake and all the flavors. But everyone was blown away by the Yeti cake!! These cakes were worth every penny. The whole staff is amazing. These are truly artists. I live about two hours away from the bakery, but I will never purchase a cake for any special occasion from anywhere but Cakes by Gina. I have a feeling my cakes will be talked about for years to come! Thank you, Gina and team!!! You listened to exactly what I wanted and executed my vision perfectly!
WOW!!! Where to start.... our cakes were gorgeous and exceeded our expectations!!! We did a UT tower for our grooms cake and it looked REAL! Every detail from the clock, swirls, lines were absolutely perfect and looked like the real thing!! If not better! It was a photo location the whole night!! Our wedding cake... oh my goshhhhh! Gina is so creative and used my wedding dress as the inspiration for the cake! Each layer was based on something different from my dress. She used the detail of the lace, my belt, the buttons on the back of my dress and the ruffle bottom to create a beautiful representation of my dress. I thought this was absolutely amazing and so artistic! We had so many comments on how unique and beautiful it was! Not to mention... her cakes taste AMAZING. We also got cookies are our favor from here. They were so detailed and beautiful! Here attention to detail is unmatched! Absolute best cake vendor there is!!!!
There are no words to begin to describe Cakes By Gina other than AMAZING! I'll have to start from the beginning, the cake tasting. Our experience at the cake tasting was remarkable, the presentation set the standards high from the very beginning. How can anyone pick just a few flavors right? Well Cakes By Gina lets you pick any flavor/icing combo you want. It was perfection on a plate! Next, the follow up calls. It was great to hear from Gina herself to make sure I had everything I needed in order to have the Best Day Ever! Last, but not least, The Big Day! Not only was my vision of a simply elegant cake executed, so was my husband's grooms cake. The stack of books he had in mind literally CAME TO LIFE. So many of our friends and family members asked "Who set these books here?" They had to be TOLD it was a cake. How Cool! We were blown away. The most important part everyone loves and remembers is the cake, well I had a lot of people tell me the cake was the best cake they have ever had, quite frankly same for us too! We chose 4 flavors: Vanilla Cake with French Vanilla Filling, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Mocha, and Chocolate Hazelnut. SO MUCH YUM! If you stop by Gina's it will be EXTREMELY hard to go anywhere else. Thank you again for being apart of our perfect day!
We could not be happier with Cakes by Gina! From our initial meeting to seeing it on our wedding day, everything was perfect. During our initial consultation they were asked what types of flavors we might be interested in and we got to taste all the flavors as well as all the fillings. It was great that even the tasting was customized. The groom's cake was the hit of the reception… No one could believe that it was really a cake. I would say that anyone could have complete faith that Cakes by Gina could produce exactly what you want, and get it there on time. I cannot recommend Cakes by Gina more!!
Cakes by Gina was the first cake baker we met with and the last! We knew right away that they were the one. It was love at first cake tasting! There were so many varieties of cake flavors to try and each one was divine. Gina and her team designed the perfect cake for us (we did a geode cake for our wedding at the Houston Museum of Natural Science) and it turned out beautifully and tasted absolutely amazing! Thank you so much!!!
Cakes by Gina is phenomenal! I will never forget how beautiful my wedding cake looked! It was perfect!!! Cakes by Gina also did a wonderful job making both of my husbands cakes look like their perspective school insignias! No matter what you want, Cakes by Gina will do an amazing job for you!!!
Where to start! Cakes by Gina did an outstanding job on our wedding cake as well as my husbands groom's cake. You never expect the cake to come out even better than the Pinterest photo you picked BUT Gina will exceed and pass the bar on your expectations. We had a very large 5 tier wedding cake and it was devoured with not a slice left. My family and friends were all amazed at not only how beautiful my cake was but how delicious it taste. Thank you Gina for making our wedding cake dreams come true. We had our wedding scheduled during Hurricane Harvey and she worked hand in hand with my aunt when we had to reschedule and was so understanding/flexible. She is truly talented at what she does and you won't regret booking her for your event.
Gina was AMAZZZZZZING! Everyone loves the taste of the cakes and her delivery crew was very well organized and informative. The tasting was amazing and so were her employees. Great to work with
I do not have enough words to praise this place! Cakes by Gina crafted our beautiful wedding cake, and I couldn't be more thrilled at how it turned out. Their work was especially commendable considering that the entire planning process practically happened over gmail, and a series of phone calls. Since we don't live in the same city, we never got a chance to stop by at the bakery in person for a tasting. They were recommended to us by our reception venue, and on going through all the other reviews here on Yelp (thank you, fellow Yelpers! :-)), I knew that I had found the right place. Natalie Plentl was our contact person, and she was so responsive and helpful. I had a very specific design in mind for our wedding cake (thank you, Pinterest!), and she understood exactly what I had in mind right from the get-go. Natalie is amazing! I also wanted our cake to be in an atypical flavor, so we went for a three-tiered cake in vanilla buttercream with a strawberry + cream cheese filling. It was beautiful, and delicious! Our guests were pleasantly surprised by this combination, and we received a lot of compliments on the cake. We know for a fact that people went in for seconds, and even though we had other desserts, our wedding cake was a hit! We are only slightly wistful about the fact that we didn't get to eat too much of it ourselves (#gluttony!), and that we were not able to take away a frozen top tier given the logistics of flying it with us. So if you're planning an event in the Houston area - please go with Cakes by Gina for your cake! They are amazing! P.S.: The only thing I would ask to be made a note of is that they do not issue refunds once the final payment has been made. However, they do let you apply the credit towards an additional dessert for the same event, or for future events. Just a thing to keep in mind while placing an order - the additional dessert too is amazing, so it all works out great even if you have to change the order size, etc.
We had such a great experience with Cakes by Gina! The staff was all very kind, helpful, skilled, and professional. Gina made us feel like family and was able to work with us through the design process. If we had an idea or concept we liked (or something that we didn't like), she worked with us to help figure out what we could do on the cake and how to make it the best design. In the end, we had a geode cake that turned out AMAZING. The flavors of the cake were delicious! Everything we tried was so good that we had a hard time choosing our flavors for the cake. In the end, we chose chocolate with raspberry and lemon with lemon curd. Many of our guests raved at how delicious the cake was.
We went to do a cake taste at Gina's not quite sure that we would go with her but as soon as we tasted those cakes we were sold! They are the best cakes we have ever had! Our guest LOVED them, we were happy with their service and with the outcome of the cake. We will for sure be repeat customers. Thank you for your great work!!!
Everyone had recommened Cakes by Gina and I will be doing the same thing moving forward. The cake was so so delicious and I wish it had been socially acceptable to eat more. They made a bride and grooms cake and they were both beautiful and delicious. I know Groom's cakes tend to be a Texas thing so many of our guests didn't know what to expect and Cakes by Gina made the most amazing Florida State Arrowhead and everyone was so impressed. Even the cake tasting was fun and easy. My now husband asked if he could bring my sister and pretend to be a different person so he could cake taste again. Great place, highly recommend.
When I walked in Cakes by Gina I was impressed with the attractive and clean store front. My wedding cake quest ended the moment that I tasted her delicious and moist cakes. Outstanding!! Working with Alex, Gina’s sister, and Gina herself was a pleasure. They are personable, professional and have a keen eye for detail. Cake tasting was a stress free and joyful experience. Gina, I want to thank you and your great team for my beautiful and delicious wedding cake, a dream come true in such a short notice. My guests were delighted, raving about the cake, telling me that it was the best wedding cake that they have ever had. All of them wanted to know who made it! Cakes by Gina is the place to get your cake, I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed. Cuando entre a Cakes by Gina, me impresionó ver su salón de entrada lleno de hermosos pasteles, y la limpieza del lugar. En el momento en que probé los deliciosos y esponjosos pasteles de Gina, mi búsqueda por el pastel de bodas termino. Que delicia!! Difícil de escoger porque todos son deliciosos. Trabajando con Alex, la hermana de Gina, y con Gina fue algo especial. Ellas son unas personas muy amables, profesionales y se fijan en los mínimos detalles. La prueba del pastel de bodas fue una experiencia sin estrés y muy agradable. Gina, quiero agradecerte a ti y a tu equipo por el hermoso y delicioso pastel de bodas, un sueño hecho realidad y en muy corto tiempo. Mis invitados estaban encantados hablando del pastel, diciéndome q era el mejor pastel de boda que habían comido. Todos querían saber quién lo había hecho. Cakes by Gina es el lugar para pedir su pastel, lo recomiendo altamente, no se decepcionaran.
Oh. My. Cakes By Gina was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Almost a month later, guests are still commenting how amazing our cake & cake balls were... The cake was SO good - as in we might not be able to wait an entire year to crack into our top layer, level good. Not to mention, our entire experience with Gina and her team from start to finish was A+. Her friendliness, creativeness, attention to detail, and commitment to client service ensured the final product was exactly what we had envisioned! When we walked in the door for our tasting, I had no idea what a treat the visit would be. She stopped at nothing to ensure we left there knowing they could create the cake(s) of our dreams. From having a cake ball flavor they ran out of whipped up to getting additional foam layer models cut (to help conceptualize the tier sizes and heights) on the spot, I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Gina. Moral of the story: Cakes by Gina will be sure you are take care of as if you are their only client - and you will have a great (and tasty) time in the process.
Cakes b Gina did an AWESOME job on our wedding cakes. The brides was a tres leches and was perfect! But it was the grooms cake that got the most raves!! It was Bear Brent's Alabama hat!! Thank your Gina and staff!!! Don't look anywhere else!!!
The grooms cake you did for my nephews wedding was PERFECT. I was truly amazed at how you mastered it. And all the delicious desserts for the rehearsal dinner were fantastic. Thank you so much for your excellence!
We had such an amazing experience with Cakes by Gina. From our initial in house taste testing, Gina was so kind and accommodating. I wanted something simple but beautiful and by showing just a few photos of ideas Gina hand drew exactly what I had envisioned. She is so proud of her work and her store and you can taste it in the cake. Highly recommend!!
Our wedding cake was so delicious, the photographer had to stop me from saying "Ohhh my goodness," and smile normally when she was taking our "cake cutting" photos. Gina's cakes are out of this world delicious. My husband and I couldn't agree on flavors during our tasting, so we went with alternating tier flavors. He had the white cake with raspberry filling, and I had the tres leches (which is AMAZING) with pineapple filling. We had buttercream frosting for all of the tiers. The cake was so fresh and moist! The buttercream work was GORGEOUS! Gina nailed the color of the bottom tier to match my accent color of light lilac. It perfectly matched my bridesmaids dresses and napkins. My guests raved about how delicious the cake was and were shocked at how amazing it looked and tasted since they were so used to dry wedding cakes. And to top it off, Gina's team was so amazing at setting up all the appointments and confirming our details. Thank you so much, Gina! You and your team are so talented. I can't wait to design another cake together!
Gina's cakes are absolutely amazing. We had a huge wedding cake for 400+ guests and Gina's crew definitely delivered. The cake looked exactly like how we had planned it and incorporated our dream for what we wanted. We had multiple flavors for each tier, and it was absolutely delicious. Thank you!
Amazing cakes! The best ever! Worth every penny. Once you have tasted their cakes, you wont go anywhere else. Fantastic ladies also. Great service.
Our cake turned out beautifully! They were responsive and flexible with changes.
Great cake and flavors! If you want a incredible cake you must go to Gina!
Gina did an incredible job with our wedding cake. Her proposal on the cake design was wonderful and the final result surpassed what we envisioned. The cake flavors (as we had 4 tiers) were incredible and our guests were elated with the tres leches tier (from what I understand, she is the only place in town that can do a tres leches). Above all, she made us feel special and felt that our cake was made with care and love. I wouldn't hesitate in choosing Gina. Mind you, we tried many other well-known places (River Oaks area) and they couldn't compare to the taste or cost.
We loved the cakes the moment we did the tasting! There were so many good flavors that it was difficult to choose the best one. The cake looked exactly how I envisioned it, and we got many compliments from our guests about how delicious it was! Can't wait to have it again at our first anniversary!
Cakes by Gina was an absolute pleasure to work with in picking out my husband and my wedding cakes. We went into the process expecting to have a good time choosing designs and flavors for our cakes, but Gina went above and beyond in making our experience even better. My parents joined us for cake tasting, and all of us looking back would say it was one of our favorite moments in wedding planning. We all loved the experience not just because the cake was delicious but because Gina and her team are a blast to be around. Gina also drew a design of both of our cakes right in front of us, which has turned out to be one of our favorite keepsakes from wedding planning. And lastly, while we expected the cake to be tasty, I had no idea that our wedding cake for 300 people would be one of the most delicious desserts I have ever tasted. Our guests gave rave reviews as well. Thanks to Gina and her team for an amazing experience leading up to and on the day of our wedding. We highly recommend Cakes by Gin to any couple getting married in Houston!
