Wedding Pie!Reviewed on 3/26/2015
Gambinos helped us put together a wedding pie table on Pi Day (3.14.15!). From start to finish, they were super to work with. Jackie-Sue helped us with a pie tasting, and was super responsive to all of my questions and ideas over email. They handled our wedding with care, and were incredibly friendly and helpful. To top it off, EVERYONE raved about the pies at the wedding, they were a huge hit! Especially the Bourbon Pecan and Chocolate Pecan. I would highly recommend Gambinos to anyone!
I had a great experience working with Gambino's Bakery. From the moment I walked into Gambino's, everything was so easy. I worked with Mrs. Jackie-Sue, and she was amazing! She listened to all of my ideas and concerns about our wedding cake, and she was very patient with me which was a big deal because I can be indecisive at times! She also gave me recommendations for what would work best with our cake and design. Mrs. Jackie-Sue helped to customize our wedding cake to be exactly how I wanted it to be. She even sketched out the design to give to the cake designer. She also helped to customize my husband's groom's cake, too. It was a cake they had never done before, and her ideas were awesome. Both of the cakes exceeded our expectations! Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful, and the groom's cake was a huge hit!! The best part about it all is that once I left the appointment, I did not have to worry about anything else for the cakes. We can't thank Gambino's and Mrs. Jackie-Sue enough. I highly recommend them to anyone for all of your wedding needs! Thank you again Gambino's for everything!
Gambino's exceeded all of my expectations. They were so pleasant and easy to work with when designing our wedding cake.They were open to anything I wanted as far as design goes, and our cake came out absolutely stunning. We received so many compliments on how delicious and moist our cake was from several guests. My husband also ordered his grooms cake from here and we were BLOWN AWAY. He found a picture online of a crawfish pot that was half LSU/half Saints design. When we saw the cake at the reception, we could not believe our eyes-it looked like something you see in a magazine! They even added some cute touches to the crawfish in the pot. We also had a "chocolate table" at our reception with goodies from Gambinos-rum balls, chocolate covered oreos, chocolate covered pretzels, and oreo truffle balls- AMAZING. Everything was so delicious!
Moist and delicious red velvetReviewed on 6/25/2015 Shauntae C
I did not have time for a cake tasting, but this red velvet was delicious!!! I sent a picture of my design and color swatch by mail. The cake looked perfect and it was affordable. Jackie Sue took our order. She was easy to work with and the cake arrived at the venue the night before. I would order more cakes from there if we lived in town. Thanks!!
Everyone raved how delicious the cake was. They captured exactly what my groom wanted for his cake.
Fantastic groom's cakeReviewed on 4/24/2015
We got our groom's cake - a four-tiered king cake - from Gambino's. The king cake was excellent, extremely flavorful and moist. The presentation was festive and eye-catching. Gambino's was a pleasure to work with. I'd definitely use them again for cake needs.
Red velvet wedding cake!Reviewed on 3/25/2015 Mary M
Gambino's did an amazing job taking pictures that I brought, and making our cake look just like them! The worked with us on our budget, since Chateau does a cake credit through them. The cake tasted amazing, and it looked beautiful.
Perfect result!Reviewed on 12/19/2014 Laura K
Gambino's made my wedding cake (200 guests). I was thrilled with the result. We did have to follow up several times to make sure all instructions were correct. However, they delivered EXACTLY what I wanted, at the exact time they promised. This was greatly appreciated by this self-planner. I recommend using Gambino's if you want a delicious cake for a large number of guests. They did not disappoint.
Butterfly wedding cakeReviewed on 11/24/2014 Marcy V
Gambino's bakery was very friendly from the first day we stepped in to taste test. We had chose to buy our wedding cake and grooms cake from them. Both cakes were so delicious and exactly what we wanted and more. I am glad I trusted Gambino's because they surely do know exactly what they are doing. Plus I am a cheapskate and i was extremely empressed with there prices!!! I would highly recommend them. Marcy & Adam Wedding date: November 7, 2014
Grooms CakeReviewed on 11/22/2014 Jennifer D

Gambino's bakeryReviewed on 10/30/2014
Awesome cakes, and friendly service. I will never order a cake from anywhere else.
Dream Wedding CakeReviewed on 10/30/2014 Amanda K
Working with Jackie-Sue at Gambino's was an absolute pleasure! I had a vision and numerous pictures of what I wanted for my wedding cake. She was able to pull all of those ideas together and create my dream wedding cake! Along with being perfect, it was also delicious! Not only did she create my vision, she created the perfect groom’s cake for my husband. Again, I had several ideas I wanted incorporated into the cake to encompass all of his favorite hobbies. At our reception, he and I were both so in love with our cakes. My husband couldn’t believe the detail and thought that went into his cake! I recommend Gambino’s to all future brides! They truly make you feel like family and you are their most important bride! -Amanda Messina
Love Gambino's!Reviewed on 10/28/2014 julia b
I have been a Gambino's fan for years, always making sure to stop in at least once every time I'm in New Orleans, usually for a King Cake during Mardi Gras or a Doberge cake (just because!). So it was a no-brainer when we decided to do a destination wedding in New Orleans that we would have a Gambino's wedding cake. Since i was an out-of-town Bride everything was coordinated seamlessly via email including choosing the cake design and flavors. We went with the three-tiered "Southern Oaks" design with different flavors for each tier. It was beautiful and delicious! Gambino's and the venue handled...well handling, delivery, and everything. Not one ounce of stress involved (not even for my Italian mother!) and everything came out perfect. Jackie-sue and the cake team even created a custom groom's cake, the T.A.R.D.I.S. from the TV Show Doctor Who, which turned out so amazingly well, not only was it delicious (chocolate chocolate chocolate!), but it was super tall, and included every detail on the outside of the TARDIS, including the poster and writing. I was ASTOUNDED that it held its form for hours in New Orleans summer humidity. Both cakes were true masterpieces and i would DEFINITELY recommend! Thanks so much to Gambinos!
Wedding and grooms cake!Reviewed on 10/23/2014 Jourdan T
I could not have been happier with my Wedding Cake and Groom’s cake. Both cakes were exactly what I had expected. The wedding cake was beautiful and delicious! The groom’s cake was decorated to perfection and the ½ caramel , ½ chocolate doberge was a favorite for my guests. I had so many compliments about how delicious the cakes were. I could not have been happier. They are very professional and provide what you ask for. I would definitely recommend Gambino’s for Wedding and Grooms cakes.
I love their cakesReviewed on 8/26/2014 Carrie F
I grew up on Gamino birthday cakes. The bakery was the preferred vendor with our catering venue. The price of the bride's cake was included in our catering price and we paid for the groom's cake. We gave them directions for both cakes and they turned out just the way we wanted. People still are talking about how good the cakes were. I'm glad we used them.
Mrs. NatishaReviewed on 7/27/2014 Natisha S
The cake was exactly what I wanted. My guest are still raving about the cake. Very moist and delicious!
Best Wedding CakeReviewed on 4/08/2014 Sarah P
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.
MelissaReviewed on 3/31/2014 Melissa H
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..Reviewed on 2/18/2014 Marcela G
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.
Will use again and againReviewed on 2/01/2014 Emily m
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!
BEAUTIFUL & TASTYReviewed on 1/26/2014 Vina R
The only thing I have to say is Beautiful and Mmmm Mmmm good!!! They did an excellent job!!! I enjoyed the cake so much, I was upset when it done!!! I will definitely go there again to try some of their other treats!
The cake of my dreamsReviewed on 1/22/2014 Genevieve H
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.
Wedding and Groom's CakesReviewed on 1/10/2014 Caroline M
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!
