Originally from Myrtle Beach, SC, my husband and I recently moved into the area by way of Oregon for work and loved New Orleans so much that we decided to have our wedding here. All the typical stress that comes from planning a wedding was with me everyday, not to mention our... Read More nearest family members were 13hrs away and we had no familiarity with the area, local vendors, etc. When it came to our cake, I had some serious standards. I have some serious bakers in from both sides of my family. My Italian Grandmother is known for her Italian cookies and pastries and my N'Ma-legend has it- would make FROM SCRATCH pies and cobblers every Sunday to feed the neighborhood! Needless to say, I wanted a wedding cake that tasted just like grandma made it. I when I walked into Gambino's sure enough there were 5 little ladies baking away! :) The cake and fillings had so much flavor and were so moist that it tasted as if each slice was made individually. I couldn't have been happier and I encourage everyone to check out the amazing selection they have over there. You WON'T be disappointed.

Naked Wedding Cake & King Cake Extravaganza

Awesome job on giving us a delicious and beautiful "naked cake" that was exactly what we pictured. Sent some pictures of what we liked and they nailed it.

From the moment I got engaged I was excited about my wedding cake. It was wonderful. I got a different filling in each layer and made sure to get a larger cake so I could freeze some to eat after our honeymoon. Taking it out the freezer it taste just as good as the wedding day.

Amazing cake! This was, quite simply, the most delicious wedding cake I have ever had, and many guests have told me the same. It was beautiful and flavorful. Gambino's was easy to work with and the pricing was quite reasonable. They have a variety of delicious fillings to... Read More choose from. (My husband picked out caramel filling for the chocolate cake and it was quite a hit!). We had a small miscommunication with them over a minor detail, and Gambino's went above and beyond to take care of everything and make it right as soon as it was discovered. To me this speaks even more highly of them than the delicious cake itself. They really cared and were completely dedicated into making sure things were exactly what we wanted. The cake was amazing, the service was impeccable, and I would absolutely recommend them without reservation. Thank you Gambino's!

My husband and I could not have chose a better bakery for our wedding day. Neither one of us had never had Gambinos and we are both from Louisiana. I received a really awesome review from a fellow Gambino bride and how she fell madly in love with her cakes. We scheduled a cake... Read More testing with Gambinos in Lafayette and that was the only one we scheduled. We were so impressed by just the cake testing we had for breakfast. :) We ordered yellow cakes for our day however there are plenty choices to choose from. My cake was a 3 tier with cream cheese and pecan for one tier, rasberry on the other tier and lemon for the last tier. My husband's cake was lemon and pineapple. Our favorite was the cream cheese and pecan. We thought it was amazing and so did everyone else who called us days after the wedding asking where did we order our cake from. All of the workers were very helpful and our cake was designed just like we wanted it. Being that my husband is Active Duty military we really appreciated that Gambinos honors our soldiers. We no longer reside in the south, however I am from Lafayette and will make a visit to Gambinos every time we visit.
